A ghoulishly-guided 31-mile roundtrip ride along with a Chiavetta’s dinner and stops for treats from Community Beer Works followed by a socially distanced afterparty, all for a $31 donation to Slow Roll Buffalo. The ride will begin at 2pm from Undergrounds Coffeehouse, with dinners served from 4-8pm. Anyone can also choose a Chiavetta’s chicken dinner-only option available for a donation of $13.
Reopening Slow Roll requires working within the current Phase 4 of “New York Forward” state mandate, including a limit on public gatherings to a maximum of 50 people, along with CDC guidelines for events to “consider ways to significantly reduce the number of attendees”; in turn, organizers have reimagined the ride with the following changes:
– Staggered start times as required, ensuring that attendees ride in groups of 50 or less
– The ride will end in a different location than it began, not roundtrip
– Pace and distance faster and longer than usual, with no scheduled stops for regrouping and speakers
– The ride will be self-supported, with no “SAG” support and gear before or during
– Participants and their bikes should be prepared to ride immediately upon arrival, and maintain safe distance from those outside of their own household while waiting to ride
– No police motorcade – riders will share the road
– Mandatory covering of mouth and nose for the entirety of the ride
– All measures subject to change as part of continued commitment to public safety and consultation with public health leaders
Those unable to participate include anyone showing symptoms of (coughing, shortness of breath, fever of over 100.4), a positive test for, recently exposed (within 14 days) to COVID-19, or within the 14-day quarantine requirement after traveling to New York from states with significant community spread – please see the NYS Travel Restriction website for a current list of affected states.
