Slow Roll St. Paul

Slow Roll St. Paul’s purpose is to highlight our amazing and vibrant communities within St. Paul. We aim to accomplish this through biweekly community rides held at different locations during the months of June through September.


Founded in Detroit in 2010, Slow Roll is a fun, safe, and inclusive bike ride for people of all ages and skill levels.

The goal of Slow Roll St. Paul is to highlight our vibrant community by bringing people together through biweekly community bicycle rides. Our purpose is to create community spaces within Saint Paul that uplift the people reflected in our neighborhoods, incorporating the arts and cultures of black, brown, indigenous, people of color, and building with both bike organizations, non-bike organizations, and local businesses.

Everyone is welcome at Slow Roll St. Paul as we practice creating safer spaces. We do not support, nor will we tolerate, any bigoted remarks or actions. Racism, sexism, xenophobia, Islamophobia, ableism, ageism, homophobia, and transphobia are not welcome here. We reserve the right to ask anyone to leave Slow Roll if they chose to not follow our guidelines and refuse to follow the safe space policies.

We take it slow so that there’s never any pressure to keep up and so there’s plenty of time to meet other riders and see our city. This is a no-drop ride, meaning no one will be left behind. People of all ages and skill levels are welcome! So grab your bike and come out for a slow ride with us as we celebrate everything that makes St. Paul a great place to live!

Slow Roll St. Paul rides are a collaborative effort between Cycles for Change, Saint Paul Women on Bikes, Saint Paul Smart-Trips & Transit For Livable Communities.
