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!

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. Looking sharp in matching jerseys and helped along by the energy of their fellow riders (and a much-welcomed south wind!), the group rose to the challenge – and had a lot of fun, too.
Summer looks a little different for everyone this year. To keep each other safe, our annual Walk for Water events won’t be happening. We’re going to miss seeing everyone, but we’ve got some exciting new initiatives taking place!
Here’s a look at what’s happening – and how you can get involved from the comfort of your own home:
Support a healthy Lake Winnipeg with your favourite summer activity! Love to bake? Passionate about running? Keen to clean up your community? All this and more can be turned into a fundraiser …for Lake Winnipeg!
