What To Expect: Ride Season 2022

The 2022 Ride for Roswell is Saturday, June 25 at the University at Buffalo. But that’s just one of the many exciting things we have happening this Ride season!

When you make the decision to be part of the Ride community, you are committing to making a difference in the lives of cancer patients. This year, we have eight routes all starting and ending at the University at Buffalo.* Routes for riders of all ages and skill levels include:

  • 3-mile family fun
  • 10-mile river route
  • 20-mile river route
  • 30-mile river route
  • 34-mile country route
  • 45-mile country route
  • 65-mile country route
  • 100-mile country route

Find out more about the routes here.

Ride Day will be filled with everything you need to celebrate and remember those in your life who have been touched by cancer. From team tents to food from Tops Friendly Markets to finish line cheering — we can’t wait to see you!

Riders also have the option to customize their Ride experience through Ride Your Own Way. You are in control of your Ride! It can be one day or every weekend, 5 or 45 miles, on a road or a stationary bike at home — whatever works for you or your team! All that matters is you’ll be fundraising and making a difference for cancer patients.

But that’s not all. Here’s what else you can look forward to this year.

Monday, March 28 – Friday, April 1

Join us for a week of fun-filled fundraising challenges and activities to inspire the Ride community. Spirit week is a great time for riders to share their pride and get rewarded for their efforts. Stay tuned to your email and social media in March for more details.
