Take Part in Bike to Work Day on June 20th, 2014

Bike to Work DayBike to Work Day is set for Friday June 20th, 2014 and the Winnipeg Police Service will host a Pit Stop across the street from the new WPS Headquarters Building on the Millennium Library grounds. Due to ongoing construction at Headquarters, the Millennium Library has graciously allowed us to use their space.

Please join us on the south west corner of Graham Avenue and Smith Street from 6:30 a.m. until 9:00 a.m.

The goal of the one-day celebration is to promote the bicycle as everyday transportation. The event celebrates cycling culture, encourages commuters to choose active transportation, and advocates for the continued development of bike friendly infrastructure.

Whether you are seasoned cyclist looking to ride in with some co-workers for a change of pace, or simply someone wishing to try out “this whole active transportation thing”, Friday is the day to do it! We hope you’ll give it a try.

HQ Pit Stop

The Winnipeg Police Service will be hosting a Pit Stop across the street of the new HQ Building. The Pit Stop will be on the south west corner of Graham Avenue and Smith Street. It will be open to the entire community and hosted by members of the Service. Snacks and beverages will be provided on site.

There will also be a crew of volunteers who can help you make minor repairs to your bike, if required.

It’s a great end point for anyone curious about riding to and from work, especially for those who work in and around that area and certainly for those who will be moving into the new HQ building.

It’s also worth noting that Bike to Work Day provides commuters with prizes, snacks and refreshments when they visit a Pit Stop so be sure to stop by and see us!
