On May 16, 2018, the Ride of Silence will traverse and unite the globe as nothing before it. Cyclists will take to the roads in a silent procession to honor cyclists who have been killed or injured while cycling on public roadways. Although cyclists have a legal right to share the road with motorists, the motoring public often isn’t aware of these rights, and sometimes not aware of the cyclists themselves.
The Ride of Silence will gather at the Mesilla Plaza by 6:15pm. Participation in the ride is entirely voluntary and self-serve. Helmets required to participate. The ride is not recommended for children under 12, unless on a trailer or tandem. A one mile walk for those who choose not to ride will also be available. Join us as we remember community members who died or were injured while riding their bikes.
Notes: The thirteenth annual Mesilla Ride of Silence,
- Will meet at the historic Mesilla Plaza at 6:15pm on Wednesday, May 16.
- Will depart on a silent 8-10 mile ride at 6:30pm sharp.

There is no sign-in, no fee, and no organization behind the event… just some people going for a ride.
