Make your mark on BikeMaps.

Yes, overall cycling makes you live longer. But along the way, some people experience something scary. Knowing about it helps everyone make better decision. Along with Bike Winnipeg and the City of Winnipeg and the BikeMaps team associated with the University of Victoria, we’re asking everyone to take a few moment, think of a near miss or incident you had while cycling, share important details and put in on the growing map. Visit BikeMaps.org now.  – Updated May 22, 2019
