    According to Mrs APF, backie in Mansfield, croggy (croggeh) in Nottingham.

    Backie in S London, which is the correct term.

    I appreciate there are other cultures but here in Britain, we say backie. None of these other words actually mean anything, they’re just grunts and vowels. I think cavemen, given a go on the back of a bike, might have called it a croggy.

    Was always known as a backer where I grew up (Milton Keynes) but round these parts it’s called a ski.
