Just a reminder that tonight is the Ride of Silence. Toronto cyclists are meeting at the corner of Bloor and Spadina tonight at 6:30 (departure time is 7:00), when we’ll ride around in silence (no talking or bells), in memory of the people who have been lost, and in solidarity with over 250 other rides taking place around the world.
I suppose if someone asks me why we’re riding I’ll speak then, but will try and keep my mouth shut the rest of the time (it’s hard for me sometimes…).
Hope you can make it, and look for me if you can. I have a red and black raleigh mountain bike, and my favourite colour is blue, so I keep buying blue stuff… I’ll be wearing a bright blue windbreaker, blue bike helmet (festooned with turtle lights – I’ll turn them on if it gets dark and dreary while we are on the roads…), perhaps some blue and black bike gloves, and black shorts. And shoes. Blue shoes. And a grey courier bag. I think that’s it.
