ICEBIKE 2003
When:  February 02, 2003.  Registration @10am, Race @ noon.
Where:  The Forks Historic Site, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
Cost:  $15 race fee (includes Icebike toque if you preregister).
This year is the 5th annual ICEBIKE EVENT and each year the course gets better and the turnout gets bigger.  Expect open ice, snow, ruts, steep descents and to dismount at least once.
With three distance categories to choose from (aprox. 3, 10, and 20 kms?) there is no excuse not to sign up.  Entry forms are available here.
Also, for the first time this year, there will be a special category for kids 12 years old and under.  The course will be appropriate in distance and difficulty.

FROM OUT OF TOWN?

 

If you're making the trip to Winnipeg and are staying for more than the day, the Norwood Hotel (www.norwood-hotel.com) is again offering a special rate for people involved in the event!  $78/night based on 1-4 people occupancy.

 

The Norwood has all the amenities including a restaurant and bar.  It's also just a five minute bike ride from the race site.  It makes for a nice warm up ride, you're going to need it.

 

Just don't forget to mention that you're participating in the Icebike event when you book over the phone or online.  That's the only way to get the special deal.
