Ride of silence 22nd May 2010

Ride of silence event on 22 May... First time attended a mass bicycle ride... amazing turnout despite the rain. I am really glad I came as it is not very common to see SG folks coming together for a common cause. To remember the fallen cyclists, promote safe cycling and share the road. I got to know this due to the unfortunate accident on Ben of the Pedal!damm it blog.
His blog is here..
I don't know him personally but enjoyed reading his travel blogs and stories... seemed like a really nice guy who loves bicycles... but he is gone now. RIP.

Back to ROS, there were no fancy music, no competition feeling. Lycra men,
MTB, fixie, foldie folks all waited patiently and rode together. With the slight drizzle coming down from the heavens, it almost seems that someoneupthere is also feeling sad too.
