COVID-19 has brought the cancellation of several annual summer group activities and festivals. Tonight in Buffalo, one of them is making its socially distant return. Slow Roll has created a “Reimagined Ride” for bicyclists looking to ride as a group.

Slow Roll Buffalo is adapting its mission of connecting the community through bikes to work around COVID-19. They are connecting bike couriers to help make important deliveries and are sharing safe, socially distant bike routes for those looking to ride safely. WBFO’s Nick Lippa joined Slow Roll Community Organizer Seamus Gallivan on a delivery route, as he’s been checking in with community members along the way to see how they are doing.

Hundreds of bicyclists took part in the first Slow Roll of the season Monday.

It's best-known for the massive crowds it attracts during the Easter season, but the Broadway Market continues to attract customers throughout the year. The city-owned facility has evolved throughout its history, reflecting Buffalo's changing cultural landscape.

Slow Roll Buffalo returns Monday evening with a new season of bicycle rides through the city's diverse neighborhoods.

At this time of year, riding through the streets of Buffalo on two wheels can be harrowing even to think about. But for many Buffalonians, it’s a way of life no matter what the season.
