FEATURED EVENT MAY 17
2017 Ride of Silence: 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 17, Street Meet parking lot in Port Royal Plaza, 95 Mathews Drive, Hilton Head Island. The Hilton Head Island annual Ride of Silence honors those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roadways. The ride is a silent procession, sponsored locally by Kickin’ Asphalt Bicycle Club and is part of an international observance. This year’s ride has special meaning because of the 11 cyclists who were killed in Beaufort County last year. To participate, arrive with a bicycle, helmet (mandatory), lights (recommended) and black armband. There will be a ceremony, sign-in and safety briefing between 6:30 and 7 p.m. The first 50 riders to register will receive a free gift. The 9-mile police escorted ride rolls out promptly at 7 p.m. while a member of the Savannah Pipes and Drums plays “Amazing Grace.” Visit www.kickinasphalt.info for more details.
