Rain or shine, use 4 wheels if you feel its not safe to ride. If you are unable to participate in the ride join us at 3 PM at the bandstand in Winnipeg Beach.

Who is Sadie Grimm? Sadie Grimm is the young woman who made history in 1914 by being the first woman to reach Winnipeg Beach, beating out many who tried the ride before her. Not too many roads back then and she was participating in the Antique Motorcycle Clubs Enduro ride. She got the gold! Descendants of hers are joining us in the ride and at Winnipeg Beach!

Thank you to Antique Motorcycle Club of Manitoba for kick starting the research and interest i Sadie Grimm in 2015 and to Carolyn and Paul Peters for all their research that has made this event a reality.

Thank you once again to CMMG for the great support they demonstrate for women riders and their enjoyment of the sport as well as their continued work towards a safer world for motorcyclists and reasonably priced quality insurance rates. Heads up everyone. To register or donate to the celebrating of Sadie Grimm Gold Medal Victory Ride on June 11, 2017, click here.
