On Sunday February 5, 2012 was the 3rd annual Ice Cycle in Saskatoon.
Tim already posted some photos on his bike blog - you can check them out here.
The weather for the previous two bike parades was really cold but this year it was super nice, maybe -5C or so. Sure beats -4oC! Not warm enough for wearing shorts like one guy I know, but I wasn't wearing my snow pants so you know it must have been warm!
We started off at the Farmer's Market then went up 19th Street...
past the Bessborough Hotel....
up to 22nd, then to 4th Avenue (map of parade)
and ended up back at the market.
Here's a friend with his bike-mobile that was carrying three young children in the parade.
In the background you can see the climbing structure that was set up for kids to try. Last year ice climbing demos had been set up but alas with the warm weather this February, it would have been more like a waterfall. There was also a huge ice castle complete with slide for kids to enjoy.
Our happy cyclists after the parade were heading across the river for their Irish dance class and I went in the other direction to lead a karma yoga class at Namaskar Yoga in support of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (Team in Training).
