Itching for a ride, snow worries

ShareThis

SnowBike

With much of the UK still gripped by snow, there maybe one solution for the cyclist who is snowed in and wants get their daily fix of a ride, albeit it may not be on two wheels exactly.

Called the snow-bike, this specially adapted mountain bike features a single ski blade and a caterpillar track instead of wheels to gain traction on the snow. The ski blade replaces the front wheel while a caterpillar track wraps around the back wheel.

The snow-bike uses specially made kit made by Canadian company K-Track and can be fixed on to any type of mountain bike.

While it looks fun to ride down a hill, I’m not sure any one would use it for their daily commute this winter.
