What is Slow Roll?
Founded in Detroit, Slow Roll is a group bicycle ride that meets every Monday night and has expanded into a Global network of community rides. In 2015, our chapter became a program of GObike Buffalo, an advocacy organization that champions bicycling as a means to lift our community. Each week we meet at different venues and take a unique route throughout the city, including all the major and minor neighborhoods that we are so proud of. Slow Roll is for everyone; all ages, all skill levels and every type of bike is welcome. Bicycle through Buffalo with over 1,000 of your new best friends! Our slow pace keeps the group safe and gives riders a unique perspective of our great city and its neighborhoods. Minors under 18 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
Slow Roll Code of Conduct
RESPECT for the community and SAFETY are paramount. If we cannot be respectful and safe, we can’t Slow Roll, simple as that. These basic rules will accomplish our goals and maintain a positive impression of not only Slow Roll, but of cycling as a whole. Make sure you’re following the Code of Conduct at all times and helping to educate new riders. You’ll have the full support of the SQUAD behind you, but it’s up to each of us to be responsible for ourselves and each other.
