Why we ride.

Every day, people all over the world are diagnosed with cancer. Participating in the Peloton on Friday, June 24, is a great way to honor those patients and show dedication to their fight.

One of the most impactful moments of Ride Weekend is watching the Peloton ride into the Celebration of Hope. Following a moving tribute to the patients at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, this police-escorted, 12-mile bicycle procession travels in a two-by-two formation from Roswell Park to the University at Buffalo’s North Campus. The Peloton carries the spirit of our community as it kicks off the Celebration of Hope and the Ride for Roswell.
