The Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus is once again celebrating Bike To Work Day on May 21. And there’s no better place to celebrate than right here in Buffalo!
Biking is big in Buffalo Niagara – both as transportation and for recreation.
The City of Buffalo alone has nearly 150 miles of bike lanes and the broader region as a whole is extremely bike friendly, with casual waterfront rides, more mountainous trails, and everything in between. One of the most comprehensive networks is the popular Niagara River Greenway Trail – a blend of urban, waterfront, naturalized, and suburban paved pathways.
There are also many community-based organizations and private investment and support into making Buffalo even more bike friendly, improving bike infrastructure and investing in further growth.
"Being a 10-minute bike ride from work has improved my happiness significantly," said Sean DeClerq, who relocated to Buffalo from Boulder, Colorado. You can read his relocation story here.
