Quincy Bike Club rides to honor deceased or injured cyclists

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

 

Dozens of bicycle riders hit the streets Wednesday night in silence.  They were remembering those who've died or been injured while biking.  This is the second time the Quincy Bike Club has taken part in a Ride of Silence.  Most of the bikers wore white and rode from Madison Park to Washington Park and back.  The Quincy Bike Club President says safety is always the most important thing, and she asks drivers to think before speeding by a biker.

"But we like to think that motorists who see people on those bikes like their own family.  If that was your sister, would you go past her that fast? If that was your dad, would you zoom around like that? You know we're all members of your community," said President Laura Seivert.  

 

Seivert said the rule on the road is to give the biker three feet of space at all times.  Cyclists also came together in Hannibal Wednesday night for a Ride of Silence.
