Ride of Silence, May 15

On Wednesday May 15 Duke City Wheelmen hosted the Ride of Silence.  This was an especially somber ride with many out to remember Rob Oakes, a New Mexico Touring Society member, who was killed by a driver who crossed the center line on NM15, near Silver City, NM.  It was very brave of the Oakes family member to join us at the start of the ride, with some cycling with us as well.
