Haunted Buffalo Ride


A spooktakular history bike tour recalling five ghastly deaths.

Today, Buffalo Bike Tours announces a special one-day-only tour unlike anything Buffalo has ever seen – the “Haunted Buffalo Ride” on October 26th. The bike ride will feature original songs and some of the most colorful and spookiest stories in Buffalo history. 


“Buffalo Bike Tours is proud to offer this family-friendly event – and a completely original production to end our first full season.” said Buffalo Bike Tours owner, Marc Moscato. 


The tour will present a fresh take on local history by recalling 5 ghastly deaths along the route including:

  • The legend of John Maynard, Buffalo’s heroic sea captain 
  • Margaret St John, the lone survivor of the War of 1812
  • The gory murder of mafia boss John Cammilleri Plenty of suspense and surprises along the way

“Every city has a ghost tour – but I don’t know of any exactly like this”, said Dan Regan, co-creator of the Haunted Buffalo Ride. “To bring these stories to life – this will be a truly special event”.


The tour celebrates the end of Buffalo Bike Tours’ first full year– one in which it grew to be Buffalo’s #1 Tour on TripAdvisor. The company hosted more than 750 riders from around the world and in June opened a kiosk at Canalside – a relationship it looks to build upon with expanded tours and rentals in 2020.


“It’s been a great season and has far exceeded my expectations”, said Moscato. “We have a great bike community – and the city has long been overdue for a bike-tour operator. We are proud to promote bicycling in Buffalo and to celebrate our city with cool community bike events like the Haunted Buffalo Ride”. 


The Haunted Buffalo Ride will meet at Hostel Buffalo Niagara (667 Main Street) and travel approximately 5 miles, ending at the Gypsy Parlor (376 Grant St), where guests are welcome to join for food and an open bar, with a portion of proceeds from the night going towards expanding the company’s fleet of bikes with an emphasis on kids and women’s bikes.


Limited tickets ($25) are available on the company’s website, buffalobiketours.com/hauntedbuffaloride, and bikes are available for rent. To request an interview, or for questions and images, see the contact info listed above.
