Default Re: Do you pedal when riding

It depends on the drive train.

If it's a direct drive coaster brake I may help it some to get going but then I just pedal to position my right pedal at the perfect angle for engaging the coaster brake for an emergency stop and leave it there.

For every other drive train type besides positioning the inner pedal up into a turn I delight in slowly pedaling backwards just to move my legs and freak people out, especially on the electrics hehehe.

I get a simple joy out of sneaking up on Spandex riders bent over giving it their all and whizzing by them dead quiet sitting up slowly pedaling backwards ;-}
