The San Diego County Bicycle Coalition requests your participation in our 2nd Annual “Ride of Rememberance”.  Five cyclists have been killed in the past twelve months on our city and county roads and 216 have been injured.  Join members of the San Diego County Bicycle Coalition, the San Diego Bicycle Club, the Sierra Club, the Triathlon Club of San Diego and others in remembering our friends who have been injured or killed.

Riders will leave from a variety of locations throughout the county, coming together between 9:30 & 10:00 am on Kearny Villa Road to silently ride as many 1 mile loops as you wish.  This road design has been the scene of a number of cycling fatalities including Captain Patrick Klokow (2005)  and Larry Mahr (2001).  Media organizations have promised us that they will be there…will you?

Please join us to make a more powerful showing that Bikes Belong – Stop the Killings!

At this point group rides to the Kearny Villa Road site are planned to depart from:

Mission Bay Visitors’ Center, 8:30 am departure

Del Mar Starbucks, 8:30 am departure

Normal Heights Community Center, 4649 Hawley Avenue, 8:30 am departure

Mast High School, Santee, 8:30 am departure

(Rides will ride at a moderate pace to the ride.  Volunteer ride leaders will show you the route!)

Or create your own ride!  there is very limited car parking in this area – so bicycle on over on your own and join us!  


Light refreshments and a brief program will take place at approximately 10:30 am at  the east end of Harris Plant Road.  Last year we had approximately 500 cyclists come out for this positive sign of
solidarity.  We hope to beat that number this year!

Please pass this along to every cyclist you know!

(This ride is not a sanctioned or organized group ride, it is a peaceful and positive gathering in memory of friends and in hope of better cycling conditions!)
