What does it take to plow snow with an electric bicycle? Apparently just ingenuity and a willingness to try something no one had thought of before.

In this short news vid from CBC Vancouver, it takes less than 2 minutes to discover a new cycling hero.

Philip Marciniak makes his living with service calls repairing appliances. That means he needs to get around — and he uses a homemade bicycle snowplow to do it.

“People were like waving at me and laughing,” he said. “It was really a fun time.”

With this short vid, you’ll have a good time too.
