This Saturday, June 9th, come up to Riverside to participate in the 3rd Annual Ride Along the Waterfront at Black Rock Canal Park. This year's event includes the popular 3 mile kayak/canoe paddle, 14 mile non-competitive bike ride, and wellness fair as in years past. New this year, Petworks will be on hand with their agility dogs and Buster Bison will be in appearance to entertain the kid in all of us.
Ride Along the Waterfront begins at 9:00am with the kayak/canoe paddle from the boat launch at Black Rock Canal Park to the foot of Sheridan Drive and back along the curve of the Niagara River. 11:00am brings the bike ride which this year will include a poker run, best hands will win prizes. The bike ride follows the Riverwalk from Black Rock Canal Park to Lasalle Park and back. The wellness fair will take place from 9:00 - 1:00, so stop by at any time before, during, or after any of the events.
Those interested in participating can do so for both events, an individual event, or can just stop by and check out the wellness fair. Ride Along the Waterfront is a free event, open to all. Participants can register day of the event.
Ride Along the Waterfront is a yearly event based out of Black Rock Canal Park. It exists to encourage Buffalonians to get out and experience all that our waterfront has to offer and to bring awareness to Black Rock Canal Park and the improvements to the park that will begin later this summer.
