Bike to Work Day 2015 was a huge success! I absolutely love photographing this event each year! I started off at Assiniboine Park for the Group Ride. Those that showed up by 6:30am were joined on the ride byb Winnipeg Mayor Brian Bowman. Also joining the ride was Arvid Loewen – he was on a mission to complete the longest commute!

Highlights from this year’s ride included pitstops sponsored by CAA Manitoba, Assiniboine Credit Union, MEC, The Forks, City TV and MPI. At the pitstops you could grab refreshments, get your bike checked, and enter to win some fabulous prizes.
The day’s finale was a BBQ and concert held at the Fork’s Oodena circle. The first 300 participants received a Boon Burger. Half Pints Brewery was also on hand selling their Peddle Pusher Ale. The evening’s entertainment was provided by the Noble Thiefs, and powered by volunteer cyclists.
