    Ride of Silence Singapore 2009



    from Ride of Silence Singapore | Facebook

    The Ride of Silence (rideofsilence.org) was created in honor of those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roadways.

    The ride of Silence is also a way for us, cyclists, to raise cycling safety awareness in Singapore.

    All cyclists know the roads are dangerous. In 2008, 22 Singaporeans died finding out how dangerous they really are (that is 1 person every 2 weeks); in 2009, 6 died so far.

    Granted some of these were genuine unavoidable accident, but the other part could have been avoided if proper precautions would have been taken (behaviour, helmet, lights...).

    Unfortunately, not many people know what cycling safety means.

    This event is an attempt to will help demystify and popularize cycling safety. And in turn save lives for years to come.

    I hope you will all join cyclists worldwide in a silent slow-paced ride in honor of those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roadways.

    The event will be taking places in hundredths of cities across the world. In Singapore, it will takes place on May 20, 2009 at 7:00 pm, starting from Merlion Park

    getting to the starting point wasnt easy but still they did all they could to participate in the ride.


    ..and there were plenty of riders using big bikes.


    This is set to be a yearly affair as a reminder to all riders as well as road users to be very careful on the road at all times.
