RIDE your bicycle to Work! That’s right! TODAY is World Winter Bike to Work Day. An attempt to normalize winter biking. Despite predicted wind-chills, many have already committed to the challenge. Organizers trust it draws attention to maintaining and improving Winnipeg’s cycling infrastructure.
Cyclists will also appreciate the pit stops with free HOT coffee and donuts. Esplanade Riel and the University of Winnipeg’s Student Association’s Bike lab downtown are two of them. Extra this year is a Bike Jam or group ride, departing from the Selkirk Avenue Bell Tower at 6pm and winding up with a SECRET dance party in the Exchange. NEW this year is an international gift swap using addresses and social –media with cyclists around the world.
