In the‘ embodiment of the invention shown

coasting rapidly down hill over bumps, both arti
_ ?cial' and natural.
' In addition‘ to guiding the sled by inclining the
body while holding the gripping bar IS, the sled
may be guided over 'rough uneven surfaces, such 30
as-lic'e sloping transversely 'to‘the direction of
travel and'other irregularities, by a brake device
operable by a*_ handle I'l positioned immediately
in front of {the seat [3 where it can be easily'
graspediby the rider. The handle ii is fastened
to'the baseboard [0 by a pair of angle members l8
baseboard in having "its forward end curved up? positioned one on each side of the longitudinal
wardly.. A transversely extending bar , H‘ is
mountedv on the curved end and projects beyond
40 the edges of the board to provide a foot~rest or
> brace member. The'bar ll isfastened to} the
baseboard III by any suitable? means such as a
plurality of‘ screws, bolts,‘ rivets or the like l2.
' A board’ I3 positioned at a suitable ‘elevation
45
above the baseboard l0 provides a seat for the
rider. The seat board I3 is preferably spaced
from the foot rest or bar llxat a ‘distance such
that the rider’s legs are slightly bent at the, knees
when sitting upright on the seat and. ‘pushing
center line of the base board and with which the
handle is connected by atransversely extending _
pivot IS.‘ The angle members” H! ‘are so positioned
that the handle I‘! is‘ straddled by the rider with
the upper end‘ of the handle within easy grasping
distance. _The handle assists the rider in main
tainingrhis balance andalso assists in steering
when‘ the rider leans to one side orv the other to
tilt the
sled.
