Pit Stops are open from 6:30-9:00am on Bike to Work Day. They are located all over the city and provide a place for people to stop and enjoy the company of their fellow cyclists on the way to work. Some pit stops will have a mechanic to help with minor repairs and adjustments, and Bike Week Winnipeg or the Pit Stop sponsor may provide light refreshments (while supplies last).
As you travel play RIDE AND GO SEEK: collect signatures at all the pit stops you visit. If you visit 8 you’ll be entered to win a $150 gift certificate from our good friends at the Winnipeg Repair Education and Cycling Hub which you can use toward a bike, parts or repairs. Here’s the link to the form: Bike Week Ride and Go Seek.
Check out our map of all the locations where pit-stops are located.
