Mental health issues affect everyone everywhere and in every walk of life. You may not personally suffer from any type of mental health issue but I guarantee you that you know someone who does. Even if you don’t know about it. With all the tragic global events of 2020, it is more important now than ever to do a mental health check.
McBeth House was continuously inhabited by members of the family until 1984 (long, long time ownership) before the land and house were donated to the city of Winnipeg. It has been operating as a seniors resource centre ever since and is available to be booked for gatherings and events. A plaque at the front drive was placed on a monument built from the stone used in the original log cabin building and was unveiled in September 1987 to highlight the history of the McBeth House.
The small town of Manitou Manitoba can be found in the Pembina Valley nestled along Highway #3 between Morden and La Rivière. If you are visiting any one of those places you should also pay a visit to Manitou Manitoba.
2020 has been an unusual year so far, however, one thing that has remained consistent is the love for riding motorcycles. Riding is an excellent way to relieve stress, focus on just your surroundings, and a perfect way to get out and explore. Manitoba by Motorcycle has been promoting motorcycle tourism since 2016 with a special focus on local tourism.
The Whiteshell is a large provincial park on the eastern edge of Manitoba with a large variety of lakes, campgrounds, and towns to enjoy. Cottage country is the best way to describe it. The Whiteshell is a popular place to ride a motorcycle too, with lots of relatively curvy roads that make it a rarity in Manitoba.
Glenboro is a small southern Manitoba town with a very unusual celebrity named Sara. Towering roughly 20 feet above all, standing watch just off the side of Highway #2 is Sara the Camel.
How are the locations chosen? Does this spot count? That’s cool, but what about this place? Do I need to get all these locations? Although it gets asked a lot I am always happy to answer it because it means motorcyclists are out there exploring Manitoba on 2 wheels and finding all kinds of cool places to stop. That is what Manitoba by Motorcycle is all about
St. Malo is known for its beaches, campgrounds, cottages, Summer Festival, Winter Festival, Family Hockey Tournament Weekend, and outdoor pilgrimage at its famous Shrine and Grotto.
I rarely have a route planned when I ride. I enjoy being totally random, stopping anywhere, turning any time, going wherever I fancy. Though thinking beyond local Manitoba motorcycle tourism there are riders who come from out of province (and country) that want to see as much as possible as fast as possible.
I ride north from Winnipeg more often than not. Familiar roads with familiar places. It could be my chosen route because I went that way often when I was young or it maybe it could just be that north is the quickest road out of Winnipeg for me.
