Ride of Silence in Nyack, NY

Ride of Silence has been rescheduled for TONIGHT, Tuesday, May 21, starting in Nyack, NY, and traveling to Piermont, NY. Starts at 6:30 PM , (it was rescheduled due to expected RAIN last week)

The Rockland Bicycle Club will join cyclists throughout the country today with a 6:30p Ride of Silence from Nyack to Piermont. It’s also a tribute to Rockland County resident Janet Martinez who was struck and killed by a car while riding on 9W near the the South Nyack/Upper Grandview  border last June.

On May 21 at 6:30p, the Rockland Bicycling Club (RBC) will ride silently in the 11th annual Ride Of Silence to raise awareness of bike safety issues on local roads.  The route will start at Upper Nyack Elementary School and travel south on Broadway, moving east to Piermont Ave/ River Road after passing the South Nyack Village Hall. Participants will wear either a red or black armband to honor someone who has been injured by a motorist. A black armband means the rider is mourning a cyclist who was fatally injured.
