I wasn't able to attend the Ride of Silence last night, so it wasn't until reading the news this morning that I learned about a local cyclist's death yesterday afternoon.
It was in the Grand Rapids Press (here) and the Detroit Free Press (here).
A 55-year old man on a bicycle and a city dump truck collided resulting in the man's death.
Grand Rapids Mayor George Heartwell was scheduled to give a speech at the Ride of Silence, but he gave a prayer for the victim and his family instead. He also participated in the ride along with over 200 other cyclists. The RofS had special significance for Grand Rapids this year.
