Gear up for Bike Week 2017

June 16, 2017 — 

If you are looking for a reason to dust off your bike this summer, participate in Bike to Work Day on Friday, June 23. Ride to any of the more than 50 pit stops in Winnipeg on your way to work or school, including the University of Manitoba’s Fort Garry pit stop at UMCycle, located at Curry Place and Sidney Smith Street, and the Bannatyne campus pit stop at Brodie Centre. Arrive between 6:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. to enjoy music, refreshments and prizes.

To add to the excitement, U of M riders will have another reason to celebrate at the Fort Garry campus pit stop: the UMCycle Bicycle Kiosk and Cycle Plaza will be open and celebrating its soft launch. Learn how to fix a flat tire and tune up your bike during two Bike Week workshops hosted by UMCycle.
