....I've seen it all!!
I drove onto campus (the home of strange cyclists) and saw someone on skis! Clearly they weren't real skis as we have had no sudden and totally unexpected snow fall. They were short skis on wheels and I suppose he was practicing in the absence of snow, but he had ski-poles and all, which must have caused a few double-takes.
Certainly it was a bit risky trying to steer the car around him as he was flinging his ski-poles all over the place - he obviously needs a bit more practice!
