This year's Polar Bear Run, across Lake Winnipeg will take place on Sunday, March 14th. This race is a one-of-a-kind 30K straight across frozen-over, big-as-an-ocean Lake Winnipeg (the world's 13th largest). I have raced in this event perhaps 10 or 12 years ago, and (despite the loss of most of my toenails and a mild case of Snow blindness) enjoyed the solitude and camaraderie very much. Although I still don’t have any toenails, I can see well enough to navigate a meandering snow trail across frozen lake Winnipeg. Unfortunately, I am a lame dog with a bum hamstring and cannot run worth a dam. I am considering trying to take my anorexic fat bike for a spin at the Polar Bear ‘Run’ (there – back – and back agin?). This is not quiet Arrowhead 135. It would be more like the Polar Bear 90, which might be a nice introduction for newbie’s (like myself) to snow biking. If you are interested in an Adventure in the Snow, and are not afraid of the cold I would love some company.
