International Ride of Silence
The Arlington Heights Bicycle Club participates in a very special ride each year -- the International Ride of Silence. Arlington Heights is one of more than 300 cities that participate in this world wide event. The ride is held in remembrance and honor of those who have suffered injury or death while cycling. The ride is held on the third Wednesday of May each year, and leaves from Recreation Park in Arlington Heights starting at 7:00 p.m. Many sites also have a Walk of Silence concurrent with the Ride in rememberance and honor of pedestrians who have suffered injury or death while walking.
If your community has a Vision Zero plan, please support those efforts.
