In the News: Justin Booth, '00

Posted: August 6, 2014

Justin Booth, '00, is leading a bicycle revolution in Buffalo. Booth, who graduated from Buffalo State with a degree in health and wellness, is the executive director of GO Bike Buffalo, an organization dedicated to promoting the health and environmental benefits of bicycle riding.

GO Bike Buffalo hosts workshops, recycling events, and awareness meetings to “create healthy, environmentally sustainable, community-friendly transportation options in the City of Buffalo.”

At a recent GO Bike event, Booth led some 750 cyclists over the Skyway—a 1.4-mile long, 110-foot-high expressway bridge--on a 29-mile ride the included stops at local parks, architectural sites, and landmarks.  

"It's about getting people out there, being healthy as part of their daily routines,” Booth told Time Warner Cable News. “It's good for the environment, good for your health, good for the economy.”

Booth has stated that fostering Buffalo’s cycling culture is yet another way to invigorate and revitalize the city. Little wonder then, that Booth was recently named one of the Buffalo News’ “Outstanding Citizens of 2013.”
