A brand new Pedal into History ride looking into the history of Elmwoord and the northeast corner or our city.
Few people realize that Elmwood started out as one of Winnipeg's original suburbs. Not so long ago, developed areas of East Kildonan were open prairie. This ride will trace the evolution of this cozy neighbourhood from remote woodlots and farmland, to a bustling hub for industry and immigration. Rail lines and factories gave rise to their own style of distinctly-Canadian working-class architecture, standing in stark contrast with monumental churches.
As we tour the historic sites and architecture along the east bank of the mighty Red River, we'll learn about the unique influences left on the area by its many immigrant communities from Central and Eastern Europe.
