Weekly News Wrap-Up: Ice Bike Races and Toronto Bixi in Trouble

Happy seasonably warm Friday to you!  This morning was a great one for riding to work.  Spring is right around the corner!    Here’s all the news from the world of Toronto cycling from the past week, as well as what’s been active in the forums.

Photos and Video from the Ice Bike Races

On Sat. Feb 13, Dufferin Grove Park was the scene for “Icycle 2010″ – the annual Ice Bike Races put on by Derek Chadbourne of the Bike Joint.   We’ve collected a whole bunch of videos and photo collections of the evening for you.  (check them out)

Toronto’s Bike Sharing Bixi Plans are in Trouble (and how you can help)

Our city’s plans to have an extensive network of cheap rentable bikes all over downtown in 2010 is in danger due to start-up costs.  Putting an estimated $15 million into something that most of the electorate (unfortunately) sees as a “fringe” transportation option has politicians and city staff a little apprehensive during this election year.  Here’s a rundown of the situation as well as how you can help.
