Bikers raced across and on the banks of the frozen Red River Saturday afternoon in Grand Forks as part of the Northern Star Cycling Club's Bikecicle 2015, its annual winter bike race.

A morning race only allowed wide-tire bikes, otherwise known as fatbikes. With temperatures around 0 degrees in the afternoon, racers were bundled with goggles, masks and gloves.
