5-mile River Route
This recreational loop on the UB and Amherst bike paths runs along Ellicott Creek and through the woods, with no car traffic to worry about.
20-mile River Route
Follow Ellicott Creek and the Niagara River to beautiful Niawanda Park, then back through the City of Tonawanda. You’ll see the Niagara River at one of its widest points while you ride flat roads and bike paths on the bed of the original Erie Canal.
30-mile River Route
Ride along roads and bike paths beside Ellicott Creek and the Niagara River through Niawanda Park and Isle View Park. Return on the Two Mile Creek bike path through the City and Town of Tonawanda, then through Ellicott Creek Park back to UB North.
No matter which route you choose, we’re all pedaling passionately for the same purpose — to end cancer.
For all routes, participants ages 1-17 must ride with riders 18+. Children under 12 months cannot participate.
Interested in the Canada Route?
Here’s what you need to know:
Canada Route riders should plan to check in on Thursday, June 22 or Friday, June 23 at the University at Buffalo, North Campus. This is where you can claim your rewards and receive your bib and Canada Route sticker.
Day of Ride.

Crossing the border.
Secure border crossing documents and prescreening are required. Here’s a reminder of what you will need with you on Ride Day:
We encourage Canada Route riders to be dropped off at Roswell Park on Saturday morning and picked up at UB after the Ride. This gives you an opportunity to enjoy all of the Ride Weekend festivities.
You can park your car all day on Saturday at Roswell Park. There will be a shuttle (for people only, no bikes) from UB to Roswell Park after your ride. We will provide secure bike parking available at UB while you ride the shuttle to Roswell Park to pick up your car.
