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 continuing our Memorial Day tradition of partnering with the Buffalo and Erie County Naval and Military Park, which receives 98% of its revenue from tourism – we’ll share ways to support the park while honoring those who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation, including a virtual tour of the park and a ride to memorials around Buffalo.
For the virtual tour and ride, only two Slow Roll squad members will be riding – one with a camera mounted to their helmet, another trailing for technical support – 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.
