Pedal-Powered Snow Plow [VIDEO]


Yes, that is the sh**. If you’re facing a lot of snow still or face it again anytime in the future, this pedal-powered snow plow looks like a good way to clear needed areas around your house or along important transportation corridors in your neighborhood. Clean, fun, and cool.

This work doesn’t need to be a solo effort. Apparently, waiting too long for the city to clear their bike networks, members of Bike Pittsburgh! organized a snow-clearing party and made the work into a fun, team effort (though, without the cool bicycle snow plow in the video above).

Having trouble with the snow? Take some inspiration from these ideas and get creative.
