On the third Wednesday of May, at 7 PM local around the world in over 300 locations, cyclists will take to the roads in a silent protest of the carnage taking place on the streets. Annually over 600 cyclists are killed and 51000 injured. Among them: Paige Hicks, Brown '11 was killed in 2010 riding across the US. Michael Strickland was killed cycling in Newport in March 2012.

Chris Phelan organized the first Ride Of Silence in Dallas in 2003 after endurance cyclists Larry Schwartz was killed by a passing bus mirror on an empty road.

The Ride Of Silence is a free ride that asks its cyclists to ride no faster than 12 mph and remain silent during the ride.
