For many not familiar with the bold north, biking or walking on water is a fun winter tradition when incorporating a few ice safety tips into the adventure.

From mid to late December through February, riding a bike across a body of frozen water is a regular occurrence. This year, ice is already forming, and the fun may begin sooner and extend the season of outdoor fun.
