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.


Fear not, you can still Roll with us! Come by the Hawthorne Shelter at Genesee Valley Park on Sunday morning for same-day registration.

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 Canalway Trail, Highland Crossing Trail, and Genesee Riverway Trail.
  • The 33-mile ride is a mix of road cycling, bike paths, and bike boulevards!*

*The 33-mile ride is self-supported with no escort.
