On Auhust 7, a group of cyclists will hit the road from Winnipeg to Lake Winnipeg's Victoria Beach in support of LWF! This year’s “founders ride” is the first of what will hopefully become an annual summer tradition.

Show your support for the riders: visit the Bike to the Beach 2020 online campaign page to donate directly to the ride, or donate to a specific rider through their personal fundraising page.

By supporting Bike to the Beach, you are part of a community of lake-lovers who are translating science into solutions for the health of our fresh water – now and for future generations. Thank...
