Inviting the Cycling Community to come out and show Davenport support for the Proclamation. On Wednesday May 1st, at 5:30 pm the Mayor and City Council members will publish a proclamation for Bicycle Safety in Davenport. We have asked all the bicycle clubs and cycling groups to be present for the reading of the proclamation. It is important to show the leadership of Davenport that pedestrian and bicycle safety is paramount. Jessica Noles initiated this event. Her good friend Gage Williams was killed in a bicycle – truck accident March 12th. Jessica has pushed the city to improve bicycle safety in Davenport as well as in the other Quad Cities communities. We will rally outside of the council chambers prior to the event.

The Ride of Silence is held in North America and rolls across the globe. The Ride of Silence is a free ride that asks cyclists to ride no faster than 12 mph, wear helmets, follow the rules of the road and remain silent during the ride. The ride, which is held during National Bike Month, aims to raise the awareness of motorists, police and city officials that cyclists have a legal right to public roadways. Cyclists 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 is not aware of these rights, and sometimes not aware of the cyclists themselves.
