Host profile – Richardson Olmsted Campus

Tonight’s 10-mile roundtrip route includes stops in Black Rock and Military; neighborhoods on this route include Forest and Grant-Ferry along major streets Grant, Ferry, Forest, Tonawanda, Amherst, Military, Hertel and Elmwood.

Tonight’s ride is named for the just-announced Grant Street revitalization project spurred by state funding, and boosted by a grant from The John R. Oishei Foundation along with investment from Niagara District Council Member David Rivera for GObike Buffalo and Preservation Buffalo Niagara to provide an infrastructure and traffic analysis, an analysis of commercial and community assets as well as provide technical assistance for property owners.  

Buffalocal afterparty beside the barn on the Richardson Olmsted Campus will include fellowship; food from Imperial Pizza, Ms Judi’s, Totally Edible, Souped Up and Sweet Melody’s; drinks from Buffalocal brews, Chateau Buffalo wines, Snowy Owl Kombucha, Libby’s Lemonade Stand, Ashker’s and more; and music from DJ Muah.

One-time annual ride registration here online or onsite.

All riders be sure to check your ABCs – Air-Brakes-Chain – and see our SAG crew (Support and Gear) for any pre-ride basic maintenance.
