2023 Ride of Silence – San Francisco

Wednesday, May 17 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

“Remembering Those We’ve Lost”

San Francisco’s annual Ride of Silence is a solemn group ride to honor those injured or killed while biking. This ride continues to reach a global scale that now takes place in over 20 countries in May, with thousands of people riding their bikes to remember, support each other, and heal collectively. This year marks 21 years of the Ride of Silence.

This ride is a silent group ride that is appropriate for all ages and abilities. During the ride, we will stop to lay flowers and observe a moment of silence at the sites of recent biking fatalities and honor those we have lost while spreading the message that people who bike represent precious lives. Also, we will be making a stop at South Park to honor the lives of those we lost in our bike messenger community and others. We will listen to some reflections from family members and friends of those we lost at some of the stops and we will be doing a live ghost bike installation at San Francisco City Hall.

This year, San Francisco City Hall will be illuminated a bright white to honor those who were killed while biking in San Francisco and the Ride of Silence. This is the third year of recognition by The City and County of San Francisco.

Route: Details will be updated shortly.

Our theme: “Remembering Those We’ve Lost”. We are all deeply affected when we lose someone in our community, and together, we will ride, remember, reflect, and heal.

Meet up will be at In Chan Kaajal Park on 17th Street (between Shotwell and Folsom).
