The Peloton is for pre-qualified riders who raise $1,000 or more. Peloton participants must be at least 16 years old and complete a qualifying ride. The Peloton is a police-escorted bicycle procession that travels in a two-by-two formation from Roswell Park Cancer Institute to UB’s North Campus, passing some of Buffalo’s best known iconic landmarks, including Delaware Park and Frank Lloyd Wright’s Darwin Martin House. One of the highlights of the Peloton is riding across the finish line at UB as part of the Celebration of Hope!
