2015 Ride of Silence – May 20th – 7 PM – Glen Oak Park; Peoria, Illinois
Once again, the Illinois Valley Wheelm’n are organizing our 2015 edition of the Ride of Silence in Peoria, IL. The Ride of Silence is a globally-recognized movement on the 3rd Wednesday in May to remember those cyclists who have been killed or injured while enjoying the sport they love. The goal through this event is to bring together ALL cyclists in the Peoria area regardless if they are mountain bikers, roadies, casual, long distance, trick, etc…. and show the community how much of an impact we can make. We are needing your help in three different areas ->
1. Please attend the event on May 20th (Wednesday) at 7 PM in Peoria’s Glen Oak Park, and bring a friend (or two) if possible. Poster is attached with all the ride details. We have been stuck at 150 participants for the past few years – our goal this year is to break 200!
2. Print out a few copies of the attached poster, and place them where you work, your church, favorite coffee shop, etc..
3. Our ride will need a few additional volunteers to be successful. Volunteering responsibilities will require you to arrive at the event early and make sure all participants sign the waiver clipboards. Once the ride has begun, you will be dispersed as ride marshals within the group and look for others who might need assistance/help. We’ll also need help with those who would want to take pictures/video. If you are interested at all, please contact Mike Honnold at 309-696-2591 or email@example.com
Thanks! See you at the ride!
