[PLEASE feel free to share this invitation widely with other cycling or Winnipeg history enthusiasts.]
Hello friends, As you may know, I am on the board of Bike Winnipeg, and wanted to share an exciting event coming up later this month. Note that this activity is appropriate for occasional/recreational cyclists and anyone interested in Winnipeg's fascinating early 20th century history.
Cheers, Laura Donatelli
*Strike Bike!* Saturday June 21st, 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Mark the 95th anniversary of “Bloody Saturday” by joining Bike Winnipeg for StrikeBike!, a guided bicycle tour of sites linked to the Winnipeg General Strike of 1919.
Strike! Musical Composer and General Strike Historian Danny Schur will be our guide on this casually-paced tour that winds its way from River Heights into the Downtown and the Exchange Districts.
Relive the events of the General Strike as we stop at many of the sites where history unfolded during the spring of 1919; events that eventually became the platform for future labour reforms across Canada.
StrikeBike! tours start in the parking lot of 529 Wellington and run for 1-1/2 to 2 hours. Choose between a morning tour starting at 10am or an afternoon tour starting at 2pm.
The cost is only $20 and proceeds from the StrikeBike! rides go towards Bike Winnipeg in support of our ongoing advocacy and education efforts. Spaces are limited so don't wait to register.
