MEDIA RELEASE: CAA Manitoba, Bike Winnipeg to hold free Bike Clinic Tune Up Day SaturdayOctober 18, 20221 min read
Winnipeg, MB, May 9, 2022 – Over the past two years, Manitobans have rediscovered their backyards, and bicycles have been a big part of that discovery.
CAA Manitoba always puts safety first, and to that end, has partnered with Bike Winnipeg to offer a free, open-to-all Bike Clinic Tune-Up Day, this Saturday, May 28, from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.
“We hope to empower anyone who owns a bike to learn how to tune it up themselves this spring,” says Heather Mack, Manager of Government and Community Relations, CAA Manitoba.
“Cycling safely on the streets, on our trails and active transportation paths starts with a properly running bicycle.”
Mark Cohoe, executive director of Bike Winnipeg, says his group’s aim is to help Winnipeg’s bike culture and network to continue to grow and evolve.
“There are a lot of barriers to cycling that keep people off their bicycles,” says Cohoe. “If we can help remove one of those barriers, we’re happy to do so.”
This Saturday, anyone can bring their bike to 987 Milt Stegall Drive, where two CAA Manitoba Bike Assist vehicles and experts from Bike Winnipeg will be on hand to help teach people how to tune up their family bicycles.
CAA Manitoba and Bike Winnipeg can provide basic tools, air compressors and more to get your bike into tip-top riding shape. Please note, however, we cannot provide parts or tire tubes.
Date: Saturday, May 28, 2022
Time: 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Location: 987 Milt Stegall Drive
