All are welcome to join Slow Roll Buffalo's Season Opening Ride, starting from the Electric Tower downtown on a 10-mile ride including major streets Huron, Main, Delavan and Genesee, guided by our squad of more than 100 trained volunteers and returning for an afterparty at Big Ditch Brewing Company.
Slow Roll! Ready to roll out the 2018 season with us? Here's our Spot Map for May 7's season opener at The Electric Tower. We'll stage on Genesee Street (kiddies and joyriders in the very front as usual), with merchandise and registration tables nearby. The afterparty will be handled by the amazing folks at Big Ditch brewing, and DJ's Shane and Tone will most certainly be keeping us in motion on the dance floor with the funkiest vinyl records! The Electric Tower parking lot will hold our bike racks for safe keeping - for those that arrive by motor vehicle, we suggest parking in any of the many downtown parking ramps and lots and biking a couple blocks in. See you all Monday, meet at 530pm, ride at 630pm!
