Biking is a sport and a means of transportation that some are intimidated to try in the summer - let alone in the WINTER.
We've spotted a few winter cyclists and thought we'd ask them what the attraction is to Winter bicycling.
Come along for the ride.

How do you say thank you in Taiwanese? Well, if you're the group of buddhist monks who recently set up a monastery on PEI, you fly a 60-piece choir, along with an eight-peice orchestral ensemble all the way from Taiwan to Charlottetown, you book the Homburg theatre and put on a free concert for Islanders.
Kerry Campbell spoke with Geoffrey Yang of the Moonlight International Foundation. We are unable to post the music from this piece to the web.

You can just imagine how devastating it would be for a young woman to lose all her hair, and then to learn, it might never grow back.
That's just what happened to Erika Roddick of Summerside. We spoke with her aunt, artist Anne Gallant, who's spearheading a fundraising campaign to buy a custom-made wig for Erika. They're hoping to get a second one for a 10-year-old girl from New Brunswick with the same condition. To get both they'll have to raise close to ten thousand dollars.

Picture this... it's 1964... February 1964 and the Beatles are on Ed Sullivan. Amid all the screaming, adoring fans in the studio and in front of television sets across North America... a young Alan Dowling was watching from his family's home in Charlottetown, PEI, thinking... I like how that guy plays the drums.
All these years later, Alan Dowling has turned the drums into quite a career for himself, one that was recognized last week, at the Music PEI Awards. Alan was our guest deejay for spintime today. Unfortunately we are unable to post music to the web.

When you're the group that advocates for others in their time of need, who do you turn to, in your time of need?
The Cooper Institute is one of several NGOs who rent space in the Voluntary Resource Centre, an old and, truth be told, somewhat run-down building on Prince Street in Charlottetown.
The building's furnace broke down.
The Cooper Institute is leading the fundraising campaign to pay for the new one, which was installed a few days ago.
Guest Host Kerry Campbell spoke with the Cooper Institute's Marie Burge .

The PEI government pays the medical schools to ensure a certain number of medical school seats are given to island students.
The hope is that when those students graduate they will decide to come back to the island to practice medicine.
But it hasn't really worked out that way - especially for those going to Memorial University.
The province pays fifty thousand dollars a seat....for four seats at Memorial University's medical school. And there's a plan to add two more seats next year. Health minister Doug Currie says the return on that investment has not been good.
He has just returned from a visit to Memorial to find out what, if anything can be done, to change that. Angela Walker spoke with Minister Currie.

The "Indigo Love of Reading Foundation" gives each student the opportunity to pick at least two free books for their school each year - over a three year period.

But now other schools have the opportunity to apply.

Award winning poet Holly Luhning's first novel was the topic for discussion at a UPEI reading on Tuesday night. The novel Quiver is one of the the Globe and Mail's best reviewed for 2011. The book is connected to a sixteenth-century Hungarian serial torturer who - it's estimated - murdered 600 servant girls. But the novel is more than a thriller - it also explores our society's obsession with appearance. Author Holly Luhning stopped by to chat with Karen Mair.

A lot of magic happened Saturday night at Zion Presbyterian Church at the Gene MacLellan tribute concert. David Sheffield travelled from Cobourg Ontario to see the show.
