Toronto's icycle race is renowned as the most entertaining winter sporting event in Toronto. It's really not easy to cycle, or rather slip on ice. Some participants fall down on their first lap, whereas the most stubborn will stay awheel to the bitter end. Being a good challenge for participants, the race is also quite a spectacle for onlookers framing the ice rink. The very riders often make the race great fun, wearing weird costumes, or simply icycling in their underwear only. It's fun, and also a big challenge at the same time, for costumes make them more clumsy and without clothes it is freezing indeed. The Toronto Icycle Race takes place annually at the Dufferin Grove area in the twenties of February, and money raised during the race is given to charity.
