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. People riding through a neighbourhood they may never have been in but knew was part of their city.

“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.”

I thought this was an awesome idea and want to bring it to Brantford.

Each week, we will explore a different neighbourhood in Brantford and Brant County. I hope you’ll join us! Bring your bike and your friends. Please be sure your bike is ready to ride.

Happy trails!

    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. Each time you register for a ride, your name will be entered into a draw sponsored by TK Liquidation for an iGo e-bike. 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.
