Bikes and Beyond - Group Rides

Dropbar Adventure Wednesday

There is something to be said for leaving the beaten path. It feels like an automatic increase in pleasure, curiosity and beauty of what is just outside your door. Just by heading down a new road that you’ve never ridden before—or that never-ending feeling of satisfaction of turning off of a paved road and onto something at least a bit more raucous. THAT is what the DROPBAR ADVENTURE WEDNESDAY group rides are about.

Starting May 11th, join us for  17 weeks of, weather permitting, fun! As we ride and discover new ways to see the surrounding Winnipeg area.

These group rides will be held weekly on Wednesday evenings. Rides will take place at various locations throughout the city and surrounding area.

Meeting Location: Garven Road x Duff Roblin Parkway Trail parking lot.

Rides depart at 6:30pm sharp.

Required equipment: A gravel, CX or road bike with robust tires, in good working condition.
