Bike to the Beach

Perfect weather conditions, the camaraderie of fellow cyclists and a record-breaking amount of money raised in support of a healthy Lake Winnipeg: in all aspects, the inaugural Bike to the Beach ride was a huge success.

Forty-three cyclists took part in the 2020 “founders’ ride,” a 130 km route from Winnipeg to Victoria Beach on Aug. 7.
