Back during Winnipeg's first Ciclovia I started to research the early history of cycling in Winnipeg. I forgot about that draft post until buflyer sent me this link looking to create a Winnipeg Tweed Ride in 2010 (there's also a facebook page).
Tweed rides were held last year in a number of cities including Sydney, London, Boston, Washington and San Francisco. Great idea, I'm in !
I'll post the early cycling history for the weekend !
