Mike & Aiden Tan on tobogganing day!

For the second theme of this year’s Hibernation Project, Mike Tan suggested a tobogganing race with homemade sleds – a safe(ish) and socially distanced activity where we could spread across a public park and feel the rush of speed together! We couldn’t have wished for a more perfect day, or a lovelier bunch of folks. Thank you to everyone who participated, as sledders or observers.

A perfect afternoon for tobogganing
