So I bought a cheap digital camera and decided I would take photos and edit them and post them mostly without comment (hard for me!).&nbsp;The collection grew to 31,000 photos!&nbsp;Before September 11, airline flights were cheaper than the gasoline to drive some places.

I edited them.&nbsp;</p><p><a href="http://roadskater.net/roadskater-net-photos-revolved-faster-better-fetching-views-people-days-and-places-brightened-my-life" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/roadskater-net-photos-revolved-faster-better-fetching-views-people-days-and-places-brightened-my-life#comments Roadskater.net 2011 2012 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2000s United States of America (USA) North Carolina (NC) 2000-9 2010s Alabama (AL) Anniston AL Athens GA Athens to Atlanta (a2a) Atlanta GA bike rides Carolina Century charity rides Clemmons NC Dacula GA District of Columbia (DC) Earth Florida (FL) Forsyth County NC Georgia (GA) Greensboro NC Guilford County NC inline skating Manhattan NY Miami Beach FL New York (NY) New York City NY open road outdoor Pennsylvania (PA) Philadelphia PA photo albums photofloat photogalleries Roadskater.net roadskating skating skrides (skateable bike rides) Smyrna GA South Beach FL Tanglewood Park Tour to Tanglewood (t2t ttt) Washington DC websites photos North America http://roadskater.net/crss/node/1457 Thu, 08 Nov 2012 02:25:42 +0000 roadskater 1457 at http://roadskater.net New York 100K Makes the Wall Street Journal http://roadskater.net/new-york-100k-makes-wall-street-journal <p>Here's an article in the Wall Street Journal about yesterday's NY 100K skate!&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><a href="http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424053111903703604576589282709013172.html#articleTabs%3Darticle">http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424053111903703604576589282709013172.html#articleTabs%3Darticle</a></p><p>It's always good when outdoor speed skating gets good press.</p><p>Various results .pdf docs:</p><p><a href="http://www.yellowjacketracing.com/files/user/NYCSkate100kOverall2011.pdf">http://www.yellowjacketracing.com/files/user/NYCSkate100kOverall2011.pdf</a></p><p><a href="http://www.yellowjacketracing.com/files/user/NYCSkate42kOverall2011.pdf">http://www.yellowjacketracing.com/files/user/NYCSkate42kOverall2011.pdf</a></p><p><a href="http://www.yellowjacketracing.com/files/user/NYCSkate21kOverall2011.pdf">http://www.yellowjacketracing.com/files/user/NYCSkate21kOverall2011.pdf</a></p><p><a href="http://roadskater.net/new-york-100k-makes-wall-street-journal" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/new-york-100k-makes-wall-street-journal#comments Roadskater.net 2011 2000s United States of America (USA) 2010s Brooklyn NY closed road Earth inline inline skates inline skating Manhattan NY New York (NY) New York City NY outdoor outdoor inline speed Prospect Park NY racing skate boots skating speed speed skating speedskating world level rolling hills skates North America http://roadskater.net/crss/node/1398 Mon, 26 Sep 2011 03:51:37 +0000 eebee 1398 at http://roadskater.net Skating Away With the Cirque du Soleil: Katie Ketchum Rolls and Balances in Buffalo, Tehachapi and Manhattan http://roadskater.net/skating-away-cirque-du-soleil-katie-ketchum-rolls-and-balances-buffalo-tehachapi-and-manhattan <p>I found the link to&nbsp;<a href="http://www.bizjournals.com/buffalo/blog/gen-work/2011/01/loving-it-from-skates-to-cirque.html" target="_blank">this article pondering about do what you love and all that</a> over on an inline instruction email list, and they were joking about running away with the circus, so I should credit them for the idea of my title, too!

As glorious as it is, the West Side Path has its dangers, especially on speed skates or among those who are trying to use it for training (unless you like fartlek training). But it&#39;s an incredibly important improvement to the quality of life and health on the island, and just tons of fun. The NYT article covers a nice balance of what&#39;s great about it and why it&#39;s important to be careful, not blaming either motorists or trail users. It also points to a few of the specific tough spots and how they might be made better. Some of the most fun I&#39;ve ever had has been on and around the West Side Path, thanks to Empire Skate Club folk and the Wednesday Night Skate group too. Here are some links.
