Icebike 5 - Winnipeg, Manitoba
Courtesy the organizer
On February 02, 2003 at The Forks in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada the fifth annual Icebike Event will take place. This mountain bike race is held on the Red River and its surrounding area, namely the Forks Marketplace and The Forks National Historic Site-Parks Canada.
Woodcock Cycleworks is the bicycle shop that has been the main sponsor since Icebikeâ€šs inception. The event has grown from 40 competitors in 1998 to 175 competitors in 2002 with riders from as far away as Duluth Minnesota. With three distances and male/female categories there is a category to please every cyclist. This will also be the second year for the pre-race pasta night provided by the Old Spaghetti Factory to be held at the Manitoba Childrenâ€šs Museum on the evening prior to race day. The event is supported by the Festival du Voyageur Rivertrail crew who are pivotal in providing us with a course to compete on. With the cooperation of The Forks and Parks Canada we can provide spectators with an entertaining spectacle they can comfortably observe. The Icebike event is billed as a fun event in which riders of all abilities can participate in and have a good time. The 3 distance categories are 3km-snowflake, 10km-icicle, 20km-abominable with male and female categories in each. Registration is at 10a.m. and the race starts at 12:00 noon on the river surface.
For the 2003 event we have associated ourselves with Winnipeg Harvest which is a foodbank that has been pivotal in ensuring many Winnipeggers do not go to bed hungry and we consider it a privilege to share the generosity of our sponsors and participants.
