Imagining a Safer Future for Cyclists and Pedestrians
Sunday, October 1, 2023 from 2:00pm - 4:00pm
Sarah Langenkamp was tragically killed by a truck while bicycling home from her sons' elementary school in Bethesda, Maryland, on August 25, 2022. In the wake of her death, her family organized Ride For Your Life in Washington D.C. This event joined forces with activists across the country to improve pedestrian and bicycle safety on our streets.
This fall, Ride For Your Life is coming to Madison, WI! On Sunday, October 1, 2023, cyclists will ride 5-6 miles and pedestrians will walk 1 mile through Madison to the steps of the State Capitol for a rally to raise awareness of the need for pedestrian and cyclist safety.
This ride will be held in memory of Sarah and the many other cyclists and pedestrians who have needlessly lost their lives on our streets in Madison and around our country.
Please join us on Sunday, October 1st at Brittingham Park for a ride to the Wisconsin State Capitol to urge Congress to fund safe biking infrastructure for all. Staging will begin at 2:00pm, with a departure at 2:30pm. The ride will complete on the steps of the capital with a rally ending at 4:00pm.
Any and all are welcome to join for the ride or the gathering. Pre-register for your $10 RFYL T-Shirt*.
