Bike to Work Day – Friday, June 23, 2017

It is Bike Week – a week to celebrate all cycling in Winnipeg no matter how or why you ride.  To cap it off, everyone is encouraged to ride to work on Friday for Bike to Work Day.

Pit Stops will be set up around the City to offer repairs, treats and activities to cyclists on their way to work. For the first time, Red River College is participating in Bike to Work Day by hosting a Pit Stop and offering escorted group bike rides to campus.

RRC Bike to Work Day Pit Stop – 6:30-9AM

Join us on the northside of the Omand’s Creek Footbridge (see map) on your way to cycling to work. Come by on your way to work to fuel up and join in the fun.

  • Coffee, water and breakfast treats
  • Tools and expertise to help with minor on-the-go repairs and maintenance
  • Music and fun activities
  • Bike Raffle tickets for sale
  • Information on the College’s new Transportation Plan

Bike to Work Day Bike Buddy Group Rides

Whether you are a novice cyclist who would like to ride with experienced riders or you just want to join a group ride, we have recruited some of the College’s veteran commuters to lead group rides to campus. Below is a list of group rides you can join on Friday morning. If you would like to participate in one, please register so we have an idea of how many people to expect. These rides will go at a comfortable pace to accommodate less-experienced cyclists.
