This is what Charlie Taber sent me about the ride.

"Sharon,

Thanks for your note, we have had a good response from people and hope to have a sizable group show up to ride on Wednesday.

Our ride will depart from the Park n? Ride on Rt.10 at 7pm on Wednesday. The Park n? Ride is adjacent to Exit 13 off of I-89. We are encouraging riders to show up a bit earlier so we can group up before the ride and give everyone time to get their bikes ready. We will head south on Rt. 10 for 4.25 miles and turn around at the Croydon Fire Station with a return to the Park n? Ride. Total ride only 8.5 flat miles. Bob Peterson, a friend of Bob Saturley?s , will lead our group and control the pace which will not exceed 12 mph. Riders will ride single file and there will be no talking, we?ll communicate with hand signals. Police departments from Grantham and Croydon will escort the ride through both Grantham & Croydon and assist us by stopping traffic on Rt.10 when we turn around in front of the Croydon Fire Station. Eastman Recreation will also provide a SAG vehicle, just in case someone?s bike needs a ride. We are using signage from The Prouty to alert motorists that a ?Bike Event is in Progress? as they travel on Rt.10.

If you arrive to find no parking available at the Park n? Ride we have permission to park in the lot behind the Park n? Ride, entrance to there is directly across from the main entrance to Eastman just north on Rt. 10.

I look forward to seeing you on Wednesday,
Charlie Taber"

A friend of mine made a donation to the Ride of Silence and I thought you might like to see the response from them:

"Thank you! Thank you for your contribution to The Ride Of Silence. I want to give you the knowledge and confidence your donation will, first, be used to furthering the message of safe streets for bicyclists, and second, will make a difference. We receive so few donations that your financial contribution is very rare, indeed. I won?t know the amount for some time, and I?m OK with that because what you have done here is recognized something outside both of us, that is beyond what we could do as individuals, and contributed to it. That, Ms. Nixon, says volumes about you and your feelings about this quiet event.

Being an entire volunteer force that has hosted a free event on the same day, at the same time world wide for 10 years, we have gone far beyond what others who have attempted this feat, have been able to achieve to date. But resources are scarce, as you might imagine. It takes dedication, passion, manpower, and a way to make this event happen each year.

I hope a ride near you in Louisiana will be meaningful, that you will be able to participate in some capacity, and get the attention of at least a few motorists to make riding more enjoyable. I look forward to seeing and hearing about your edition of the ride next Wednesday.

Again, thank you for being part of this world wide event and your passion. May we always ride together, if not in person, then in spirit.

Please join us May 16, 2012, 7 PM
11 Days to go!

Thank you for sharing their response Sharon. I had no idea the Ride of Silence has been going on for so long. It is impressive to get a personalized response back.

10 of us went to The Red Baron after the ride. Sorry if I didn't see you to include you. There were over 100 riders in the rain, thunder and lightning.
most people made a hasty retreat.
