Roll Out Crew Solidarity Ride (Sunday Feb 19)

Roll Out Crew reached out and is hosting a ride in solidarity with the victims of the attacks. The goal of the ride is to show support and unite as one bike community. The ride is this Sunday (Feb 19) at West Oakland BART, meeting at 11am and departing at 1pm.

This is different from regular bike party rides. Truckie of ROC will be escorting the rear of the ride with his truck for safety and to help any bikes that break down, and will also have water and snacks. ROC regularly hosts bike events and rides for the Oakland community. There is a planned route with frequent, short stops:

Ride with GPS:

ROC provided the following rules:

  • Wear Your Helmet
  • Ride the in Right Lane
  • Respect the People & Property

Riders may cork intersections to keep the ride safe together as a single group.

As many of you have already heard, there were multiple instances of a group of people using stolen cars to attack Bike Party attendees and other people biking in the East Bay. Members of our community were intentionally doored at speed while they rode their bikes peacefully. The victims suffered varying degrees of injury, and two people were seriously injured and had to be taken to the hospital.

Make no mistake — these were violent, targeted attacks with cars used as literal weapons. Last night was another frightening reminder that local governments must take immediate action to make the streets safe for everyone.

We can say so much about the emotions going through our hearts right now but our largest concern are the victims. We’ll do everything we can to support them as they recover from the physical and emotional trauma inflicted on them.

It’s more important than ever that we foster the things that make our community strong. Let’s take care of each other. Let’s stay close and connected. Let’s turn the anger and sadness we’re feeling right now into a force for change so we can make sure this never happens again.

For more information on the attacks see the Oaklandside article here. We are also maintaining this summary document. Please note the content is upsetting. If you have any more information email and contact the police as well.
