All cyclists are invited to ride together to remember 11 people who died and support 1600 who were injured while cycling in Hong Kong in 2018 and to quietly make the statement that “we are here” and deserve respect and consideration on the road. This is one of hundreds of such rides around the world at the same time, annually on the third Wednesday in May.
This will be the 14th year we have ridden together in this way.
Reminder: please let’s ride quietly or in silence as we remember others.
Route: TST Clock Tower (Starting point) > Eastbound Salisbury Road > Northbound Nathan Road > Westbound Lai Chi Kok Road > Northbound Wong Chuk St > Westbound Yu Chau St > Southbound Yen Chow St > Eastbound Lai Chi Kok Road > Southbound Nathan Road > TST Clock Tower (Finishing point)
Police will inspect bikes for lights (front and back) and brakes, and probably reflectors and bells. Please be prepared.
Bad Weather: We’ll continue under Amber or Red rainstorm warning signal. Event will be postponed to another date if Black rainstorm warning signal is in force or in prospect.
Please dress and behave to show respect to those who died last year and support for those who were injured. If not silent, please keep your voice low and please no music on the ride.
