Skyway closed Saturday for cycling event

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — One mode of transportation which is typically banned from Buffalo’s Skyway is going to rule the road for a time.

For the second time ever, bicyclists will get to travel the Buffalo Skyway during an event called SkyRide. The event is a bicycle tour of historic locations throughout the city and to promote bike infrastructure throughout Buffalo. The event is sponsored by Independent Health and M&T Bank.

The Skyway will be closed from 8 a.m. through 11 a.m. and a detour will be posted to help traffic navigate the change.
