Unfinished business in Georgia!

The A2A Story from a first timer who did not cross the finish line. BUMMER!!!

Inline Skate Shopping in and around Athens and Atlanta Georgia ;)

Would anybody know about skate shops in Atlanta or Athens? I have set some time aside for shopping and visiting. I will rent a car on Thursday Oct. 2nd to check out the country side. Anything interesting besides the A2A course that I should put on my “Must See List”?

New Skates

 I will have to give up my dear old Salomon TR Vitess sooner or later. They never gave me a blister, never had a pressure point, in short; they fit like a glove and feel like a slipper. But during the last 100 km I did get a pressure point on the top of my left foot. Very annoying! Also the ankle support is starting to packed down. Now that Salomon is not selling skates any more I am in trouble. I did buy a K2 radical 90. Big Mistake! Even after getting the Boot Fitter put in new insoles, I was right back into my Salomon.

100 km skate and wildlife

Yesterday I skated 100 km from the Banff Gate (west of Canmore) to Castel Mountain Junction Hwy #1 and Hwy 93 in 4 hrs and 10 min. It was a beautiful day and the view like always spectacular. (Check out the pictures on Google Earth.) My husband met me at the half way point with water and more GU ROCTANE GEL (the only gel I can take without making to much of a face) :) Needless to say, that on the way home, I had to fight some head wind.

New Roadskater.net Member from Canmore, Alberta, Canada

Hi All: My name is Marianne and I am a new member of roadskater.net. I live in Canmore, Alberta, Canada. I will be skating A2A for the first time. From all the things I read on the web it sounds like a very exciting journey. Unfortunately there are not many inline skaters in this town. We have quite a big ice speed skating community, but they all train in Calgary in the summer.
