More than 100 bicyclists rode through downtown last night for Spokane’s first ‘Ride of Silence’ as part of Bike to Work Week.

The international event was meant to draw attention to the need for increased awareness among those who share the roadways, and it was a poignant message considering it began at the street corner where a Spokane man was killed in a hit-and-run bicycle accident in March.

Here’s the story from the Spokesman-Review. And here is a guest post to the Cycling Spokane blog by Jeanna Hofmeister who participated in the Ride of Silence. Thanks to Bike to Work Barb for bringing it to my attention.
