look up any word, like pussy:
 
1.
To reverse to an earlier part of an argument and alter and reuse it later on in the argument. Kind of like how literally backpedaling on a bike makes it reverse, so you can change directions after going the wrong way.
Person 1: The PS4 is selling more than the Xbone!
Person 2: But it doesn't have many games.
Person 1: Your Xbone is still selling less than the PS4!
Person 2: Keep backpedaling.

2.
Backpedaling is a fun, but dangerous activity. To backpedal, one must run backwards. That makes it dangerous because you can't see what is ahead of you in the direction you are running. The writer of this definition broke his wrist while preforming this exercise on the day this definition was written.
In P.E, we were backpedaling around the gym. I tripped, and broke my wrist.
