When, where, and how to join

LANSING — Eric Snider loved to ride his bike. In a given year, he would clock five to six thousand miles, his daughter Jayne remembers him.

His daily commute to his job as assistant dean of academic affairs at Lansing Community College was so beloved that his family couldn’t keep him off the bike after a 2013 collision.

He later died on that same commute in 2016, struck from behind by a pickup truck.

To memorialize riders like Snider killed or injured by motor vehicles, an expected 200 cyclists from Greater Lansing will attend the region’s 15th annual Ride of Silence, one of more than 300 rides across the world scheduled for May 18. Jayne, who lives in Holt, will ride for the fifth year in her dad’s honor.
