GObike Buffalo | May 19, 2019, 9 am
PRESENTED BY INDEPENDENT HEALTH
For the sixth year, GObike Buffalo will be hosting the SkyRide, our signature bike ride providing riders the opportunity to explore the past, present and future of Buffalo’s roadways through a bike ride highlighting our legacy highways—the Skyway, Scajaquada Expressway, and Kensington Expressway—built atop our Olmsted Parks System, Scajaquada Creek and our waterfront.
The event will be held on Sunday, May 19, at 9 am, starting in LaSalle Park—soon to be renamed the Ralph C. Wilson Centennial Park in honor of the recent $100 million legacy gift from the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation to develop a signature park, advance the vision of a completed regional trail system and support sustainability of these public spaces.
New this year:
SkyRide is GObike Buffalo’s annual event and fundraiser, bringing thousands of cyclists on a city-wide tour of historic locations, highway infrastructure and new bicycle facilities. Riders experience the scenic views of downtown Buffalo and the waterfront from the 100-foot-high Skyway and Olmsted’s parks and parkways by bicycle. The event is presented by Independent Health with support from M&T Bank.
Through the SkyRide, GObike aims to give people the opportunity to experience Buffalo’s roadways in a way they never have before, and to re-imagine the city and how we navigate through it. GObike believes that by engaging our city’s many communities and stakeholders in a conversation about the future of our roadways, we can move toward a transportation system that improves health, safety and quality of life for everyone.
