Dangerous Skating Rinks Another Threat to Society: Weston FL Bans Skating Rinks and Whistler BC Canada Wants You to Skate Free

Just a few miles from Florida's great tourist destination outdoor speedskating oval and cycling velodrome, a Florida town has banned skating rinks. Clearly skating rinks are more dangerous than everything else that's allowed down there in Florida. What happened to protecting small businesses? Where will the children go for the chicken dance fun? Greenlight. Redlight.

Let's remember not to spend any money there.

Meanwhile silly Canadians don't know how dangerous skating rinks can be. They seem to believe that skating rinks can be family fun, that they foster tourism and that the skating should even be free, sponsored by the government, no less...even for people who don't live there! 

You know you're out of any ability to deal with real problems when you need to legislate skating.

Be careful if you visit Canada. Lots of skaters up there. And you might have fun getting some exercise.

Great Gallery of Fun Roller Skating Photos from San Francisco

I won't spend much time describing this gallery but let me say it is a really fun look at photos of the type you take with black and white film, you dodge and burn, you hold in your hands, mark up for cropping, and put in the newspaper. I also usually stay away from comments after most newspaper or television website articles, but I looked at these and I was glad. Most were happy. Some were very well written and added to the positive aura of the page. What I notice is what so many noticed, that these were shots of people having fun skating. I hope today's kids are having as much fun as safely as these. And notice how many adults are in on the fun too.

Athens to Atlanta GA Roadskate 2008 87-Mile A2A Road Inline Skate Photos, Thumbnail Route Map, Speed Route Map

Our 9th official skating of the 87-mile Athens to Atlanta Roadskate (not including two unofficial traverses in 2005) was on a warm and sunny day one might have expected a month or so earlier. I knew I'd be feeling the muscle cramps in my quads eventually but that didn't stop me from being overly excited at some points early on.
