UB joins Slow Roll on Oct. 1

Published September 23, 2016

The Slow Roll movement is coming to UB on Oct. 1, thanks to a collaboration between the Professional Staff Senate, Slow Roll Buffalo and GoBike Buffalo.

The UB Bike Stampede and Pedal Party is free and open to all members of the UB community and residents of the neighborhoods surrounding and between the North and South campuses.

The event begins with riders lining up at 10 a.m. in the Townsend Lot on the South Campus. At 11 a.m., riders will roll out to loop around the South Campus and proceed through Amherst to the North Campus. Once on the North Campus, riders will travel around the iconic bull statue in front of the Center of the Arts and past the Solar Strand, then continue back to the South Campus, where an after-party will be held. The party will feature music, food trucks and opportunities to meet with UB, local government and neighborhood representatives.

The event is presented by the PSS Sustainable Living Committee’s Subcommittee on Alternative Transportation with support from United University Professions, Parking and Transportation, UB Sustainability, the Office of Special Events, University Police and the Town of Amherst.
