Mission & Vision Statements



We are an inclusive group of people and organizations working to make cycling in Winnipeg a safe, enjoyable, accessible, and convenient transportation choice year-round.


We envision a city where every road is safe for cycling, all bike paths are connected, and riding a bike is commonplace and always fun.



Bike Winnipeg engages with citizens, community organizations, and governments to create a healthy, sustainable, and equitable city where year-round cycling is accessible to all. We work towards a Winnipeg that embraces everyday cycling through our outreach, education, and advocacy.


We envision a Winnipeg where cycling is equitable and accessible for everyone. A place where every road is safe for children and grandparents to ride, planning a route is as simple as knowing where you want to go, and doing the weekly grocery shop by bicycle isn’t just possible, it’s preferable!

Patty Boge

My personal goal is to encourage more people to use their bikes as their main mode of transportation, especially women. I believe that if more people ride their bikes to do their daily commute, not just for leisure, we will inherently apply more pressure on our governing bodies to implement safer infrastructure for cyclists of all levels. I have experience with website creation and maintenance and have a passion for building community.
