1 Ride of Silence on Tue May 18, 2010 4:22 pm

What as happened to Lubbock's annual Ride of Silence? Is there going to be one? When will we find out?

Here is newspaper coverage of the one back in 2007: http://www.lubbockonline.com/stories/051707/loc_051707029.shtml Then, notice of the ride was posted on the Caprock Multi-Sport website (now gone to that place of deleted electrons in the sky) and in the newspaper ahead of time.

The national Ride of Silence website, http://www.rideofsilence.org/main.php, shows a time and place in other Texas cities including Amarillo, Midland, Tyler and so on, but nothing for Lubbock. Has someone dropped the ball, I mean handlebar?

Anyway, there probably will be a Ride of Silence in Lubbock, 7:00 p.m., May 19, probably at Frankford & Brownfield Hwy. Guess the info is passed by word of mouth.

2 Mystery? on Tue May 18, 2010 4:40 pm

Part of the mystery is how the forum at Broadway Bikes seems to be closed. I thought I had an account there, but am not recognized, there is no place to register, and nothing whatever posted about the Ride of Silence.

You would think the Lubbock Bicycle Club website--which is rather cute, with sponsors and links--would have something about it, but it doesn't. And posting is closed to non-members.

Seems that local cyclists want to be really quiet about the Ride of Silence.
