Twenty-nine riders will hop on a big bicycle today to pedal their way through the streets of Winnipeg in support of a meaningful cause.

The Manitoba Lotteries Heart and Stroke Foundation Big Bike raises funds for life-saving research, health promotion and advocacy programs in Manitoba.

The 30-foot-long bike carries more than 150 feet of bicycle chain and sees over 12,000 kilometres each year.

The bike will be out over the next three days between The Forks and Manitoba legislature.
