But, the Slow Roll is back for their first ride tonight, beginning at Babeville at 6:30 .p.m. downtown.

The Slow Roll is free for participants, and the meeting place for this evening's ride is at 341 Delaware Avenue in Buffalo.

Some of the new regulations for this year include:

  • Staggered start times as required, this is to make sure groups of riders are 50 people or less per group.
  • The ride won't be round trip -- the end point isn't the same as the start.
  • There won't be scheduled stops along the ride, so this ride will be longer and faster paced than previous Slow Rolls.
  • When you arrive, you should arrive ready to ride.
  • There will be no police motorcade - riders will share the road with cars, so exercise caution.
  • Masks are mandatory for the duration of the ride.
  • There will be no after party.

As well, organizers mention you will not be allowed to participate "if you show any COVID-19 symptoms, if you tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days, or if you traveled from New York to any of the states on the state's travel advisory."
