The SkyRide 2015

Hands down, one of the biggest victories for GObike Buffalo was pulling off the SkyRide in 2014. Never did anyone think that the organization would actually pull off such a feat. Not only did GObike manage to get ‘the go ahead’ to allow cyclists to traverse The Skyway, the community also stepped up to participate in the wondrous undertaking.

All told, 900 riders took to the skies to show their support for the Buffalo cycling movement. After a 29-mile ride throughout the city, the elevated roadway was shut down to traffic and opened to those solely utilizing pedal power.

The SkyRide is set to commence once again in 2015. On May 30, cyclists will once again set out on a ride that will take them on a sightseeing adventure throughout the city, before embarking upon the magnificent climb that carries them up and over the city’s waterfront.

This year there will be more riders, more fun, and more advocacy to impart.
