Rates*

$35/bike/day

$20/hr 

Delivery available and subject to additional fees dependent on distance

*The base price is negotiable. If you have a specific budget, just let us know. We’ll do our best make it happen. One key goal of the Plain Bicycle project is to raise awareness of everyday cycling and promote culture shift. All profits go to support Winnipeg Trails advocacy and education activities. Any profit we make goes toward advocacy and development, so we are open to sliding scales (ideally upward). It depends on the need, your budget, economy of scale, etc…

Pick Up/Delivery

Bicycles can be delivered to site by electric cargo bike and picked up post event for an additional fee of $5/bike (service dependent on number bikes, timing of event, and distance

Pick up is possible at our North Exchange location. (close to NonSuch Brewery and Patent 5 distillery) 

Sizing

If you know what your participant mix looks like (their heights, specifically), we can try to get the mix of bicycles exactly right. If not, no worries. Generally, omafiets are about as one-size fits all as a bicycle gets. But to account for people under 5’2 or above 6’4″, we would recommend having a few extra bikes on hand. If you’d like us to deliver extra bikes for sizing please note these bikes would be subject to delivery fee but not fee for use. If picking up no extra charge is necessary for trying out different sizes.

Mechanic/replacement bike on-call?

These bikes are used and well-loved. Things happen – think flats, accidents, need for re-sizing. Since they are from The Netherlands and not yet that popular in Winnipeg, they can be a little unfamiliar to locals with bike fixing skills. We can remain on call for you if you have any issues and would like our help. Call Leigh Anne at 204-979-2133

Interested in us leading a tour? 

We can arrange infrastructure tours, brewery tours, trail tours, etc. Local-led conversation/networking ride with fun stops, beautiful views and local info. Cost: min. $500 or $50 per individual up to 30 individuals +/- food/drinks as appropriate. 

Dropping off at 306 Edwin? 

Refreshments and/or hotdogs in Winnipeg Trails Association’s patio garden can be made available at the end for an additional fee.
