The cities 6th annual Bike to Work Day will be held on Friday, June 21, 2013.
Bike to Work Day is held annually in Winnipeg each June. The goal of the one-day celebration is to promote the bicycle as everyday transportation. The event celebrates cycling culture, encourages commuters to choose active transportation, and advocates for the continued development of bike friendly infrastructure.
The day begins when pit stops all over the city open to welcome commuters on their way to work. Bike to Work Day provides commuters with prizes, snacks and refreshments when they visit a pit stop.
After work all registered riders are invited to The Forks for a free BBQ and party featuring a free bike valet service, basic bike maintenance, live music and prizes. Past prizes have included free bikes and free bike makeovers, plus commuter cycling gear. [BIKETOWORKDAY]
