Slow Roll Buffalo holds 1st ride of the season

Slow Roll Buffalo Kicks Off 2017 Season

BUFFALO, N.Y. – After a start date delayed by severe weather least week, Slow Roll Buffalo is underway for the season. 
 
The annual community bike ride program kicked off Monday night on the city’s East Side. 
 
Slow Roll Buffalo Co-Founder, Seamus Gallivan, says that riders are usually happy to ride in all types of weather, but not the kind of weather we had last week.
 
“We ride in rain, we ride in snow, but we will not ride in a tornado," he said. "There was a Tornado Watch and that called it off.”
 
The annual riding program takes riders throughout Buffalo and the surrounding communities. Gallivan shares that they will be partnering with more members of the community, depending on the location of the weekly ride, to assist in events leading up to and after the ride. 
 
Gallivan also told 2-On-Your-Side what changes have been made to the ride that community members and riders can expect this year. 
 
“I think the biggest adjustment this year is stopping for NFTA buses. We’ve always been willing to do it and we are just now more able, partnering with the Buffalo Police Department to make sure we do it properly.”
 
Slow Roll Buffalo meets every Monday night beginning in May until October. To learn how to become a part of the riding group or get more information on Slow Roll Buffalo, you can check out their website, https://slowrollbuffalo.org/.
