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.
Workshops are available from early spring (April – May), through the summer and into the late fall (September – October), weather permitting. Workshop times typically run from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
If you’d like, you can review the workshop agenda prior to registering.
