Now that winter is coming up in the Northern Hemisphere, it’s time to bring up this item from last year.
Kevin Blake in Wisconsin created the pedal powered snowplow during the winter of 2003-2004. “Mr. Plow” became his entry in Specialized’s “Innovate or Die” competition.
Kevin got second place in the competition and won a Specialized bicycle. Kevin works for as an engineer for Trek.

Don’t forget the Bike Design Competition — James wants non-cyclists to enter this contest so please help get the word out!
