Summer is almost here and that means Slow Roll Buffalo is BACK with a full schedule of free, community-focused bike rides through Buffalo and beyond. If you’re new to Slow Roll or Slow Roll is new to you, it’s a free and inclusive Monday night bike ride that is open to all ages and skill levels. It’s not just happening in Buffalo, it’s actually part of a global network of community rides originally started in Detroit and the Buffalo version has become one of the largest community bike rides in the country according to


The weekly ride is guided by a group of over 100 volunteers who are trained cyclists and each trip goes for about 10 miles roundtrip. All bikes are welcome except for gas-guzzlers and training wheels – participants range in age from 0-96. Every ride ends with an after-party with food, drinks, and music at the same place you started, which is different every single week. The pace is around 8 – 10 MPH at the front of the ride (recommended for juniors and joyriders) and gets faster the further back in the pack you go. For a list of tips and guidelines, check out the Slow Roll Code of Conduct.
