MVP Health Care Slow Ride Bicycle Series


What's the Slow Ride?

This summer, join us for the MVP Health Care Slow Ride- a series of four FREE, on-street community bicycle rides that showcase each of our beautiful quadrants. The Slow Ride is an all-ages, all-skill level ride that lasts about one hour. 

The City is teaming up with the community ride pros at Conkey Cruisers to produce this series. In addition, the rides are also supported by Reconnect Rochester, R Community Bikes, the Rochester Cycling Alliance, and Full Moon Vista. Get outside, get on a bike, and let's get rolling through the Roc!
