Volunteer for Bicycle Valet Winnipeg

Bicycle Valet Winnipeg, a project of Bike Winnipeg, aims to work with event promoters to offer Bicycle Valet services at events to reduce traffic and parking congestion by encouraging Active Transportation use in Winnipeg. Having a safe place to park their "wheels" will encourage people to choose an active lifestyle and increase the use of Winnipeg's growing Active Transportation infrastructure.

Volunteer for Bike Winnipeg

With the summer festival season heading into full swing, Bike Winnipeg will be hitting the streets to  encourage our fellow Winnipegger's to explore the city on two wheels, and to drum up support for better cycling infrastructure and programming in Winnipeg. 

We're looking for volunteers to help out with the following dates:

June 2nd - Pride Winnipeg Festival @ the Forks
June 15th MEC Bikefest

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact e...@bikewinnipeg.ca.
