In an annual ceremony called the Ride of Silence, cyclists took to the road in Fort Lauderdale for a silent procession to honor fellow riders who have been killed or injured while cycling on public roadways. It was a bit sobering to hear all the stories of people who have been hit by a car while riding in South Florida, nearly everyone that I talked to had a story about a run in. In fact, some people were riding for the first time since being hospitalized after bike vs car accidents. Although cyclists have a legal right to share the road with motorists, the motoring public often isn’t aware of these rights, and sometimes not aware of the cyclists themselves. Here are some photos I took for the Sun Sentinel of the procession.
