2016 Hilton Head Island Ride of Silence
Classification/Distance: C

Directions to start: Street Meet (Port Royal Plaza, 95 Mathews Drive, Hilton Head Island)

Start time: Meet at 6:30 p.m. (Ride starts promptly at 7:00 p.m.)
 
Ride Leader: John Marcinowski  

Description: On Wednesday, May 18, at 7:00 p.m., the annual Ride of Silence (ROS) will begin in North America and roll around the globe.  In 2003, the first ROS took place in Dallas after endurance cyclist Larry Schwartz was hit by the mirror of a passing bus and was killed. The Dallas ride drew 1,000 cyclists through word of mouth and email communication over a period of only ten days.  In 2015, there were 340 such rides in 49 states, 20 countries and 7 continents.

The ROS is a free ride that hopes to raise cycling awareness during the month of May (National Bike Month) to motorists, the general public, police, traffic engineers, insurance companies, and city officials.  The ROS promotes a "share the road" message and works to educate the public on the right of both cyclists and motorists to legally use the roads in a safe manner.  Many cyclists are scared or threatened daily due to motorists passing too closely, honking or yelling at cyclists to get off the road.  These behaviors are unsafe and illegal.  Bicyclists are considered drivers of a vehicle and have the same responsibilities and rights to the roads as motorists.

For those wishing to participate in the local ROS organized by Kickin' Asphalt Bicycle Club (KABC) to honor those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roadways, please arrive at the Street Meet parking lot in Port Royal Plaza with bicycle, lights are highly recommended and black arm-band.  Helmets are mandatory. There will be a ceremony, sign-in and safety briefing between 6:30 and 7:00 p.m.  The 9-mile police escorted ride will roll out promptly at 7:00 p.m.  The ride will leave the parking lot and head south on U.S. 278 (at a speed of 10-12 mph)  to the new stop light at Queens Way and back to Street Meet for fellowship after.

The total ride is 18-20 miles, slow to medium paced. Group will stay together, unless a large group needs to be divided.

It also includes the entire 16 mile R/T distance on the new Spanish Moss Trail (paved, very wide, nice!) Plan on approximately 10:00 to 2:30 or 3:00pm.

The total ride is 18-20 miles, slow to medium paced. Group will stay together, unless a large group needs to be divided. When the ride arrives at the waterfront in Port Royal (mid-point), some riders may choose to “ride fast” back to their cars in downtown Beaufort, as an option.
