The ride is held to honor bicyclists who have been killed or seriously injured by motor vehicles, and also to promote the concept that all road users - bicyclists, walkers, runners and drivers - must share the road and take responsibility for safety.

The Eugene ride is part of other similar events held around the world.

Cyclists should meet at the EMU Amphitheater on the University of Oregon campus.

Cyclists are encouraged to wear armbands in memory of injured/killed cyclists while the group rides silently along the route.

The ride is intended to be an easy, slow, law-abiding ride that is open to all members of the community. Helmets are required.
