Did you start 2018 naked? (Rhetorical question, please don’t answer that.) Well, now you can start 2019 that way…kind of. Keep reading for the scoop on the Bentway’s Polar Bear Skate on December 30!

A twist on the traditional (and potentially hypothermia-inducing) polar bear dip, the skate encourages participants to strip down to their undies and skate along the figure 8 below the Gardiner Expressway. Sounds completely normal, right?
