This is the largest one-day event held globally to remember bicyclists who have been injured or killed while riding. The national website is here: http://www.rideofsilence.org. This event is always held the third Wednesday in May.
Beginning in 2017, organizing the local ride for this event has transferred from the Illinois Valley Wheelm’n to Bike Peoria.
Below is a YouTube video of the event from 2011 where we had almost 200 riders in attendance!
