All cyclists are welcome.
It was a very good turn out last night. Around 100 cyclists showed up mostly the regulars. The Ride of Silence was lead out by Pehin Yahya, MIPR Minister who is also a cyclist. If any of you travel the road along Jalan Kebangsaan, Sg Akar / Salambigar bypass in the morning or after work, most probably you will see him cycle to work and back to home.
The ride started around 8:20pm and ended around 9:50pm. The distance covered was around 25km and we were being escorted by the Royal Brunei Police.
The Ride of Silence
Tonight we number many but ride as one
In honor of those not with us, friends, mothers, fathers, sisters, sons
With helmets on tight and heads down low,
We ride in silence, cautious and slow
The wheels start spinning in the lead pack
But tonight we ride and no one attacks
The dark sunglasses cover our tears
Remembering those we held so dear
Tonight’s ride is to make others aware
The road is there for all to share
To those not with us or by our side,
May God be your partner on your final ride
