Road Safety

Cycling champions

Manitoba Public Insurance is looking for 'cycling champions' – individuals to educate Manitobans about cycling safety.

You can be a cycling champion by delivering a safety presentation in your school, workplace or community.

To assist you, we have developed a ready-made presentation kit that contains a facilitator's guide with speaking notes and PowerPoint presentations geared towards both children and adults. All the materials required to deliver a cycling presentation are provided at no charge.

To increase your knowledge and confidence, you can attend a free, full-day workshop led by a cycling instructor. You will spend four hours in the classroom and four hours gaining hands-on riding experience.

During the session, you will learn:

  • The proper size and fit of bike.
  • Use of safety equipment such as helmets.
  • Skills to recognize and avoid road hazards and dangerous situations.
  • Strategies on how to safely ride in traffic.
  • Safe use of bike lanes and other cycling infrastructure.
