Well I see I generated quite the traffic with this post! All I can say is that I'm having a blast. Today when I got up, the temp was around 0 to 5 degrees F and right now it's currently about 5. I go to work around 7:45 in the morning and ride home past 6:00 in the dark. The winds were blowing about 25 to 30mph straight gale all day and I saw many a U.S. Flag in shreds on the poles. But there I was, still riding happy and strong on my little ped. We've had about 12 inches of snow in the past week and there are now drifts and snow plow piles in excess of 8 feet tall sitting all over the place. So this is pretty rough conditions but I still ride my little reliable ped back and forth. He just keeps on running and not complaining. Every evening I treat him to a heat bath in front of the kerosene heater at work and then I'm rewarded with a quick startup and smooth ride home.
I'm getting better at this - using my legs for skis and sensing when the ped is going to tip. I then apply just enough pressure with that leg and up I sit. Turning corners in the snow is a no-no though. You pretty much have to stop or at least slow down a lot then walk the ped through the turn and start up again.
Enjoy riding your ped's no matter what the weather!
