Ride of Silence Ride Wednesday...

Fellow Cyclists,

In light of the recent hit and run severely injuring Mike Bitton, we are moving the Ride of Silence start to the parking lot on Skip Bertman and River Road across from the Vet School near the site of the collision. The ride will still begin at 7PM, head down Nicholson to Government to Acadian and back to the Vet School. We will be done with this 10 mile loop around 8PM

Everyone is invited to Chelsea's under the Perkins Road overpass following the ride for a benefit to raise money for Mike Bitton. The LSU Cycling team is organizing a benefit to help defray the massive costs him and his family are incurring following the accident.

Remember, Helmets are mandatory for the ride and lights are highly recommended. If possible, wear a black armband for those who have died, or a red armband if you have been injured by a motorist.
