Pedal into History – Across the Assiniboine

September 21, 2022 @ 18:30 - 20:30


Winnipeg’s role as “Gateway to the West” made us more than just a metropolis: Our city became a model for Canada’s west-ward expansion, settlement, and colonization. What did that process really mean for the people of Manitoba, and what lessons can we learn from our rich architectural heritage?

This 10km tour will take you through the most historic neighbourhoods along the Assiniboine river. Along the way we’ll talk about the history of our city’s western expansion, and the impact colonization left on the prairies.

The tour will help you better understand:

  • The development of West Winnipeg
  • Evolving architectural styles from the 1850s to the 1930s
  • Indigenous history along the Assiniboine River
  • The role of city planning in colonization
