BICYCLING — Ride of Silence, a global moment of solidarity, is bringing bicyclists together tonight for the 10th annual informal ride to commemorate cyclists who have been killed in accidents involving motor vehicles.

In Spokane, riders will meet 6 p.m. at Riverfront Park between the fountain and runner sculptures. The route is a loop that involves part of downtown.
