StrikeBike!

September 11 @ 14:00 - 16:00

$20.00

We are thrilled to be able to offer this tour once again!

Stand! producer/General Strike Historian Danny Schur will be our guide on this casually paced tour that winds its way from River Heights into the Downtown and the Exchange Districts.

Relive the events of the General Strike as we stop at many of the sites where history unfolded during the spring of 1919; events that eventually became the platform for future labour reforms across Canada.

StrikeBike! tours start in the parking lot of 529 Wellington and run for 1-1/2 to 2 hours. Tours end at City Hall. Continue your day from there, or ride back with us to 529 Wellington following the tour.

We are offering two tour options on Saturday, September 11th:

Proceeds from the StrikeBike! rides will go towards Bike Winnipeg to support of our ongoing advocacy and education efforts.
