Manitoba Public Insurance is looking for ‘cycling champions’ – individuals to educate Manitobans about cycling safety.

You can be a cycling champion by delivering a safety presentation in your school, workplace or community.

To assist you, we have developed a ready-made presentation kit that contains a facilitator’s guide with speaking notes and PowerPoint presentations geared towards both children and adults. All the materials required to deliver a cycling presentation are provided at no charge.

To increase your knowledge and confidence, you can attend a free, full-day workshop led by a CAN-BIKE qualified instructor. You will spend four hours in the classroom and four hours gaining hands-on riding experience.

During the session, you will learn:

  • The proper size and fit of bike.
  • Use of safety equipment such as helmets.
  • Skills to recognize and avoid road hazards and dangerous situations.
  • Strategies on how to safely ride in traffic.
  • Safe use of bike lanes and other cycling infrastructure.

Workshop Schedule

Workshops are available from early spring (April – May), through the summer and into the late fall (September – October), weather permitting. Workshop times typically run from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

If you’d like, you can review the workshop agenda prior to registering.

Cycling Champion workshop dates:

  • Friday, May 27, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Pembina Highway Service Centre, 420 Pembina Highway
  • Saturday, June 18, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Main Street Service Centre, 1284 Main Street

Custom dates and times can also be scheduled for groups of six or more potential champions.
