Buffalo Joins the “Slow Roll” Movement

Deep Thinka and The Good Neighborhood are teaming up to create a cycling event like no other. It’s called “Slow Roll”, which essentially means that participants get together for a group ride and cruise around the city before ending up at the exact place where they started – HandleBar on Swan Street.

HandleBar (the pub at the hub) will be open soon enough, and once it does it will become an epicenter for cyclists in the city (see Facebook). In order to pay tribute to cyclists all over the region, the plan is to organize the “Slow Roll” so that cyclists can get to know each other while learning about the city.

“It’s called “Slow Roll” and it’s basically an urban bike ride that starts and ends at the same location,” says Jacquie Krajnik,
New Media Director at Deep Thinka Records. “The ride takes on a slow pace to open it up to anyone that would want to participate, adults, children, entire families, etc. The “Slow Roll” originated in Detroit (see here) and has already expanded to Cleveland, Sweden, and Iraq.”
