Winnipeg is becoming a BIKE Riding city. Buying a bike can be expensive unless you attend this weekend’s annual Bicycle Auction at Terry Sawchuck Arena on Kimberly. Over 250 cycles to view and bid on.
The bikes are unclaimed from those stolen or left unclaimed which are gathered and made ready by the Winnipeg Repair, Education and Cycling Hub or WRENCH thru the UpCycle employment training program . This is the largest and best equipped community bike shop in Western Canada. Purchase of the ready-to ride bikes then go to supporting community bike program throughout the Winnipeg.
