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.
Manitoba is not exactly a hotbed of sweet ancient dino action but we do have our fair share in the valley areas. Certainly enough to promote it with a giant Mossasaur statue on a town sign. At least the city of Morden thinks so, and I agree.
I’ve read, and likely said, this mantra thousands of times. As great as it is, it is not always true. The Canadian prairies have killer sunsets to offset the long stretches of straight roads banked by open fields. If that is what you love, then we got you covered!
