Last year's Ice Cycle drew 200 riders at 25 degrees cooler than crispened water. This year is well on the way to a bigger crowd yet. Come as you are or dress up with your most outlandish garb. Come alone or as a team. The route will be cleared and sanded and dedicated to bicycles.
Ice Cycle will draw a wide variety of riders, young and old, from couch potatoes to ironpersons, all are warmly welcome! Participating bike shops will offer discounts for riders on studded tires and other optional cool gear in the weeks coming up. Some will be doing minor repairs and tire-changes at the event. We'll have a transit bus/bike rack demo. Sign up now: www.icecycle.ca.
