See our city like never before

SkyRide is GObike Buffalo’s annual event and fundraiser, bringing thousands of cyclists on a city-wide tour of historic locations, highway infrastructure and new bicycle facilities. Riders experience the scenic views of downtown Buffalo and the waterfront from the 100-foot-high Skyway and Olmsted’s parks and parkways by bicycle. ​

Our signature bike ride provides riders the opportunity to explore the past, present and future of Buffalo’s roadways through a route highlighting legacy highways built on the Olmsted Parks System, Scajaquada Creek and our waterfront—the Skyway, Scajaquada Expressway, and Kensington Expressway.

We believe by engaging our city’s many communities and stakeholders in a conversation about the future of our roadways, we can move toward a transportation system that improves health, safety and quality of life for everyone.
