Art and Warming Hut Tour Ride
February 17 @ 10:30 am-12:00 pm
About this Event
We are pleased to be teaming up with The Forks and Sputnik Architecture for a Big Chill bike tour of this year’s Arts + Architecture Competition On Ice warming huts and installations. This free 90 minute ride will take us onto the Red River Mutual Trail to visit a number of warming huts and dig into the inspiration behind their designs.
We’ll meet up at the south entrance of the Forks Market (the old Beachcombers entrance), and have you back at The Forks in 90 minutes.
Make sure to dress warm, and get ready to ride with us on Sunday, February 17th.
Don’t have a bike ready for winter? No problem. We’ve got 10 fat bikes available to lend out for free (bike reservations on a first come, first serve basis) to get you rolling. Just make sure that you get to The Forks about 30 minutes prior to the start of the ride to get the bike set up for you.
Started in 2009, Warming Huts: An Art + Architecture Competition on Ice has been melding world-class design and art with Winnipeg’s famous winters. The competition has seen entries from across the globe and caught the attention of international architecture publications and awards, as well as admiration from newspapers such as the New York Times.
