BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) — Slow Roll Buffalo closed it's most unusual 7th season Saturday with a Halloween themed ride and fundraiser.

Biketober ended with the very first All Potholes Eve Pedal Party.

The 31 mile guided tour of Buffalo began at Undergrounds Coffeehouse and Roastery on South Park Avenue.

It included a stop for beer and treats at Community Beer Works, followed by a Chiavetta's chicken dinner at the end of the race.

Participants paid a donation to take part in the socially distant festivities.

Co-founder Seamus Gallivan said, "Slow Roll Buffalo became our own stand alone non profit organization in 2020. Two weeks before the shutdown. So it has been a lean hard year, but this is just a little way to keep it going and help sustain us through the winter as we prepare to build staff and put on a full slate of rides in 2021."

A virtual after party included ride highlights, music, auctions and raffles.

It was all streamed live on Slow Roll's social media channels.
