Join a Group Ride through a selection of pit stops. Ride with a trained leader to see safe cycling in action and count yourself in to make cycling count! Location and time for group ride TBA

Stop by a pit stop on your way to work and fuel up with snacks, while our pit stop hosts cheer you onwards! Bike mechanics will be available for minor repairs at all stops. Visit the Pit Stop Map to find one near you. Or email volunteer@biketoworkdaywinnipeg.org if you would like to host a pit stop in your community.

For those commuters who work outside of a 9-5 schedule, come on down to the Forks from 9:00-3:30 and enjoy some treats and conversation in the sun! Tire Stewardship Mb will be on site to host you.

BBQ Party at the Oodena Celebration Circle at the Forks! Join the Bike to Work Day planning committee and our volunteers and indulge in a delicious BBQ, with local entertainment and a grand prize draw.
