Vehicles and bikes share the roads

To the editor:

On behalf of the Silver Wheels Bicycle Club, I want to thank Oberlin for its support of May 18’s Ride of Silence. This nationwide ride draws attention to bike safety for riders and drivers. We want to thank Oberlin police Lt. Mike McCloskey and Officer Jim Vinkovich for organizing a police escort to the ride, the Oberlin News-Tribune for its coverage of the event, and Silver Wheels members Mark Kasmark and Patti Habernicht for their participation in the ceremony. Events such as these raise awareness that many times vehicles and bicycles are sharing the same roads.
