    For Week 15 of 26 free and inclusive Monday night community bike rides, Slow Roll Buffalo returns to Delaware Park Buffalo, this time setting up at Parkside Lodge in partnership with the Parkside Community Association & Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy. 

    Like past rides from Delaware Park, this coming Monday's 10-mile roundtrip route will surround the Scajaquada Expressway, with a spotlight on the restorative advocacy of the Scajaquada Corridor Coalition & Restore Our Community Coalition - Buffalo, NY to force reconstruction of parkways-turned-highways by the New York State Department of Transportation. 

    Neighborhoods along the ride include Parkside, Hamlin Park, Park Meadow, Central Park and North Park along major streets Parkside, Main, Delavan, Delaware, Colvin, Amherst and Hertel, guided by our trained squad of more than 100 volunteers. Two “mass-up” stops allow for regrouping while community leaders inform riders of history, events and issues in the immediate area, with the African Heritage Food Co-op Kiddie Kickstand crew selling drinks and snacks for one dollar cash.

    We'll return to Parkside Lodge for an afterparty with fellowship, food, drinks and music. 

    Slow Roll Buffalo's mission is to connect communities across borders through free guided bike rides for all ages and skill levels. 

    One-time annual registration onsite and online at www.slowrollbuffalo.org, which also features our full schedule, merchandise, and weekly profiles of people, block clubs, businesses and community organizations included in each ride. 

    Slow Roll Buffalo is a program of GObike Buffalo and presented by Independent Health - by far the largest offshoot in the global Slow Roll network whose homebase is Detroit, where thousands have been gathering for Monday rides for many years; other cities include Cleveland, Chicago, Berlin & Stockholm. Both the leisurely pace and dedicated squad of volunteers enable a safe and social scene in which participants of all ages and skill levels ride 10 miles roundtrip around the city, each week a new host site round-trip route.
