    If you were so inclined I'm sure you could. I walked my bike because I am a huge chicken and pictured myself wiping out and then sliding over the side and plunging into the Mississippi.

    I just tried pushing my folded Tern Link D8 around the living room. It's possible, but clumsy. I'd much rather unfold it and push by the handlebars if I was unable to ride (or carry it folded if it...
