My first trip to Souris Manitoba was a bit of a memorable one. It was the first time the wife and I went on an actual ride together for more than an hour and it was…pretty weird. I cannot remember what month it was but it was a warm, extremely bright, and sunny morning when we left home in Winnipeg, then 30 minutes later it started raining. Then it started snowing. When we rode home I had to stuff a couple of ice-cold bottles of water in my jacket to cool off from the heat. Weird, right?
The Manitoba by Motorcycle Women’s Patch was created to recognize some of the many notable women in our province. Each stop on this ride is in honour of a Manitoban woman who has made a significant contribution to their field of history, sports, medicine, politics, activism, philanthropy, or the arts. Join in on the ride to celebrate the past, present, and future contributions of the amazing women that call Manitoba home!
A Brand New Crew for You 2021 was a big and busy year for Manitoba by Motorcycle and a lot of that is thanks to you. We are riding hard into 2022 with more of everything to make it even bigger and even better. Yes, you read that right. WE. Wess and Tennyson have officially…

Selkirk Manitoba is the home of Chuck the Channel Cat, a large catfish statue that hangs out at the local Smitty’s. Selkirk is roughly 20km (12 miles) north of Winnipeg along Highway 9. Known as “The Catfish Capital of the World” because of the record-sized catches on the local stretch of the Red River. The roughly 30-foot tall catfish was erected in 1986 and is named for local fisherman Chuck Norquay.
Morris Manitoba is a short 50km (roughly miles) south of Winnipeg along Highway 75. Only 40km (26 miles) from the US border it is the main stop between Winnipeg and the US border and sees a lot of traffic.
A short ride up to the lakefront that runs along the shores of Lake Winnipeg. With an exceptional cottage community and multiple sandy beaches to cool your feet it is a nice treat.
Lockport 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.
I 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.
