A few years ago I had to shake things up as the old joys were no more....at least for a while. Thanks to three lovely young skater friendgirls, I started skating, and it turned out I was quickly more addicted than they were. The Year of Skating Dangerously saved me. To honor that time, and join the red skates and blue skates (and my newer white skates with stars) into the United Skates, I present: http://roadskater.net/rsn/photos/index.htm.

Here are photos from the 51-mile recon skate and bike last weekend. We did the 51 route to see how the markings and road surfaces were. We came away feeling some surfaces were slightly worse but some major ones were much better. Overall, I'd say I can live with some patching that was rougher last fall but has had some sealing done, and one of the roads I considered taking out of the route has been made into supersweet asphalt now. It was a fun day out with beautiful skies and great companionship with skatey-mark, northinsouth and timv joining in.
