‘Ride of Silence’ focuses on bike safety, accident victims

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Bicyclists will hit Wilmington’s streets tomorrow evening on a quiet mission. Wilmington is one of 75 cities across the country hosting a “Ride of Silence.”

The organized ride begins at Hanover Center near Empie park at 6:30 p.m. The Cape Fear Cyclists set up the event in honor of injured and killed bicyclists.

One participant stopped by the good morning carolina set to talk about safety.

“With gas prices the way they are, there’s going to be more and more people on bicycles,” said Jim Iannucci, who was in a bike accident himself. “For cyclists, obey the laws, ride right, walk left and if at all possible ride with traffic on the road”

Tomorrow’s ride is open to everyone.

May is National Bike Month.
