Get Ready for 2021 Bike Week Events
This year, Bike Week 2021 runs June 7 -13, 2021 and we hope to return to a ‘new normal’. We plan to have both virtual and in person events as we are able, while following regulations from the Province of Manitoba. We are also hosting brand new rides this year including an Indigenous Ride and a Newcomer Ride.
For now we are listing the virtual events from 2020 which we will again have in 2021, but make sure to check back and subscribe to our e-newsletter for more information on all the events and activities as we move closer to June!
