Yes skating downtown is the most fun I have found on wheels but I want to be able to stop on a dime. I'll try making tighter turns with slalom cones.

When I skate around town I always try to have at least 2 ways out of every situation but I know from years of bikes that things can change quick so I need to arm myself with every advantage. Luckily only one real close call so far since I started in August.
