Slow Roll Buffalo’s Parkway Revival Ride

Community bike ride to reconnect the City of Good Neighbors

When it comes to Slow Rolls, today’s is one of the most significant. That’s because this Slow Roll highlights the need for traffic calming when it comes to Buffalo’s urban expressways.

In recent years, there has been public outcry to restore our parkways, which have been replaced over the years with high speed freeways.

Incredibly, the NYS Department of Transportation (DOT) continues to rebuild these highways much in the same vein as those prescribed by Robert Moses. But the fight is on, thanks to the countless number of urban activists who refuse to see another tragic transportation mistake made at the hands of those who choose cars over community.

Today’s ten mile ride will travel throughout neighborhoods that have been adversely affected by neighboring freeways Kensington and Scajaquada – both are deemed “Freeways Without Futures“. The neighborhoods include Park Meadow, Parkside, Hamlin Park, Kingsley, Fruit Belt, Masten Park, Cold Springs, and Elmwood Village along major roads Elmwood, Amherst, Parkside, Humboldt, Best, Masten, Lafayette, and Delaware.
