THE PELOTON

IMPACTFUL

One of the most impactful moments of Ride Weekend is watching the Peloton ride into the Celebration of Hope. This police-escorted, 12-mile bicycle procession travels in a two-by-two formation from Downtown Buffalo to University at Buffalo’s North Campus.

MEMORABLE

Following a moving tribute to the patients at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, the Peloton departs from the front of the hospital and journeys to 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 is greeted by a cheering crowd of patients, survivors, doctors, nurses, riders, volunteers, sponsors and more.
