Don’t try this in Minnesota in mid-winter.

    I don’t think I’d even try this in Minnesota in mid-summer, no matter how hot and humid. Among the possible side effects–frigidity.

      Greg, we forgot to mention the Ice Bike post was strictly a scientific experiment, conducted by highly trained personnel in a controlled environment with rigorous safeguards and security measures in place. In short, don’t try this at home, kids, and under no circumstances should you ever, ever sit upon the saddle while the experiment is in progress. Even in the event of a dare, double dare, or triple dare.

      Incidentally, the Committee agrees with your interpretation of the dread “double dare” incantation.
