The 17th Annual - 2019 Ride of Silence cycling event will take place on May 15, 2019 along the Rickenbacker Causeway. This event will travel onto the Crandon Boulevard roadway. See the course description below for details.

 

Course Description:                                    

The bicycle ride will depart at 7:00 p.m., from the Crandon Marina parking lot. The ride will take place with the Miami-Dade Police Department (MDPD) providing an escort type procession in marked squad cars. Once cyclists are cued up inside the marina parking lot, the MDPD will hold eastbound (inbound to Village of Key Biscayne (VKB)) vehicle traffic. Cyclists will turn right (eastbound toward the VKB) onto the roadway, merging to the inside inbound vehicle travel lane (lane closest to the center median), once the last cyclist is out, police will open vehicle traffic onto the outside vehicle travel lane (lane closest to the dedicated bike lane). Vehicle traffic traveling westbound (outbound to the mainland) from the VKB will be routed onto the outside vehicle travel lane (closest to the dedicated bike lane). Cyclists will follow the lead MDPD police vehicle on the inside inbound travel lane, turning at the Calusa Park circle (just past the fire station), traveling westerly (outbound towards the mainland) in the center inside lane to the Crandon Marina entrance. At this point cyclists will turn and complete a send loop, returning to the point of origin.
