Name of creator
The W.R.E.N.C.H. (Winnipeg Repair Education and Cycling Hub) is a registered charity that was founded in 2010 to provide community bike programing to schools, community members, and other organizations with the aim of supporting and promoting the use of active transportation options that are sustainable and affordable. In addition to operating its own bike repair shop that opened its doors in 2011 and reclaiming discarded bikes, it supports other bike shops in schools and around the community.
Materials collected from the donor by the W.R.E.N.C.H. in 2022 and transferred to the City of Winnipeg Archives in 2023.
Scope and content
Consists of digital and analogue records donated to the W.R.E.N.C.H. (Winnipeg Repair Education and Cycling Hub) in 2022 as part of a call to the community to create an archive of Winnipeg cycling and community organizing. Donors provided records to the W.R.E.N.C.H. with the understanding that they would be transferred to the City of Winnipeg Archives when the project was completed. The majority of donated records are digital, both born-digital and scans of analogue records, but analogue records were also included. The records include posters, pamphlets, minutes, and other documents created by Winnipeg cycling organizations, photographs and videos of cycling events and bike education, and content related to the interaction between community organizers and the police. Organizations represented within the records include Bike Winnipeg and Bike to the Future, Bike Week, and Critical Mass. The project was supported by the Winnipeg Foundation.
Immediate source of acquisition
Records were arranged by donation to maintain their original provenance. This means that information about some organizations or topics may be spread across multiple record series. While attempts were made to maintain the original order of each donation, some were reorganized to improve user access and discovery. This is particularly true for donations that contained a large number of digital records. The original order was captured and recorded prior to any rearrangement.
