ArtRide: North Winnipeg

August 5 @ 09:30 12:30

ArtRides are back! Bike Winnipeg is pleased to continue our partnership with the Winnipeg Arts Council’s Public Art Program on a series of tours showcasing many of the public art installations in the city.

Join us on a tour this summer and learn about the artwork you pass by every day… What is it made of? Why is it there? What does it mean? Some works are fun, colourful, and interactive, and some encourage quiet contemplation. Join us on an informative excursion and get to know the artwork that punctuates and brightens our city!

The August 5 tour will start in Kildonan Park near the Duck Pond (just behind the Prairie Edge Restaurant). We will visit collaboratively-created artworks including: 

  • Bokeh by Takashi Iwasaki and Nadi Design
  • Along the Creek by youth from Knowles Centre with Becky Thiessen
  • Life Journey by Kildonan-East Collegiate Girls’ Club with Denise Préfontaine 
  • Reconciliation Mosaic by École Luxton School with Ursula Neufeld


  • One Way – 18.5 km
  • Return – 3.5 km
  • Total Return – 22 km

Tour participants are responsible to provide a bike and helmet; check this site for rentals. Please pack water and sunscreen. Tours will run as scheduled rain or shine, but will be cancelled in the event of a storm.

ArtRides are free, though we ask you to reserve your spot on this tour through the Public Art Program’s Eventbrite page.
