Ride of Silence



Buttons of Hope

On May 21st at 7 pm, thousands of cyclists across the globe will participate in a rolling tribute to fellow cyclists who have been killed or injured pursuing their passion.

Started in 2003 to honor and remember Larry Schwartz (above) who was killed while cycling on May 4 2003, the Ride of Silence (learn more here) has grown to over 300 sites worldwide and has become the preeminent testament to cycling awareness and safety.

Michael Gibbons is a Ride of Silence organizer [Charlotte NC] and founder of Buttons of Hope. He is proud to partner with the Ride of Silence to provide custom photo buttons to wear in honor of fellow cyclists.

You can upload a digital photo and add your custom text on the Buttons of Hope website [it can be ordered by clicking here]. There are NO minimums (you can make and order a single button) and 20% of all proceeds are donated to the Ride of Silence to advance their mission! (We can also post a button image in the Ride of Silence gallery alongside Larry's so other people can order the button). Orders by regular delivery must be placed by May 12! (FedEx available at cost) Questions?? Please email or phone Michael below.

We are honored to be working with The Ride of Silence to help put a face on this cause ~ let the photo buttons speak as together we LET THE SILENCE ROAR!

Please feel free to forward this information to area bike clubs and individuals interested in Ride of Silence.
