The Circle City Bicycles blog contains info on bicycles, cycling events, pro racing, bicycle touring, and just about anything else cycling related. Since our bike shop is located in Indianapolis, we focus on biking in the Midwest, but cycling fans anywhere in the world should find this blog interesting. We try to post daily Monday through Friday, but we occasionally miss a day. Each Friday we try to have an interesting bicycle related photo.
This week's video features the North Pole Bike Extreme race which was held in 2007. The participants seemed to have a good time, but apparently it didn't catch on. The website they reference at the end of the video now has a lot of non-English letters and no pictures. My guess is that the logistics of getting the participants and their bikes to the event was just too expensive. I haven't found information on any bike race at the North Pole except for the 2007 race. Spaniards took both first and second place at the 26.2 mile race. The winner finished in a little over three hours.
