From the Metro News website;
“Winnipeggers are encouraged to leave their cars at home this Friday and instead take the river trail to work for the second annual “Ice It To Work Day”.
Commuters can skate, ski, snowshoe, bike, run or walk along the trail, which will have seven pit stops set up with fire pits and hot chocolate to warm up with, and giveaways, prizes and a few surprises along the way.
“A lot of people use the trail already to commute, it’s just sort of a chance to say ‘yay for you’ to those who do, and a chance to get others out on the river as well,” explained event spokesperson Karen Mott.
The river trail runs from Churchill Drive on the Red River all the way to the Hugo Street Docks on the Assiniboine River and “Ice It To Work Day” activities will go from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.”
