Or load it onto your monowalker if you don't have a motorized vehicle. :lol:

Not forgetting to plan a route that doesn't have stiles I would think.

That's quite cool, I wonder if it could work like a sledge too...

So then you could have a land, calm water and snow get around vehicle....potentially?

:tinfoil

That definitely makes me think of the Daleks, before they got those little boosters that meant they floated :lol:

The monowalker could deffo be a posh version of a luggage trolley, though the wording and the background pix are shrieking out "crazy survivalist" :shock:

But that shuttlebike is brilliant :lol:
**warning: thought experiment**
I love it. To be honest, it takes me back to when I was analysing bottlenecks in Get Home routes a few years back, and nearly all of them were to do with bridges over water. But the water is basically tidal rivers or sea - the Thames (Dartford River crossing), the Menai Straits, the Severn Bridge, the Firth of Forth - socking great bridges over socking great stretches of water that between them carry hundreds of thousands of commuters every day. I'm betting the currents in any of those would be too strong for the shuttlebike, but at slack tide, with a bit of diy help on the gearing ... maybe? It would have to be life or death, though, not just an inconvenient delay, getting swept out to sea would be more than inconvenient.
