    got this message from Chris Phelan, the national organizer of the RoS (Ride of Silence)
    he is looking for signatures on a petition to the white house..... 


    I Just created this petition for the Ride Of Silence.
    Totally crazy, I know. But,…so was the RofS before it became so wide spread!
    I’m going for it. I gotta try.

    I wanted to let you know about a new petition I created on We the People,
    a new feature on, and ask for your support. Will you add your
    name to mine? If this petition gets 100,000 signatures by February 15, 2013,
    the White House will review it and respond!

    We the People allows anyone to create and sign petitions asking the Obama
    Administration to take action on a range of issues. If a petition gets
    enough support, the Obama Administration will issue an official response.

    You can view and sign the petition here:

    Get on a bicycle and ride one of the Rides Of Silence with the
    rest of the country and the world, May 15, 2013, 7 pm

    We respectfully petition the President and his staff to join The Ride Of
    Silence on May 15, 2013, 7pm for the boldest bike ride in history. There are
    locations in all 50 states, so there will be one near where ever the
    President is traveling. This free, slow (12 MPH), and silent ride, for a
    short distance, is a simultaneous collection of quiet statements in support
    of cyclists' right to safe travel. On one night in cities around this
    country and the world, cyclists gather annually to ride in silence to raise
    awareness of cyclists' right to the road and to honor cyclists killed by
    motorists. 2012 Ride Of Silence: 319 locations world-wide, 50 U.S. states, 20
    countries, 6 continents, 0 words spoken, a million powerful memories. Chris
    Phelan, Founder, One day, one time.

    Thank you for creating this petition!

    I passed this along to a large number of my contacts list. Many bike business people and many who are online members of various bike forums. Got a few replies, all positive. Andy.
