Cyclists will take to the roads in a silent procession to honor cyclists who have been killed or injured while cycling on public roadways. Although cyclists have a legal right to share the road with motorists, the motoring public often isn't aware of these rights, and sometimes not aware of the cyclists themselves. This is a sweeper-supported ride, approximately 10 miles. Belle Isle Park, Wednesday, May 17, 2017, 7:00 pm.
