Ride For Roswell to hold Peloton, torch lighting in August

The Ride For Roswell is bringing back The Peloton and torch lighting, after it was cancelled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — The Ride For Roswell is bringing back The Peloton and torch lighting, after it was cancelled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Riders will be leaving Roswell Park Friday, August 6 and riding to the University at Buffalo’s North Campus for the Celebration of Hope.

“The lighting of the torch represents a symbol of hope. It represents the hope of cancer patients and survivors, the compassion of Roswell Park nurses, doctors and caregivers; and the brilliance of Roswell Park researchers and scientists,” explains Chris Eberle, cancer survivor, Ride volunteer and creator of the Ride Torch. “The Celebration of Hope brings together the Ride community to honor and commemorate all who are affected by cancer, and to support and recognize the groundbreaking research at Roswell Park that saves people like me.”

The Annual Ride for Roswell will be held Saturday, August 7. Registration is still open and this year there are two ways to participate.  This year's Ride will take place at five locations across Western New York for socially distant and safe group rides.  You can also ride your own way and create your own route and ride anytime throughout the month of August.
