Randonnées à vélo : Conseils pour explorer Winnipeg à vélo

Winnipeg Bike

Bike rides are a great way to spend time outside and enjoy the many sights Winnipeg has to offer.

They’re also great for the environment — according to Winnipeg’s Climate Action Plan, greenhouse gas emissions from other modes of transportation make up more than half of the city’s total carbon footprint.

We’ve assembled some tips to keep in mind before you head out on your next bicycle trip:

Designated bike routes

Our seasonal bike routes opened at the beginning of May. These routes are designed to provide riders with a more comfortable cycling experience. They feature reduced vehicle speeds and traffic calming aimed to reduce the number of cars on the road.

We’ve also increased the number of neighbourhood greenways to 16. These 30 km/h routes are in effect year-round.

Neighbourhood greenways are on-street routes designated to comfortably and safely move both cyclists and pedestrians and motor vehicles. Greenways typically include a range of treatments from low-impact things like signage, bike signals, and pavement markings to varying degrees of traffic calming including a best-practice speed limit of 30 km/h.

Map your route

Before you head out, make sure to use the Winnipeg Cycling Map to help plan your route. This map outlines the different types of bike lanes, on-street routes, and multi-use paths throughout the city. It was also recently updated to include informal routes based on suggestions from local cyclists. As a reminder, street conditions may vary depending on the time of day, day of the week, and the season. Be prepared to make your own evaluation of traffic and road conditions, and plan routes appropriate to your riding skills.

Register your bike

The best way to protect your bicycle is with a good lock and to register it for free with 529 Garage. If your stolen bicycle is located, you will be notified and arrangements can be made for you to get it back.

You can also purchase an optional shield decal directly from 529 Garage to let potential thieves know your bike is registered. 

Bike repair stations

If you need to do any minor maintenance while on the road, the Charleswood and Transcona Winnipeg Public Library locations have bike repair stations located outside the branches. They include a pump, repair stand, and basic tools so you can make minor fixes and get back on your bike.
