Utica, NY (WIBX) - Wheels will spin quietly on Wednesday night as the Ride of Silence takes place in Utica.

Departing from the New Hartford Rec Center at 7:00pm, cyclists will ride for ten minutes in complete silence in honor of those who have been killed in accidents with motor vehicles.

The Ride of Silence is held annually worldwide and is being held just two days before the Ride for Missing Children. Although the events are organized independently of one another, many cyclists are expected to participate in both rides this week.
