Ride of Silence
On Wednesday May 15th, 2019, The Park in the City Committee will host their 13th Annual Ride of Silence bicycle ride event. Thank you to Inception Cyclery and St. John Ambulance for providing complimentary support. Also to the SCVFA and Amici Per La Vita Cycling Club for hosting and helping to organize the event. The annual free bicycle ride event encourages all residents to take part and ride in honour of severely injured and fallen cyclists. You don’t have to be a serious cyclist to participate and all ages are welcome. You just need a safe bike and a helmet and be comfortable riding along the roadway within our city. The ride is a slow, procession style, approximately 10 km ride, with all cyclists following the rules of the road. Check out some great footage from last year's event.
10 KM Route
The route starts at Firemen's Parks, heading east on Mountain Road and east again on Portage Road. Cyclists will turn south onto Stalney Avenue, crossing Thorold Stone Road onto the Millennium Recreational Trail - Paisley Janvary-Pool Pathway.
