Commuter Cycling Skills courses -- BttF member discount

The City of Winnipeg's Leisure Guide is offering two one-day City Cycling: Commuter Cycling Skills courses in May. Bike to the Future will pay for 50% of the course registration fee for its members to attend a course. A reimbursement cheque will be presented at the course to members who have contacted us prior to the course date and indicated that they have registered for the course.

If you've purchased or renewed a BttF membership in the last year, you're a member. If you're not sure, you can ask us, or you can purchase a membership.

Volunteers wanted: Bike to Work Day

Bike to Work Day needs many volunteers to ensure a successful well-run event on Friday June 24.

Volunteers wanted: Bicycle Valet Winnipeg -- Red River Ex, Kidsfest

Red River Ex

Bicycle Valet Winnipeg has been contracted to provide services at Red River Exhibition Park on both Saturdays of the Ex (June 18 and 25), and is looking for volunteers to staff the bicycle valet at two locations:  Kapyong Barracks (Park & Ride location) and Red River Exhibition Park.  There will be a shuttle back and forth, so if you are volunteering at Red River Exhibition Park, you may park your bicycle at the Park & Ride location.

Kidsfest

Bicycle Valet Winnipeg
has been contracted to provide services for Kidsfest at The Forks from Thursday June 9 to Sunday June 12, including Kidstock on Saturday from 5:00 to 10:00 PM, and is looking for volunteers to staff the bicycle valet.

If you can help with either event or are interested in helping with other Bicycle Valet Winnipeg events, please contact us.

Winnipeg Cycling Map 2011 was launched on May 2

The project team that is working on Winnipeg Cycling Map 2011 (a major update of Winnipeg Cycling Map 2009) began distributing the map to bike shops on May 2. The new version will have a street index, rather than sidebars with safety tips and skill info. The safety information will be released in a separate publication, and an online version is coming soon.

Our vision questionnaire

Bike to the Future arose out of the original vision of wanting to advocate for safer and better biking in Winnipeg. BttF has grown significantly and is seeking feedback from the membership on what it is doing well and what needs to be improved upon to ensure that it continues to work toward safer and better biking.

A questionnaire will be posted on our website shortly. Your participation is welcomed and encouraged.
