The soggy start didn’t stop cycling enthusiasts from gathering at The Forks on Saturday for MEC BikeFest.
The fourth annual festival was hosted by Mountain Equipment Co-op and celebrates cycling, while also providing education and encouraging healthy living.
There was free entertainment, prize draws, tune-up workshops and stunt demonstrations from professional riders.
CAA Manitoba also had a booth at BikeFest, where they cleaned and lubed people’s bike chains and filled their tires with air.
Cyclists could safely valet their rides while enjoying the event courtesy of Bicycle Valet Winnipeg.
