Bike Initiative Keweenaw will be partnering with local law enforcement to host a Ride of Silence in the Houghton/Hancock area on August 24th. This will be one of several Ride of Silence events taking place that day around the U.P.
The event is being held to honor people who have been injured or killed while biking, particularly in several recent tragic events in Michigan this year, and to raise awareness on all of the users that share the road.
The Ride of Silence is open to everyone, but helmets are required. Law enforcement will provide an escort throughout the 19 mile ride, from Hancock to Chassell and back. Please contact us with any questions.
Date & Time: Wednesday, August 24th, 6:00pm (please arrive by 5:45)
Place: Hancock, under the Lift Bridge (near the Ramada)
Distance: 19 miles, 10-12 mph pace
What to Bring: Water, comfortable clothing, and a helmet
