Manitoba is an amazing province to explore, but there is just something special about touring on a motorcycle. Travel some of Manitoba’s scenic provincial parks, unique towns and historic monuments by motorcycle and you can earn a new patch for your vest. Manitoba has 90 provincial parks covering everything from boreal forest, perfect parklands to white sandy beaches and crystal streams. We got it all. But not all are accessible by motorcycle. There are over 50 different, and totally cool, town statues to check out as well.
The Manitoba by Motorcycle program was launched as a way to promote Manitoba motorcycle tourism to get more motorcycle riders out to explore this great province. Riders from all over are invited to come and explore the best that Manitoba has to offer motorcyclists. Riders visiting 12 of Manitoba’s provincial parks, posing with 20 town statues, or 15 Manitoba monuments within ONE riding season will receive a patch indicating they rode Manitoba by Motorcycle. Think of it as a year long poker run. When you have your photos fill out the form. Patch will be sent out in 4-6 weeks (usually less).
You must verify your accomplishment by printing out the current sheet and have a photo taken of you holding it up in front of you (and your bike when possible) at the park entrance (or visible, known landmark), town statue or monument. Please respect the area, property and be safe. Leave no trace of your visit except a cool photo and a great memory.
- Lockport ManitobaLockport Manitoba is roughly 30km North of Winnipeg. For me it is so close to home it practically is home. A leisurely ride down River Road then back down Henderson Highway is how I start and end every riding season.
- The Other Forks – St. NorbertI know what you’re thinking, St. Norbert is not a small Manitoba town with a cool statue to check out. And you are right. It has no town statue but it does have 2 historic provincial parks minutes from each other.
