The one thing Macleod Morehouse, 15, and Quincy Gregg, 14, know about the sport of snow biking is that it’s really, really fun, but it sure hurts to fall.
Perhaps that’s because the homemade variety, like those Macleod and Quincy ride, are clunky. If the wood block doesn’t get in the way, the over-sized, pink, knobby pedals will. Then there’s the heft. They’re heavy, the pair say. Oh, and they lack brakes.
“You eat it so much faster on than you would on skis. And you know it’s coming. It’s just like - BAM - and then you’re on the ground,” Quincy said.
