Why We Ride
Finding the road less traveled has been at the core of our adventurous spirit for over thirty years.
Starting with nothing more than a paper map, a well-used road bike and a sandwich, we began exploring the backroads of Manitoba, then Belgium, Holland and France. Awe inspiring, indeed. But there was a longing for a return to the Canadian Prairies.
We’ve explored the backroads of South Dakota, Quebec’s Route Verte, the Confederation Trail in P.E.I and the great Canadian Rockies, but a return to the Prairies reminded us that we have an adventure paradise right here, in Manitoba’s wide open spaces and seemingly endless roads.
Prairie Velo was created as a partnership with Bonjour Manitoba to explore “off the beaten path” cyclotourism. We quickly evolved into Manitoba’s only electric-assist bike (“e-bike”) full service shop. Why? Because we believe everyone should be able to enjoy cycle tourism regardless of age, shape and ability. A bum knee or a bad back shouldn’t prevent anyone from experiencing the simple joy of riding a bike.
Prairie Velo was created to be accessible to all both for our tours as well as our e-bike sales. Because of that we decided to not have a storefront. We are mobile. We come to you. With our showroom on wheels, we can fit, order, even assemble onsite. Plus we can work around your schedule. We are focused on a true “try before you buy” experience.
