Cycling Tips

  • Gear up. Take the weight off your back with bike panniers, and don’t forget a good U-lock and bike lights, especially if you’re riding at dawn or dusk.
  • Get protection. Register your bike with City of Winnipeg Community Services Bicycle Recovery Section.
  • Stay safe. Manitoba Public Insurance (MPI) has a wealth of information on cycling safely. 
  • Lock it up. The frame and one wheel should be secure with a solid steel U-lock. Secure any additional quick-release parts, including your second wheel and seat, with another U-lock or a double-end cable lock.
  • See something, say something. Report bike theft or suspicious behaviour to Campus Security Services and Winnipeg Police.

Showers

Staff who bike, run or walk to campus can purchase a shower-only pass at Max Bell on Fort Garry or Joe Doupe on Bannatyne campus. Purchase day pass access for $2, or monthly pass access for $10. Register at the customer service desk in the Active Living Centre (Fort Garry campus), or in Room 030 at the Brodie Centre (Bannatyne campus).
