The Maui Bicycle League will be holding a group ride called “The Ride of Silence” on May 21st, 2016.  In the month of May, cyclists nationwide will take to the roads in a silent procession to honor cyclists who have been killed or injured while cycling on public roadways.  Although cyclists have a legal right to share the road with motorists, the motoring public often isn’t aware of these rights, and sometimes not aware of the cyclists themselves.IMG_0027
