Women & Families
Commute with your kids
The morning commute can be a hectic time for families. Commuting togetherby bus, bike or on foot one day a week can add adventure, physical activity, and quality family time to this busy time of day.

Getting to school
Want to bike or take the bus to work, but also need to drop your kids off at school? Green Action Centre’s Active and Safe Routes to School program offers a number of innovative solutions to improve morning and afternoon drop-off and pick-up at your children’s school. Their School Travel Planning program recently won a Manitoba Planning Excellence Award.

Bike with your family
Nathan Wild and son GrahamHaving a hard time finding information on biking with your family? We’ve compiled a list of great resources on bikingwhile pregnant, cycling with babies and toddlers, planning your route, teaching kids the rules of the road, and much more.

Women as “canaries”
From “Moon Cycle” bike maintenance classes to “Wine, Wenches and Wrenches” events for learning to ride with safety and confidence (while avoiding helmet hair!), more women-focused courses are being offered. Why is it important to get more women cycling for transportation?

Cycling fashion sense
Just because you’re on a bike doesn’t mean you have to look like a Tour de France rider. Step away from the spandex and embrace your flair for fashion. Check out our quickie style guide on everything from funky helmets and bike seats to baskets and skirt garters, and lots in between like dressy shoes and colourful bike bells.

Cycling infrastructure
Don’t know the difference between a cycle track and bike boulevard or a bike lane versus a sharrow? Join the club! But our handy photo guide will help you decipher Winnipeg’s cycling infrastructure and find a route that suits your comfort level.
