Bike for the Future – Wolseley/River Heights
October 17, 2021 @ 13:30 - 15:30
Important COVID-19 Update
Due to Covid-19 restrictions on group size, we will be limiting the number of people in the ride(s) to about 30 people per group, and will send groups out as soon as we reach that maximum group size. We hope to get 2 groups of 30 sent out, but since we have a limited number of ride marshals to oversee the ride, beyond that second (and possibly a third) group, we are asking that people that arrive once those groups have left to ride the route as individuals or as family groups. And of course, you’re free to ride the route as individuals or as a family group at any time!
Why We are Riding
Walking and cycling are the two most environmentally friendly modes of transportation and need to play a key role in our greenhouse gas reductions. Transportation makes up 50% of Winnipeg’s emissions (https://winnipeg.ca/sustainability/ClimateChange.stm).
Bike for the Future rides are mass rides we use to advocate for safe spaces for our friends and families to actively commute by bike so that our community can help tackle the climate crisis.
Join us on Sunday, October 17th for a ride through Woseley and River Heights focusing on the North and South Assiniboine Parkways. We’ll be riding out to Assiniboine Park via the Wolseley and Wellington Open Streets.
The ride should take us about 2 hours.
Our Bike for the Future rides are designed with riders of all types in mind.
- We ride along calm streets in a large group with the help of our ride marshals.
- We ride at a speed that allows people of all ages and abilities to participate.
- Everyone is welcome!
- Group gathering restrictions may force delays, so please check this page or our Facebook page for current ride status.
