bring it on

Interesting that the NYT should run an article today about bike racing on ice. Good coverage of the Minneapolis scene--all 4 of them. But it also includes this note about Winnipeg: "Winnipeg’s Icebike 9, its ninth annual ice biking event, is scheduled for Sunday at the Forks National Historic Site near downtown. Up to 200 competitors pedal a course that travels on river ice and into the woods (" Nice press. But a bit of a wasted opportunity, it seems, since anyone who clicks on the link will be greeted with the words "Icebike 9 Cancelled."

But Scheissbike lives on. No media coverage, no entry fees, no prizes, no commissaires, no course marshalls, no whining. See you on Sunday.
