Some bike fun PR in DFW

Obviously, we dont get a lot of snow in Dallas/Ft Worth, and yesterday was no exception. Snow would have been nice, but we got ice. Seizing the rare opportunity, a bunch of friends decided to hold an impromptu bike race and got on the news. (Brief blurb at 1:30).

Keep in mind, most of us have never or rarely biked on anything frozen and no one owns studded tires. I started to join the fun, but couldn't keep upright on my bike with slick skinny tires...
