The Ice Riders are a student group at the University of Winnipeg. They are a non-profit organization that helps people have better access to the resources they need to bike all year round.
The Ice Riders are in the process of building a bike lab on the UofWinnipeg campus. It should be completed this spring, and it will be a base for anyone with a bike to come by for repairs, advice, or even to build a bike. Close to fifty students and non students are committed to volunteering their time to make this a success, but a real issue is funding.
The link below takes you to a video which was created by a few members and friends, and submitted to the TD Go Green Challenge, where the successful candidates will receive $100,000 of funding to implement their project. TD is also doing a People’s Choice award of $2,500. This is where you can help. Please view the video, and if you are so inclined, please vote for it. Any vote helps, and so far the Ice Riders are ahead of the pack!
PS: Please tell your friends!
