Our next ROC ‘n Roll is Saturday, June 3 — World Bicycle Day!

The ROC ‘n Roll is a community bike ride to help fuel Reconnect Rochester’s work to champion transportation choices in Rochester.

Check-in begins at 10:30am. If you’re doing the short ride leaving at noon, feel free to come closer to 11:30am!


Who’s welcome at this event?

All types of rollers and riders! We plan two routes to accommodate a variety of folks: a short family-friendly/casual rider version and a long ride for the enthusiasts.

  • The 8-mile ride features the traffic-free Canalway Trail, Highland Crossing Trail, and Riverway Trail.
  • The 33-mile ride is a mix of road cycling, bike paths, and bike boulevards — and will probably take you places you’ve never seen in Rochester on a bike!

Where’s it happening? The 2023 ROC ‘n Roll will begin and end at Genesee Valley Park’s Hawthorne Shelter.

When’s it happening? Saturday, June 3!

  • 10:30am: Check-in begins
  • 10:30am-12:00pm: Mingling, snacking and checking out community and bike organization tables

  • 12:00pm: 8-mile ride takes off

Stay after the ride for some hydration and light refreshments!
