Winnipeg cyclist Lindsay Gauld will reach his one millionth kilometre on Saturday as he rolls into The Forks.
Gauld has owned Olympia Cycle and Ski for the past 29 years and has cycled for over 50. Through snowstorms, rainstorms and with broken bones, Gauld hasn’t given up on his passion to ride.
“I couldn’t be happier to cross off my one millionth kilometre on the River Trail in my hometown,” Gauld said in a release.
Winter cyclists will welcome him in The Forks’ Historic Port on Saturday at 11:30 a.m. Organizers are hoping hundreds of cyclists and members of the public come out to welcome Gauld and he marks the milestone.
The avid rider competed in the Iditarod Trail Invitational in Alaska last year, but couldn’t finish due to severe frostbite. He was flown out from a tiny emergency runway and will return to the state later this year to finish what he started.
