This year BikeFest will be happening outside! Join us behind MEC and celebrate everything cycling. We’ll be having various events, demonstrations, maintenance courses and hands on clinics.
Get familiar with downtown Winnipeg cycling routes with a easy paced group ride around the downtown area. For those of you wanting to put some kilometers behind you the group road ride will be heading out at 10:30am led by our own Melanie LeClair.
Need a quick fix? Velo-City, the community bike shop getting setup in St-Boniface will be on hand along with our MEC Mechanics to fix your flat, change your chain, adjust some brakes. If you liked the work we’ll be taking donations to go towards getting Velo-City setup with tools and a bike shop!
Interested in a new bike? Chat with our knowledgeable staff about anything and everything bike related. Want to give one a try? We’ll have our full selection of road, mountain, cyclocross, commuter and kids bikes available for test rides all day.
Gorp will be here with free made in Manitoba samples of their delicious energy bars. The Winnipeg Police Service will also be participating and chatting about road safety and cycling with traffic. Winnipeg Transit is bringing a bus! They’ll be giving demonstrations on how to use the bike racks mounted to the front of their busses all day.
There are various clinics running all day and they’re all FREE! No need to sign up a head of time, just drop in! Clinics that we’ll be running include Bike Mechanics 101, How to fit your bike to you, Cycling in Winnipeg’s Downtown, Being Buddies with Buses and more!
