Hi and welcome! AthensToAtlanta.com is a special part of Roadskater.net for anyone who loves, or thinks they might want to try, the grandaddy open road ultramarathon skate in the USA, the 87-mile Athens to Atlanta roadskate. It's not a substitute for the a2a.net site, but a companion guide!

2017 36th Athens to Atlanta Road Skate (A2A.net) in Georgia USA

2017.10.08 7:30 am
America/New York

From their website, a2a.net, which has lots of information under "TELL ME MORE":

Athens to Atlanta (A2A) is the oldest and most famous road skate in America. Starting in Athens, Georgia, participants skate through beautiful country roads and quiet suburbia before navigating city streets and triumphantly crossing the finish line in Atlanta's Old Fourth Ward Skate Park. The course is challenging and requires experienced road skating ability, courage and stamina. Skaters who may not be ready for the whole 87 miles may opt for the 38-mile event, which also starts in Athens, or the 49-mile event, which starts near Dacula, GA. Inline and quad skaters are welcome and anyone from 8 to 80 years old may enter.

 

Roadskater.net inline skaters have done A2A as many as 18 times in a row. Familiar names can be found on the A2A Duraskaters (Distance) records page.

30-Day Challenge: Asthma, Allergies and Kick-Starting Fitness 2013

Let's see, where was I? Oh yeah. I was slowly making zig-zagging headway with various elimination diets regarding my various allergies and autoimmune issues. Also, there was some recent talk behind the scenes about skaters and their training and/or weight loss goals for the upcoming training season. All of the above, plus a couple of 20 minute flat skating sessions this week that left me gasping for oxygen, has prompted me to try my own 30 Day healthy eating Challenge. I'm hoping to make it past day 4 this time.

Atlanta Becomes a Huge Ice Skating Grid...for Tractor Trailers and Automobiles

Wow. It looks pretty nasty down there in downtown Atlanta. Check out the brightcove link below for the original video, but I'm updating this to include some video of a woman someone skating on the streets of Atlanta (near Georgia Tech I believe, where we've roadskated on wheels), inspired by eebee's posts below. Here's the brief roadskating video of a different sort...with figure skates, no less...

A2A 2010. Shoulda Woulda Coulda! Eebee's Athens to Atlanta Roadskate Inline Skate Report

 

For the majority of my past eleven A2As, I have set the goal of enjoying those bizarre 87 miles, to skate to the finish line happily and healthily, and never to be the paceline charity case. This year I fell far short of those ideals.
