Five years in the making. 
 
First I walked, then ran and finally put on my skates to "chase" cyclists on ice with my Bolex Ultrapan8 film camera. The Ice Bike or Icycle winter races have been a treasured staple in February for over 14 years. The "serious" heats involve handmade studded tires with a density of 500-800 studs per tire. The funnest part of the evening involves the public non-studded event called The Rubber Race.   
 
 
Come on join us at Icycle 2015 next weekend if you happen to be in Toronto! 7:00 pm Saturday on Febuary 21, i.e. https://www.facebook...54435797964839/. Albert "ice emperor" de Ciccio has kindly provided a how-to regarding the construction of the studded tires, i.e. https://www.youtube....?v=gpvTV3h2zI4.
