WPG BIKE BINGO

June 9 June 15

Local cyclist Steve Lambert shows you that there are various ways to explore Winnipeg on bicycle via trails, separated paths and speed-reduced residential streets (although there are some areas where the cycling infrastructure leaves a lot to be desired).

There are three bingo cards: an easier one that features more protected infrastructure and direct travel, a harder one that is more on-road and has some hard-to-find spots, and a historical tour bringing you to historically significant places in Winnipeg. Each bingo card has 25 or more landmarks. You can click on buttons to be shown a row, column or loop of landmarks, which will be highlighted. You can click repeatedly until you find one you like. Some are relatively short (15-20 km) lines of five landmarks. Others are longer. Once you decide on a row, column or loop, you can click on the “Map it” button and a suggested route will pop up, showing you one potential way to reach all of the selected landmarks. There is also a “hardcore” challenge which requires you to visit all landmarks on the bingo card in one day. If you do that and can provide evidence via a publicly available tracker (such as Strava), you can be added to our Wall of Fame. See the full map for our easier, harder, and history hardcore challenges below along with some helpful .gpx files to keep you on track during your ride.

Warning: Cycling in Winnipeg includes areas where cyclists are not separated from traffic, and that suggested routes may not reflect current conditions and that you responsible for planning a route that suits current infrastructure and road conditions as well as your personal health and ability.
