Hong Kong - Ride of Silence

On 18 May about 1000 cyclist rode through the streets of Tsim Sha Tsui to commemorate the cyclists the world over who had been killed or injured when riding on the roads.  The event takes place each year and has now grown to over 300 locations across the globe.  Starting from the clock tower by the Star Ferry terminal in Tsim Sha tsui we rode past the Peninsula Hotel and up Nathan Road, (quite possibly one of the worst roads for traffic safety in Hong Kong)  So many cyclists participated that it took 45 minutes for the procession to cross the finsih line.
