Wheels are turning in a new partnership aimed at making it easier for cyclists to go shopping in the heart of Winnipeg.

The Exchange District Biz, Downtown BIZ and City of Winnipeg are teaming up to identify bike-friendly businesses and provide a secure place for people to leave their bikes.

 “Bike Friendly Businesses can have a bike ring installed at their storefront to make it more attractive for cyclists to stop and shop, and they do. It’s just good business,” Downtown Winnipeg BIZ CEO Stefano Grande said.
