All About The Race

Why We Do It, Who Benefits

On March 5th 2017 FortWhyte Alive will play host to the 17th annual Ice Bike event hosted by Woodcock Cycle. Ice Bike is Winnipeg's original winter race, bringing Manitobans together for 17 years to celebrate winter cycling and to compete for bragging rights.

This closed course features everything a winter cyclist might come across in Winnipeg, be it snow, ice, gravel, pavement, or the ever elusive abominable yeti. If riding a bicycle in the winter is just too far out there for you then stop by FortWhyte Alive on Sunday, March 5th and witness Winnipeg's winter cyclists at their finest (and their worst).

Due to weather conditions this year, only fat bikes will be able to ride on the course. If you don't have a fat bike, you are welcome to rent one of our fat bikes for the race. Head to for more information and to book a rental bike.

All proceeds go towards FortWhyte Alive.
Organized by the fine people of Woodcock Cycle Works.
