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?
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…
Manitoba’s Interlake has a lot to offer and a lot to see and Interlake Tourism has curated a special Interlake Manitoba by Motorcycle route that covers the top 20 destinations. The Interlake loop has it all: Vikings, snakes, marshes, even a quarry park!
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.
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.
Grand Beach is, arguably, one of the top Manitoba destinations and only a short 1-hour ride northeast of Winnipeg, just off Highway 59. This Lake Winnipeg beach is an award-winning travel destination ranked as world-class. A prestigious rank that it has certainly earned.
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.
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.
