    Another canuck cyclist here...Winnipeg

    Hey all

    A commuting guy here in Winnipeg (darn potholes) who moved here from Sidney BC last year. I miss the roads there I'm in the Air Force, fixing planes for a living but I'd rather be working at a shop fixing bikes. But my day job pays well, so planes it is. I got into cycling while living in BC and wish I started when I was younger. So again, hi to all you world wide cyclists .

    I'm so sorry to hear of your move to Winnipeg!! I just moved away from Winnipeg 6 months ago, after living there for 13 years.

    I had a friend in the Air Force there, who fixed planes (electrical stuff). I don't know if he's still there or if he was posted.

    Look up the Manitoba Cycling Association for some rides and cycling other info. They've got a pretty good web page.

    I also fled Winnipeg and I am so happy I live in a pothole free society. The rides up and down the rivers can be fun, other then that it is all flat and boring.

    hi bison,
    I actually live on Tanner...I have family in Winterpeg, and they love to visit here. They don't cycle...must be nice to be able to fix your own commuter.
