As we continue a long run of high mileage days, we enter into the Prairies.
Our first overnight stop once we cross over the geographic middle of the country – Winnipeg.
Leaving Thunder Bay on the 13th, TRB will cover a large number of miles westbound – click for map
This will be a long day, punctuated by the inevitable construction delays of Northern Ontario summers. Expect fuel stops and leg stretches every couple of hours. Specific details of smoke breaks, fuel, and rest stops will be published in our route book, coming in July.
Taking the perimeter road around Winnipeg, we will park ourselves on the west side of town at the Best Western Winnipeg west… it makes for an easier departure the next morning for sure.
Call Best Western Winnipeg West ((204) 594-2200) for Aug. 13th.
All rooms should be double queens to facilitate bunking up.
A rate of $154.99 (reg. rate is $209.00) and;
rooms will be available at the discounted rate until Aug. 6.
Please mention The Rolling Barrage, or group ID 1519 when making reservations.
There is no big social event planned. We expect that many people will be tired after the stretch of long haul days, and without the ability to accurately predict an ETA for Winnipeg due to the myriad of potential delays, it just makes sense to take it easy (hotel does have laundry…..)
The next morning, (14 Aug) after your free continental breakfast, the Group will move just down the road for morning registration at the local Indian dealership, for any pre-launch activities.
Then a Westbound departure to meet up with Team SASKATCHEWAN, and heading to Regina for a big party.
Watch our events tab for details there.
