Sorry guys, but I have to post this:

Peddle: v. try to sell (something, especially small goods) by going from house to house or place to place. Sell (an illegal drug or stolen item).

Pedal: v. move by working the pedals of a bicycle.

Considering this is a bike group, I think we need to use the latter. Now you know :)

Peddling while pedaling an ebike is a new career path (not a multi use path or city bike path). It opened up since ebikes went mainstream a couple years ago. Oh sorry, ebike isn't a word.

:eek::confused:o_O.....;)

I guess I'm the only one on the Teo forum who isn't using the correct spelling of "pedal". I've been using "peddle". LOL! how embarrassing:rolleyes: Glad we have the "grammar police" to school us on these thingso_O

Hey, @Falken, it was for all, no one specific.

I've retired from teaching computer science after many years, and am a stickler for these...

Was meant to be a cute reminder :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

Sorry Denis. I'm sure I am at fault here. I actually was quite confused when I saw the post. I have been spelling that incorrectly my whole life and didn't realize it. I'm a pretty intelligent guy and have to admit was quite embarrassed. When I did a search and saw I was the only one here spelling it like that I was even more embarrassed! My apologies for lashing out. Assumed it was directed at myself.....and yes I know how assuming can lead to....:eek:.
