Quincy cyclists come together to ‘Ride in Silence’

A group of about 50 people gathered at Quincy’s Madison Park Wednesday night and took a short ride through the streets of Quincy for a ‘Ride of Silence.’

The cyclists ride in silence to honor other cyclists who have been killed or injured while riding their bicycle on a public roads. 

The Quincy group was one of more than 350 bike clubs in 35 countries who took part in the ride, which is held during National Bike Month.

"One of the problems is that many motorists when they’re out on the roads are looking for cars," said Ivan Paul, president of the Quincy Bike Club. "They’re not looking for bikes."

The ride also serves as a reminder to motorists to look out for cyclists as the weather gets warmer.

The law requires drivers give cyclists at least three feet of space when they pass.
