Courtesy of: The Bicycle Coalition of Maine invites the public to join the Ride of Silence May 19.

Every year, the International Ride of Silence is held to honor vulnerable road users who have been injured or killed by traffic violence while bicycling, to raise awareness that bicyclists have a legal right to use the road, and to remind motorists to respectfully share the road with all users.

This year's event will be on Wednesday, May 19 at 7 p.m., and Maine currently has rides scheduled in Augusta, Lewiston, Portland, Rockland, and Saco.

As the official Maine state coordinator for the Ride of Silence, the Bicycle Coalition of Maine is hosting a webpage at where you can find information about all the ride locations, general guidelines, registration details, and COVID protocols in place.
