Postponed – Pedal Into History: Birth of a Province
July 13 @ 19:00 - 20:30
We have postponed this event. Look for a new date and time soon.
How many of us really know the people and places that led to our province’s foundation?
This family-friendly ride along the scenic Red & Assiniboine Rivers will introduce you to the remarkable characters and exciting events that helped our home take shape.
Curator of Seven Oaks House Museum, Eric Napier Strong, is our guide for the Pedal into History – Birth of a Province tour.. Drawing on his deep historical expertise, Eric will share Winnipeg’s early history with us as we follow one of the city’s most scenic rides along the Red River. The tour will help you better understand:
- Our local history before we became Manitoba
- The historical architecture of our downtown
- The differing cultures and perspectives of English and French Metis communities
- The impact of Canadian colonialism on local ways of life
The Pedal into History – Birth of a Province tour starts at the Oodena Circle at the Forks (behind the Johnston Terminal) and runs for about 1.5 hours, ending at the Legislative Building (450 Broadway). You can choose to leave directly from the end point, or join Bike Winnipeg’s ride marshals in a group ride back to our starting point if you’d prefer.
