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.

Winnipeg Cycling Map 2011 launches on May 2

The project team that is working on Winnipeg Cycling Map 2011 (a major update of Winnipeg Cycling Map 2009) has announced that it will be available in 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.

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. They are 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 the Bicycle Valet Winnipeg Volunteer Coordinator.

Ride of Silence -- volunteers wanted

rideofsilence.org

It's a 20K ride at ~20KPH (~one hour) in honor of those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roadways.

We'll be organizing a ride in Winnipeg.

A BttF member has volunteered to lead the organization of the Ride of Silence, but other volunteers are needed to assist him with planning and organizing (decide the route, obtain a parade permit, etc). If you are interested, please contact us.
