Trails of Assiniboia Bike Tour

Explore Winnipeg by bike!

Bike Winnipeg put together a number of guided bike tours between April and October each year, as well as a few select winter rides. These 2-3 hour tours are interpreted by lively and knowledgeable experts and guided through the city by ride marshals to help ensure your comfort and safety. All tours travel at a leisurely pace with plenty of stops along the way.

We offer a mix of free and paid rides, however all rides except for the Doors Open ride require registration. Space on the rides is limited, so register early to reserve your spot!

Please note that as a result of the current health restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, no group rides are currently scheduled. In their absence, please take a look at some of the self-guided tours we and other organizations are offering.

Pedal into History

Curator of Seven Oaks House Museum, Eric Napier Strong, has drawn deeply on his historical expertise to develop this series of rides exploring different areas of Manitoba’s early history.

Ride participants are guided between historic sites by bicycle, and treated to in-person interpretation relating to the history of each site, local community and early Manitoba.

Cost: $10 + Fees

We all know this year marks Manitoba’s 150th birthday, but 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.

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

Bike Week Rides

Winnipeg’s cycling culture comes together during Bike Week Winnipeg (June 7th-13th) for a week of events celebrating the bike. Hop on your bike and join us on a ride.

Unfortunately, all Bike Week Winnipeg rides were cancelled this year due to the COVID-19 epidemic. In their place, a number of virtual or self-guided events are being offered. Visit Bike Week Winnipeg for details.

We’ll be back in 2022 with a whole new set of rides!

Other Rides

We typically offer a number of rides that fall outside the above. These include rides that help explore some of the city’s festivals (Doors Open, Folklorama, …) or learn about the city through partner organizations such as Save Our Seine, Green Buildings Council, or the MB Master Gardeners Association.

COVID-19 Precautions

To help ensure the safety of our ride participants, volunteers, and staff, we will be asking everyone to maintain a 2m distance between each other at stops and while riding. Sites have been selected to ensure space for social distancing, and we have limited ride sizes.

If you are experiencing any symptoms, we ask that you please stay home. We will be more than happy to provide a refund. Finally, please note that we are not requesting the mandatory use of masks during our rides.
