It's another sign warmer weather is here to stay: Slow Roll Buffalo's weekly rides through city neighborhoods start on Monday, May 7.
The season-opening ride starts at the Electric Tower on Washington Street. Cyclists will meet there at 5:30 p.m. The ride leaves from the Electric Tower at 6:30. Drivers should be prepared for a traffic impact on Huron, Main, East Delavan and Genesee Streets. The ride ends with an after-party at Big Ditch Brewing Company. It will run about 10 miles.
The rides take cyclists of all ability levels on a tour of historic Buffalo sites and cultural landmarks. They are planned for every Monday through October 29.
Slow Roll Buffalo is a chapter of a global network of community rides that started in Detroit. Buffalo's chapter took its first rides back in 2014. There are Slow Roll chapters in major cities including Chicago, Washington, D.C., and Berlin.
