*Snow* Roll XIII – Riding and Curling

Join us for our first *Snow* Roll of the season and debut at Buffalo Curling Club - food, drinks, fellowship, and curling! Meet at 12 - ride at 12:30 - curling 12-4 - register here for curling, 2 ends for $10 including instruction! Note from the Curling Club: "We request everyone to bring a clean pair of sneakers because dirt and salt are not friendly to curling ice - you bring clean sneakers and dress for 32-40F and we provide the rest! If someone does not have clean sneakers, we have a boot cleaner and will require participants to wear grippers (they go over shoes/boots)." Food from Fat Bob's Smokehouse, drinks from Flying Bison Brewing Company, Chateau Buffalo and more. Before the ride, get a free pair of light gloves from our presenting partner Independent Health. Also, as is *Snow* Roll custom, we're holding a donation drive for an organization especially in need this time of year - this time we're supporting Harvest House, which provides holistic support services to underserved and marginalized community members, and is currently seeking baby and children's needs: new socks; new underwear children's size 3 - 14/16; boys clothing size 5 to 14, especially pants; [...]

Virtual Slow Roll: Open Streets Ride

While the ongoing public health crisis is preventing us from bringing big crowds together for free and inclusive community bike rides, our Monday night gatherings have moved online - tune in here on our homepage as well as our YouTube channel and Facebook group for a Virtual Slow Roll. This week we’re teaming with GObike Buffalo to advocate for the City of Buffalo to adopt world-renowned open streets policies as part of our response to the pandemic; from GObike: "Since the start of COVID-19, cities around the world have recognized the need to widen sidewalks and open streets for people (view the list here). Solutions vary wildly but include temporary bicycle lanes, limiting access to residential streets, weekly car-free events, car-free loops, and many more. "If you agree we need to open our streets to create safe public spaces in every community, we encourage you to sign our pledge."

Upon conclusion of the ride, a virtual afterparty will feature live music and fellowship in partnership with Buffalo.fm and Band Together Buffalo. We will resume [...]
