the lakes freeze, yeah, but as smooth as that river? not a chance.

He looked like he was doing a decent clip on that river, which would be damn fun.
Here, you better have some good CX or BMX skills to ride on lake ice.

Looks fun till you fall and crack some ice. What would really be sweet is a jump made of water cause it'd be really slippery.

ARGH!! CANNOT see on home computer!! am slow video card (and OTOH - I shall not replace as I have some new parts for bikes (yes plural) that I want.

However, I have tried icebiking a few times on a friend's bike. I love it - I love bicycling in the winter anyway and it is just a matter of some toothy tires and some open area that made it even better - oh yeah - almost forgot to mention the fact that I've spent the last few years amassing a VERY DECENT road riding clothing set and it's awesome. Plan on studs on the one commuter bike this year.

It is fun and yes, dangerous.

I see few womens out there too

A Surly Pugsley snowbike.



I'm planning to build one up for this Winter in my size, and if all goes well and I own the shop next year...I'll build more in sizes to fit people...uhhh...less than 6'-4" as rentals. I just hated to see people come in last season bummed that even if they wanted to ride, couldn't due to the amount of snow. Pugsley rental fleet is my solution.

Meh. With decent studded tyres it's just fun. And hard work, should there be fresh snow on top!
