There’s a new way to enjoy outdoor skating at Bowness Park this year! Ice bikes offer a safe, stable alternative for all ages and skill levels. If you’re not a strong skater, you can still join in and have fun on the ice.
Ice conditions change with the weather. The lagoon and ice trail may close without notice due to poor conditions or maintenance needs. Please refer to the Bowness Park Skate Shop to confirm rental availability.
What are ice bikes
Picture a bicycle, where the front wheel has been replaced with skates and the back wheel is surrounded by skates. With a wide base, you don't even have to balance. Just pedal and steer as if you're riding a normal bike.
Ice bikes are single-speed. To brake, pedal backwards.
