Ride of Silence 2017

Yesterday I attended the “Ride of Silence” in Berlin for the first time. The sad reason for this event was to remember the 17 cyclists who died in the traffic last year in Berlin.

The tour was about 30 km long and passed points where people died. For their remembrance assistants stood at every place with a white or white covered bicycle and held up a sign with the data of the deceased as you will also find it at ghost bikes. To support the event I offered my help to remember a 29 year old women who died in Otto-Braun-Straße near Mendelossohnstraße.
