Returning for another year on Friday, Aug. 11, this fundraising group ride will challenge cyclists to pedal from Winnipeg to Victoria Beach in support of a healthy Lake Winnipeg.
Since the first ride in 2020, Bike to the Beach has inspired record-breaking levels of community support – and we are excited to continue building on this momentum. All funds raised are used by LWF to support evidence-based advocacy to reduce phosphorus loading to Lake Winnipeg.
Please join us in supporting these determined cyclists in their efforts!

The 2023 federal budget includes dedicated multi-year funding for Canada’s freshwater lakes and rivers as part of a new Freshwater Action Plan – though the total investment for Lake Winnipeg is still not clear.
