Pedal in the Peg was launched in 2015 as a pilot bike rental program with participating downtown hotels to support and promote cycling in the downtown.
Funded by the City of Winnipeg’s Active Transportation and supported by the Downtown Winnipeg BIZ’s
Transportation Committee, the program was modeled after successful bike rental programs established in cities across North America.
The program proved to be successful and this year will be offered from downtown businesses to guests,
customers, clients and/or employees, as well as to the general public.
The Downtown Winnipeg BIZ provides participating businesses with:
- 1-4 Bicycles with baskets
- Bike locks
- Bike lights,
- Bike racks (if needed)
- Monthly Bike maintenance
This year, hotels such as The Alt Hotel, Delta Winnipeg and Holiday Inn & Suites will be participating in the program with more businesses yet to be confirmed. Be sure to look out for the Pedal in the Peg launch and visit participating businesses to rent your bike this summer!
