Most people tremble at the idea of riding a bike in the winter. Others, relish in it. For several dedicated Toronto cyclists and bike messengers, winter is a time to show their dedication.
For nearly twenty years, Toronto has been the scene of North America's only bicycle ice race in a closed velodrome style circuit - otherwise known as an ice hockey rink. The race also exists to fund raise for the local community - and the 2012 year raised funds for at-risk youth program called Charlie's Freewheels (charliesfreewheels.ca/)
Le Roi de Glace follows a few ambitious cyclists who are set on winning this prestigious yearly event.
