What is the UWSA Bike Lab?

Established in 2011, the UWSA Bike Lab is the central hub for cyclers in Winnipeg’s downtown core. It’s an easily accessible on-campus maintenance pit-stop for students and community members. The lab hosts workshops for all skill levels and it is also open during the week for cyclists to drop-by and work on their bikes.

The UWSA Bike Lab is committed to community engagement and being a welcoming and safe neighbourhood meeting/learning space. Special programs, including cycling repair, build-a-bike and cycling safety workshops will be running over the fall and winter terms as well as regular student and community access hours during our drop-in sessions throughout the year.
