What's your speed?

If you're planning on having me show up just to kill me, then I'm out.

15mph is where I'm comfortable,, by myself at least...

Sunday I'm off "as it looks now." And I would love to check out Flatwoods soon. So I may be in!!!

Calendar

I know there's nothing for that date there yet, but that weekend I'll likely be at Flatwoods Saturday after practice, then on the Suncoast Sunday. If you guys want to meet at a different time and place, please put it on the calendar so other skaters can join you. We're trying to get all the Tampans organized

15 is usually on my high end for a casual skate... I'm sure the speed demons will leave us in the dust, but I'm used to it LOL! Of course I always do better in a group setting, so I can probably hang with you for at least a mile or two, or even a whole lap if I'm lucky

RE: Blisters... the problem has yet to be fixed, but the blisters are gone. I'm just not using those particualr skates, at least not till I can get them fixed!

And as best as I can tell a Saturday skate is certainly in reason. That will give you somebody slower to hang with.

Maybe the 31st would be a good first day to skate again slowly around watching the rest of you guys fly by...That would be about 6 weeks from my injury. Will you remind me daughter?

Pending weather... it sounds like Saturday the 31st is a winner!!!

What about time? Jessica mentioned "after practice", but not a time... 9, 10, noon??? I'm up for any time 9AM or later.

Hi all....

My name is Jon bought k2 motos two days ago and been riding the ream wilson trail here in Clearwater since I live right next to it. Bought my first pair of skates when I was 10 one of those with a cheap abs construction along with the real cheap abs plastic wheels so I ditched those and never got back on inlines till now. I'm not your average beginner though I have many years of ice skating and I can hold my own...

Enough about me though do I need a special invitation for these group rides or is it a open ride? I have no clue how fast I can go so I am sort of expecting to eat dust......

Are there any other decent trails here in Tampa Bay area that are worth looking into?

Hello Jon

No special invites required, at least not that I'm aware of...

I've done a bit of Ice Skating myself & I must say... at least for me... it's easier & faster on wheels, but the later may be due to the former

Feel free to come join us, meet some of your fellow area skaters... and anyone else who might show up... & hopefully have a good time!!!

lol

Practice is over at 9, so I go home and meet everyone at 4 corners. Usually the meet time says 9:30 at the Morris Bridge entrance, but I won't be there obviously. I'll meet y'all on the trail.

Jon - everyone is welcome. There are tons of group skates in the Clearwater area, but I don't get over that way too often. If you would like to skate with us, please check the calendar on my site and just show up!!

Malkovsky, if we get our schedules together sometime in the future- and if you would like, we could car-pool to Tampa.

We could drive to a spot here in Pinellas, park it-- and drive in together..

Of course there is an issue of going Green and fairness involved ......

Either I-- or you, can kick down $10. to help pay for gas.... We'll work it out,,, just let me know if you'd be interested......

Im in.

i'm capable of sucking real bad 10-12 or cruising 13-16mph. 16+ i get dusted after about a quarter mile. I'm actually getting to skate more often and the knee is not so bad so i'm thinking i'll average 14mph over 7-14miles.

Also I'm on the way to Tampa I live right next the Camble bridge and bayside bridge so its not to far off. Let me know when you up for it...

I think there's only one speed demon involved here. Some say she once chased a cyclist into the bushes, and she only eats chocolate. All we know is, she's called the Queen of the Mile.

9AM sounds like a good arrival time to me... Arrive at the park 9AM, start skating by 9:30.

LOL!!! compared to me, a lot of people are speed demons

I once ran a bicyclist off the path, she wrecked but was okay, I managed to stay on my skates by running into the grass then back onto the pavement... long story short, instead of keeping her line so that we wouldn't even come close, she took a b-line right at me & I pulled out some ninja-like reflexes to keep from getting flattened.

Chocolate eh... so that's what I'm doing wrong...
