Riding Bicycles In The Snow?

It is pouring down the snow. We have at least 3 inches on the ground. WE had more but some of it melted. The road is slushie and slick. I just now saw three boys on bicycles going up the road in that slush. They were having great difficulty getting anywhere. I just watched out the window and laughed. Why do kids do this? Have ever done it?

Sounds like something that my children would do! I think it's just that kids love to get out and see how fast they can go in the snow. I remember my son trying to go down the hill by our house several years ago on his skateboard in the snow. He abou broke his fool neck.

They probably do it because someone told them they could not do it. Why do kids do anything, LOL? It is hard to bicycle in the slush, I have tried it, a long, long time ago. I guess if it there only "wheels" they will try their best to use it. Have you ever tried it? I bet they are keeping warm just from the exertion.

OH I know how you feel. My father in law had a scooter too. He could get in and out of it but that is about all he could do.

I saw the same thing the other day. We have snow too and I saw some kids struggling and slidding along. I can't say I ever road my bike in the snow. It does sound like fun when you are a youngen.

They were tying to wheelies on the bikes. LOL It was funny. They looked about 10 years old.

Hello dear village anne. It is very difficult to ride on a slippery road when the road is icy because of the snow. There were a few times when I saw bicycle-riding people fall down off their bicycle on the street years ago. It so hurts once you fall down on an icy road with the melting snow. I hope that the boys you saw riding on their bikes are just ok and safe. Thanks for your discussion.

I was watching a young boy in his teens riding a bike on the snow covered sidewalks in our town. he was having a blast as he skidded his rear wheel. He wasn't going very fast but I don't think he cared.
