If you’ve never done SkyRide, or it’s been a while, this is the year to come back! Our theme is “Building a New Buffalo Legacy.” Closing down the Skyway to cars so that bikers may ride freely, safely, and happily without fear is part of that theme. That feeling of stress-free, safe riding is what we’re chasing when we push for more protected lanes, trails and paths in our area municipalities.

We’ll celebrate the progress we’ve made in advancing accessibility and safety for walkers, bikers, wheelchair and transit users, and we’ll renew our call for more. Projects like Niagara Street are just the beginning. Our region is at a tipping point. On Sunday August 14, let’s all push it in the right direction together.
