Yesterday, I received an e-newsletter from the Ride of Silence organizers reporting on this year’s event:
The Ride of Silence board would like to thank you for organizing an event this year. We hope you had favorable weather and a good turnout of bicyclists who, along with many bystanders and motorists, were positively impacted by the event. Since the event took place, we’ve received the following statistics:
Total 2011 Riders To Date: 8,153
Number of Locations Reporting in: 90 (out of 322 known locations, or only 28%)
(These numbers were copied from our online report viewing tool which allows anyone to learn about our events).
Thank you again. Have a great summer!

A million powerful memories
I regret that I did such a poor job as the ride coordinator in terms of promotion, raising awareness, and follow-up. I sincerely hope to invest more time and energy into next year’s ride. More importantly, though, I hope that we’ll all be more mindful of the things this ride stands for throughout the year. That said, it’s good to see the momentum building worldwide.
