    Default Ski bikes

    Found a ski bike on the slopes. As I understand they do not count for Freezing Saddles since they don't have a wheel otherwise one could kill two birds in one and get some bike miles at the same time!

    Also saw a pedal powered charging station at the Calgary airport. Pedal power!

    If an e-bike counts for Freezing Saddles, why not a ski bike. Isn't this all about getting people outdoors?

    Oh! In that case, can runs count? Asking for a friend.

    Should I start Strava'ing when I put out the trash and recycling? What about ironing?

    Excellent point. E-bikes shouldn't count.

    All dog walks count double!

    hehehe... as if there's any fair comparison to be made between a pedal-able (even those e-assisted) bicycle, and a seat with handlebars mounted on 3 skies, moved only by gravity's downward pull...

    So, is it the wheels or the pedaling that make a ride valid? Like, would "rides" on this thing count? (like Sunyata, I am asking for a friend)

    So distances coasting downhill on a bicycle don't count in Freezing Saddles?
