    I think AB's have broken more hips trying to walk on ice/snow than we have. We are probably lucky to be wheeling through it. I guess.

    I've been considering using projection/oblique handrims (paralyzed hands) and was wondering if anyone else has experienced them with snow.

    Thank you
    There really is only 2 obvious answers to this question. I suppose it really depends on how deep the snow is. If there's only a sprinkling of snow then it's not going to be too much of an issue, although it will still be slippery so I should probably avoid sloping pavements near to roads that have traffic. If the snow is quite deep then quite frankly you would be stupid to even go outside in a wheelchair.

    Certainly wear a pair of warm gloves
