Last year’s moving Windsor Ride of Silence spawned a new Ride of Silence location for 2012. Eric Peters, whose son Kyle was struck and killed while cycling in Leamington in 2010 will be hosting the ride.
The Leamington Ride of Silence will meet at the Caldwell First Nation Community Hall (14 Orange Street) at 5:30pm for registration. The ride will begin at 7pm, and will be escorted by a hearse from Reid’s Funeral Home and the OPP.
The Ride of Silence will take place in hundreds of cities worldwide on Wednesday May 16th.
As with all locations for the Ride of Silence, the ride will be a slow, silent procession meant to honour those injured or killed while cycling, and to remind motorists of the need to share the road.
