The Peloton

The Friday night Peloton is a police-escorted, 12-mile bicycle procession that travels in a two-by-two formation. This ride begins with a moving tribute to the patients at Roswell Park Cancer Institute and ends at UB’s North Campus, passing some of Buffalo’s best-known iconic landmarks, including Delaware Park and Frank Lloyd Wright’s Darwin Martin House. Upon arrival at UB, the Peloton concludes with an exciting and emotional entrance into the Celebration of Hope amongst a cheering crowd.

Please note: Peloton spots are not secured until riders have raised the $1,000 fundraising minimum. Space is limited.
