Virtual Solidarity Roll

While the ongoing public health crisis is preventing us from presenting our free and inclusive community bike rides that draw crowds in the thousands, our Monday night gatherings have moved online. This week we're partnering with PUSH Buffalo for a Virtual Solidarity Roll - stay tuned to our news section for many ways to get involved between now and Monday night. Come Monday, starting at 6:30pm here at www.slowrollbuffalo.org as well as our YouTube and Facebook pages, we'll present a live virtual ride guided by hosts and guests, who will share news and stories of how Buffalonians are responding to the crisis. Only one Slow Roll squad member will be riding - a *Solo* Roll of sorts, with a camera mounted to their helmet - while hosts and guests will appear from home via teleconference. Upon conclusion of the ride, a virtual afterparty will feature live music and fellowship. Thanks to our presenting partner Independent Health for its continued support since 2015.
