Bike to Work Day 2019
Grab your helmet, clean your brakes and oil your chain, because Bike to Work Day 2019 is on its way!
Monday, June 17 is Bike to Work Day! From 6:30 – 9:00 AM, cyclists can stop at Pit Stops along their route to grab fun giveaways and enjoy the morning with a refreshing bike ride! The University of Manitoba is looking forward to participating in the fun by hosting Pit Stops at both the Fort Garry and Bannatyne campuses.
For those travelling to Fort Garry, stop by from 6:30 – 11:30 AM at the UMCycle Kiosk at Sidney Smith and Curry Place. The Office of Sustainability and UMCycle are cohosting the Pit Stop that will feature snacks and drinks, music, a photo booth and giveaways! Needing a tune-up? No problem! UMCycle mechanics will be offering FREE tune-ups!
Bannatyne campus staff, faculty, and students can stop in from 6:30 – 9:00 AM at 727 McDermot in front of the Brodie Centre main entrance. The Pit Stop will have snacks and drinks, music, a photo booth and plenty of giveaways!
If you visit either Pit Stop, you will be entered to win some serious prizes. Each campus will have a draw for a University of Manitoba Bookstore gift card, a fair trade package courtesy of the University Centre Pharmacy and an UMCycle discount of 50% off, up to $100.
Pit Stops are located throughout Winnipeg as part of Bike to Work Day, and cyclists can get prizes for visiting eight or more locations by participating in Bike Week Ride and Go Seek. Be sure to plan your route with Bike Week Winnipeg’s handy Pit Stop Map and we hope to see you on your bike for Bike to Work Day!
