City streets are filled with cyclists pedalling their way to and from work today.
The fourth annual Bike to Work Day is expected to see more Winnipeggers riding their bikes to work than last year, when nearly 2,000 riders registered for the event.
On their way to work, cyclists will gather at about 20 Bike Pit Stops sprinkled across the city to enjoy coffee and muffins and, no doubt, generally celebrate Winnipeg’s $20 million in upgrades to bike-friendly infrastructure. Organizers will hand out snacks along with T-shirts and other prizes and tickets to a victory barbecue at The Forks this evening featuring Red Road Moon.
To support the cyclists, CAA is expanding its Bike Assist program to everyone today. Bike Assist provides roadside assistance to CAA members whose bikes break down out on the road.
Bike to Work Day is sponsored by the city, Bike to the Future, Climate Change Connection, Manitoba Cycling Association, the Green Action Centre and Winnipeg Trail Association.
