Unfortunately, cars and bikes donâ€™t always get along, and when confrontations happen, the bike is usually on the loosing end.
For those that pass on to the bike path in the sky, a painted white â€œGhost Bikeâ€ is often locked to a nearby pole as an epitaph to the departed biker. These bikes serve as a reminder to cars that everyone needs to share the road, so the next time you see one remember: Share the road to save a life.
On my last trip to the snow, I saw a few folks running around the mountain on snow bikes, and it looked like a blast.
However, while the whole bike with skis for tires idea sounded like a lot of fun, the lack of suspension made it look like it would be less than fun after just a few minutes.
If youâ€™re just dying to ditch the skis for something new though, then check out Boozhound Laboratoriesâ€™ full suspension Skibike MkII. It takes the snow bound bike idea and adds in up to 10 inches of suspension travel for a cushy ride thatâ€™s sure to be easier on your tushy.
