Bike Challenge Volunteers Needed!
Are you interested in helping out with the Actif Epica bike race on Saturday, Feb. 18? Volunteering is a great way to be a part of this unique event—your help will make this a fun and safe bike challenge for everyone.

We’d appreciate your help with:

?Course setup – set up a few signs and flags on the Friday before the race
?Checkpoint race officials – timing and communications to race headquarters
?Checkpoint hosting – helping riders with food and water, general oversight
?Roving support – on-course support in a vehicle or on a snowmobile (we’ll cover your gas)
No experience is necessary – we’ll train you up and various shifts and locations are available. Volunteer briefing meetings will be held from 4-5 p.m. on Saturday February 11 (St. Pierre) and Sunday February 12 (Winnipeg), please plan to attend one or the other.

If you are interested in giving a couple of hours or more please contact Hal Loewen or Ian Hall (see Actif Epica website), we’ll find a way for you to be an important part of the Actif Epica experience and have some winter fun.

Semi retired, semi literate, a bit reclusive, but enjoy the company of the MIT cyclists-----> a great cross section of personalities, professions, ages, interests. We all share this strange obsession with the elegant, efficient, wonderful little machine called the bicycle.


  1. I’d like to volunteer (mostly just to see you and Pete freeze your a** off – assuming normal weather returns 🙂 ). I’ll send a message as you suggest.

  2. Ron, check out the Arrowhead 135, which is a Minnesota 135 mile bike race (you can also run or ski ). It’s held in early February and has been going for years. Two Manitoba guys , Lindsay Gauld and Ian Hall did really well in the 2011 race. The website is:

  3. Interesting roster of riders listed on the website, Jim. There appear to be many more age defying snow bikers, like yourself, headed for Minnesota!
