Rich has a German friend at work that is really into skiking....a form of cross-country skiing. There are alot of folks around here that have something very similar to this that they cross-country ski on during the summer months. Actually, as of this last week, I haven't been on the road once without seeing at least one person on them. Rich's friend had something a little different. The wheels are a little bigger and can be inflated or deflated depending on the surface, terrain, speed, what have you. To brake, you just lean backwards and your weight will put press a metal triangle onto the back wheel, hopefully stopping you not too suddenly. These are a bit more versatile and you wear your own shoes in these "skikes" versus have a boot connected to the wheels. Anyhow, this is Rich giving it a go one evening after work.
