More Young Skaters Having Fun http://roadskater.net/what-we-need-more-young-skaters-having-fun <p>One of the happy moments of the last week was when I was skating at Country Park and a little girl about of five years or so gleefully exclaiimed to her parents, &quot;Look, Mom, he's ice skating!&quot; I of course interpreted this to mean that I looked like an Olympic Ice Speedskater of awesomeness. (Please don't say there's no way.) I'm convinced kids love inline skating. How can we get them outdoors and skating with us so they can be the future of roadskating? Let's think how and do some of that.<span style="white-space: pre" class="Apple-tab-span"> </span></p> <h3 class="location-locations-header">Location</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="locality">Sparta</span>, <span class="region">New Jersey</span> <div class="country-name">United States</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="41.032195">41° 1' 55.902" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="-74.638147">74° 38' 17.3292" W</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.com?q=41.032195+-74.638147+%28%2C+Sparta%2C+NJ%2C+%2C+us%29" target="_blank">Google Maps</a>, <a href="http://maps.yahoo.com/maps_result?addr=&amp;csz=Sparta%2C+NJ&amp;country=us" target="_blank">Yahoo!
