Our next livestream virtual ride will be cohosted by Cariol Horne, who started riding with us in 2017 to share her story – in 2006, Cariol was fired from the Buffalo Police Department for intervening in a fellow officer’s choking of Neal Mack. With Cariol as our guide, we’ll ride streets of her upbringing and career while advocating for both Cariol’s Law and restoration of her pension.
Cariol’s Law is a proposal for legislation to have a mandatory stature on police bystander intervention, provide protection from retaliation, require external investigation with mandated reprimanding for abuse or misconduct, and create a required reportable registry.

While the ongoing public health crisis is preventing Slow Roll Buffalo from bringing big crowds together for free and inclusive community bike rides, our Monday night gatherings have moved online.
For the virtual tour and ride, one Slow Roll squad member will ride 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 in partnership with Buffalo.fm and Band Together Buffalo.
We will resume public group rides when public health leaders advise.
2020 marks Slow Roll Buffalo’s seventh year of presenting free and inclusive community bike rides, rolling every Monday from May through October. Presented in partnership with Independent Health by the nonprofit volunteers of Wheel B. Herd, Slow Roll Buffalo is the largest franchise of the Slow Roll movement born in Detroit.
