2018 Cycling Season is coming soon!

It may be hard to think of summer cycling with the North wind sculpting snow drifts in the front yard, but the season will be here before we know it! Registration for Wolseley Wheels will begin early in February. Information will be posted on this website and anyone on the mailing list will get an email.

Wolseley Wheels rides on Tuesdays and Thursdays in many areas of the City of Winnipeg and Birds Hill Park. A park pass is required for Birds Hill as well as many of the weekend races. Racing is an option and not part of the registration. A Kids of Mud license from Manitoba Cycling Association is required and is not included in the registration fees.

Bison Butte map and schedule changes

Thursday’s ride will be at Bison Butte. Bison Butte is in the Fort Whyte Alive complex. Fort Whyte closes at 8pm, so we can’t park there. We will meet on the East side of Cabela’s in the South part of the parking lot. From there, we will ride to Bison Butte. The youngest riders will spend most of their time in the Fort Whyte trails, as Bison Butte is too advanced for them.

Tuesday, June 6 Ride has been changed from CMU to St Norbert Trails.

See you there!
