Inline Skating 300 Miles in 24 Hours for Three Charities: Please sponsor me!

[I posted this (with minor edits) for ShabbatSam who is making his way to Canada as I type. If you found it here and decided to donate, please let ShabbatSam know RSN sent you. No we don't get anything but skateylove out of it if you mention us...and that's plenty. Congratulations in advance, ShabbatSam, for your effort. We have at least one Roadskater.net skater, SkateyMark, who will be intensely interested in your progress. --Roadskater]

Inline Skating 62 miles on the Silver Comet Trail: Rollerblading 100K (Metric Century) on Rail Trail to Brushy Mountain Tunnel

After some celebrations earlier in the week and some skating (including one day that was slow and not such great fun due to some exhaustion and burnout), we decided to get some rest and plan a long day out on the Silver Comet Trail outside Atlanta, near Smyrna, GA. We put out the word late as usual, and got regrets from TomB and JonK but had our plan and perhaps some company.

Inline Skate Stops Slides and Other Rollerblading Skills and Tricks Like Braking, Parallel Stop, Powerslide, Slalom and J Slide

OK it's raining and my muscles are fine with another day off so I was checking out some ways of stopping on skates. Lots of these are not so much for speed skaters with grippy wheels and grippy asphalt, but for freestylers or hockeyites on smoother surfaces. Having said that, there are certainly those who can do these moves in speed skates. 

 

Nice parallel slide stop video...

Ghost Bike for David Sherman, Summerfield, NC Cyclist Killed by Hit and Run Driver

There's a new ghost bike locked to a sign post at the scene where a hit and run driver killed Summerfield NC cyclist David Sherman. It was dark by the time we could get up there to take photos. The bike uses different sizes of the "Share the Road In Memory of David Sherman" graphic. The top tube says, "David Sherman Oct 24 2009." The seat tube says, "Still Riding...Not Hiding...." The down tube says "'And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.' Please Drive and Ride with Love." Photos Here...
