About:

Slow Roll St. Paul’s purpose was to highlight the amazing and vibrant communities within St. Paul. We aimed to accomplish this through biweekly community rides held at different locations during the summer bike season months.

Story:

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. Slow Roll St. Paul creates community spaces that uplift the people reflected in St. Paul neighborhoods; incorporates the arts and cultures of Black, Indigenous, and people of color; and collaborates with 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 St. Paul if they chose to not follow our guidelines or refuse to follow the safe space policies.

Our rides take it slow so there’s never any pressure to keep up and there’s plenty of time to meet other riders and see the city of St. Paul. Rides are “no-drop,” which means 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 were a collaborative effort between Cycles for Change and Move Minnesota.
