What is a Slow Roll?
A typical Detroit Slow Roll
My first experience with a Slow Roll was listening to one of the founders of the Detroit Slow Roll talk about it.
“In 2010 Jason and Mike thought it would be cool to do a leisurely bike ride for all age groups through a different neighbourhood every week. What started with two people and a few friends has turned into a ride of hundreds and then thousands of people exploring neighbourhoods they might not have ever been through.”
Downtown Slow Roll Eagle Place Slow Roll Light The Night Slow Roll
I thought this was an awesome idea we started doing it in Brantford in 2021. This year it will be the first and third Tuesday night of each month meeting at 6:45 and rolling at 7PM. The first Saturday of every month will be a Slow Roll ride led by VINTAGE & CRUISER bikes. The last Saturday of each month will be our LIGHT THE NIGHT ride. Watch for time change as we usually leave just before dusk.
Each ride will explore a different neighbourhood in Brantford. I hope you’ll join us! Bring your bike and your friends. Please be sure your bike is ready to ride.
These are easy rides, a slow roll. Ride routes are subject to change.
Riders must register through here for SLOW ROLLS and here for LIGHT THE NIGHT and here for CRUISER & VINTAGE rides.
This helps us know if we need additional volunteers to do the ride safely. Please sign up!

Jason and Mike have registration and a waiver for their bike ride so we do too. To help us start the ride on time, please complete this on-line registration and event waiver before coming to the ride. Thank you!
This event is free to the public as Heron Head Bikes pays the insurance for the event. The insurance company requires all riders to register so we know who you are in case of an emergency. Like many things in life, riding your bike does involved some risk. You are responsible for your bike and yourself. It’s going to be great.
