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...

UPDATE 2010.10.01: ORDERS ARE CLOSED (FOR NOW AT LEAST) FOR 2010 and so far nobody has used the limited return option. Two skaters snapped up the final remaining Sweet Tangerine no sleeve sleeveless jerseys as well. Thus, we are all sold out of all editions for now.
Sooo, I was the lonely only skater at the Challenge of the Centuries. And that was fine because it left all the comments of “what you are doing is amazing” all for myself. Ha! No, the bikers where great there, and even the traffic was very considerate. I had a good time talking to people, and felt very welcome. I almost brought my camera on the road with me, and now regret I didn’t. So many cool things. And so many lessons learned.
