Another Slow Roll Buffalo took place Monday night, after the event caused some controversy last week.

There were once again thousands of riders, but not nearly as many complaints from Buffalo residents.  Organizers said they made some changes, and provided a more specific route in advance to help drivers prepare.

The founder says the group is working on making the ride better for everyone.

"This is a big event that affects a lot of people whether or not they're participating. It's impossible to please everybody but we'll continue to listen to the concerns of the community as long as they're raised in a constructive, respectful manner," explained Seamus Gallivan.

The group caused some controversy last week when it blocked traffic outside Buffalo General Hospital. Gallivan says the Buffalo Police pre-approved that route.
