Hi Doug, Yes, they did say it was at "The Fort". A couple run a tandem bike rental business out of the Boler. Notice the web address painted on the front of the trailer. Thats all I know. Keith

...a little slip up on my spelling there but I think 'we' caught the drift!

I said the Fort, and the spot was actuall the FORKS. The Fort is a local term for the old historical site of Fort Gary in Winnipeg, while the Forks is named after the convergance of the Red and Assiniboine rivers (in the same city) located across the road from the Fort.

The Forks now takes up almost all of what was years ago, the Canadian Pacific Railway's Winnipeg freight terminus. This location now houses all manner of things to do and see whiel in town. The Fort was built at this site to help facilitate the fur traders, etc of that era. Mostly all that remains of the Fort is a restored front gate. I understand that even this structure has been moved from its original location.
.......any other 'Peggers in here care to help me out here, ( ) its been a while since I've been 'home'

Not sure about Fort Garry Gate I'm pretty sure it's still where it's always been. But the yards were CNR space the East Yards and the adjacent station is Union Station, still the VIA Rail terminus in the Peg. My dad was a CN employee all his life and I spent a lot of time as a kid kicking around those yards. The Forks are a great improvement on all the industrial crap that used to be there, and at the north end of the Forks stretch they have a magnificent little ballpark where the Goldeyes play baseball. Of course it's also a landing strip for the world's largest mosquitoes . . .

You'll notice that the nifty bike rack keeps the tow vehicle fenders from hitting the bike! I once saw a Scamp where the owner had lengthened the tongue so a similar bike rack could be installed a little further back (and the bikes slung a bit lower).
