Ride of Silence

Germany´s first ROS took place last week. Daniel Doerk´s (itstartedwithafight.de) incessant work for the improvement and humanization of Osnabrück´s traffic situation led to about one hundred participants cycling into Osnabrück town centre on Wed at 7pm.

While the general atmosphere wasn´t exactly one of silence, with the bikes people brought a never ending topic, it still was quite horrible to listen to the second-by-second investigation accounts of three lethal accidents being read in the spots where the cyclists actually died.

Let´s hope there won´t be another ride necessary next year.
