Ride of Silence: South L.A.

The Ride of Silence will start at the Benjamin Torres Memorial Site in Gardena (135th and Gramercy), Then, we will head to Watts to the Sylvester Henderson Memorial Site. After that, we will head to Compton to the Ovidio Morales Memorial Site before heading back to Benjamin Torres Memorial Site. We ask that you bring a few candles and arrive 30 minutes before the ride starts so we can leave promptly at 7pm. As we ride across the town, there is no talking on the ride — pure silence. So, please, leave the chatter for the stops we will make at each site. Also, follow the rules of the Road Captains that will be wearing the Safety Vest.

Thanks .. your point of contact will be JP of Los Ryderz and John from East Side Riders …..See you all on the 15th!
