On Saturday, September 17th, bike safety advocates and concerned citizens in Cleveland will be accompanying Steve Bingham and Francoise Blusseau on a memorial ride honoring the life of their daughter Sylvia, and marking the day she was killed by a truck while riding her bike to work in 2009.

This Ride of Silence will assemble at West 11th St. and Fairfield in Tremont, and depart at 11:30am, following the route she took to work on September 15, 2009.  After a brief observance where she died at E21st St. and Prospect Ave, the ride will pass by the location where she worked as a Vista volunteer for Hard Hatted Women, at 46th and Prospect, and end with a gathering to remember her remarkable life with a potluck lunch in Perk Park at East 12th and Chester Ave.

Please join the Facebook event for the ride here, and for more information about Sylvia, and her parents' dedicated work in her memory, start here.
