Tonight (or tomorrow night, ymmv) marks the 2nd Annual Ride of Silence
, a solemn testament to those that have been injured or killed while biking on the roads. Begun last year in Dallas in tribute to local ultramarathoner Larry Schwartz
, it began as a one-time tribute. Apparently, there was enough National interest to make this an annual event, and this year more than 50 cities
in the U.S. and Canada are participating.
