    do we need a word for that thing we do?

    "Back pedaling", "Leg braking", "Slowing down with your legs".

    I think this pedal resisting thing needs some kind of new term.

    ...which means it must be time to bring it back. Cool.
    --Supreme Court Justice Steven Breyer, whose brother is a district judge, once observed that, "The role of a district judge is to decide quickly, wisely, and fairly. This is not to say that the role of an appellate judge is to decide slowly, foolishly, and unfairly, for that would usurp the function of the Supreme Court."

    Chondromalacia Inductive Reverse Powermash

    or Chondromalaciac Reverse Power Mash

    I just though I'd combine two and see how it looked.

    Right now I'm trying to think of a name that expresses how much I actually dislike doing it. One that distills the essence of the unpleasant feeling I get from it.

    Muscular Dry Heaving comes to mind.
