Cyclist dies after collision on way to Monday's Bomber game

  • Print

A cyclist has died after being hit by a car on his way to Monday’s Winnipeg Blue Bomber exhibition game.

An avid Bomber fan, Dick Stevenson, 69, suffered head injuries when he was hit by a car on Pembina Highway near Bishop Grandin Boulevard around 5:30 p.m.

He was wearing a helmet, a family friend said. He died early Tuesday morning.

Stevenson was a member of the successful real estate and development family, which sold their company, S. S. Stevenson & Company Limited, to the Chipman family in 1987.

Monday’s exhibition game at Investors Group Field did not cause significant traffic jams, though organizers of the bike valet services said their bike lock-up area was busy.

In a typical year, one or two cyclists are killed on Winnipeg streets.

The stretch of Pembina where Stevenson was hit has no cycling infrastructure such as the protected bike lanes located further north. It is near an area where Winnipeg’s cycling map advises caution.
