"The Ride of Silence is a free ride that asks its cyclists to ride no faster than 12 mph and remain silent during the ride. There is no brochure, no sponsors and no registration fees. The ride, which is held during Bike Safety month, aims to raise the awareness of motorists, police and city officials that cyclists have a legal right to the public roadways. The ride is also a chance to show respect for those who have been killed or injured.

The bike ride will depart from the Miami Seaqurium, west parking lot, on the south side of the Causeway and travel in an easterly direction (towards the Village of Key Biscayne) in the center inside travel lane of the Causeway, to the firehouse turn around loop prior to entering the Village. At this location, the ride will turn back traveling westerly (towards the mainland) in the center inside lane to the Mast Academy Drive traffic light , completing two laps, then return to the origin point.

The ride will take place with the Miami-Dade County Police providing an escort type procession in marked squad cars. City of Miami, and Village of Key Biscayne Police will also provide services for the event."
