Join Slow Roll

Slow Roll is a free and inclusive Monday night community bike ride.  On Monday, May 16, the ride takes place in Hamlin Park! The 10-mile round-trip route has two stops, returning to Em Tea Cup Coffee Cafe for food, drinks, music and fellowship.

Meet at Em Tea Cup Coffee Cafe, 80 Oakgrove Ave. corner of Hughes Ave. for Slow Roll at 6:30 p.m.  Wear your Canisius gear!

Our 311 Ride will spotlight a city service Slow Roll squad uses along every route we ride, and show how everyday residents can help improve the state of our streets. “The City’s of Buffalo’s 311 Call and Resolution Center provides residents with fast, centralized access to city services.”   Learn more during the ride!
