What’s one of the best ways meet neighbours and to connect with every little nook and cranny in a neighbourhood? On a bike of course!
Launching as part of International Trails Day and Bike Week, throughout June and July, Winnipeg Trails and Bike Winnipeg are teaming up to host local councillors for a leisurely bike ride around their area. Come take a ride with staff, local constituents, board members and volunteers from both organizations on a random route.
Here’s how it works:
Find a time that works for a couple hours outside (who doesn’t want that?) A week before, we’ll pop by your office to spin the wheel twice and take a photo! The wheel is covered in famous local destinations not too far from each other. THEN… On the big day, we’ll go for a bike ride from point a to point b. We’ll take detours to take in cool spots, great snacks and anything the councillor. We’ll look at new projects, places where we need them.
There’ll be lots of time to chat along the way…
Bicycles/tandems are available for councillors who do not own one or don’t feel comfortable riding alone. Councillors, if we haven’t connect with you yet, please contact Leigh Anne at Winnipeg Trails to find a time that works with your schedule!
