I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

Going to get back on my bikes again when the temps cool down. It's been a while. Was hoping the county was going to repave the second half of the main road out here, but haven't so far this year. Was looking forward to a smooth ride from here to the main highway(wide shoulders vs none).

I am a sporty man, one of the sports is is inline skating. When at young age I did a lot of aggressive inline skating, many injuries. But never broke something.

Two years ago just cruising around at low speed and slipped in a corner wristed broken ( no wearing protection) Doctor was afraid wrist will be useless, but after many hours hours of training (sports) wrist is almost as before.

So what I am tryingto say many sports is good for your health with proper eating, drinking and mindset. In many situations you don't need a doctor.

Sorry Roofie, riding an incumbent with 135cm crank arms isn't an aerobic activity, but it sure sounds like it is when you speak in the language of "poser".

But, if your heart rate monitor is recording your heart at 180 bpm for three hours an aerobic workout it is, you must have a log of a ride, care to share.

I do ride two-four hours or so every other day in the Vermont Mt's, I don't use, wear digital devices when I ride, so no digital log, but...I don't wear gloves because I sweat so much my hands are wet, wet gloves are dangerous.
I'm a hill rider, out of the saddle, dura-ace 11 speed, my route yesterday was Westmnister Station Vt to Putney Vt to Saxtons River VT to Bellows Falls vt to Westminster Station Vt, my tires are at 140lbs, the wind was from the south so I rode south, when it's north (most of the time) I ride north-west higher elevations, I haven't put it on a map to look at the vertical. it's got nothing but mile long climbs everywhere, I'm "out of" in the saddle on this ride for 2.5 hours.

Not posing.

I'm shattered if I ride 10 miles to work on a flat tow path.....

Had many hard collisions with walls over the years from avoiding kids in the rinks. I started wearing wrist guards several years ago, so far several more hits but no soreness from it. I always wear them now.

You might not need to wait for too much cool. Unless you want to ride HARD. If you are going mediumish, you do generate you own breeze that keeps you surprisingly cool. Well, you'd probably need some shade now and then too. My main path is pretty shaded.

Sounds good. I might try and play it with my son and some of the other families whenever the rink isn't too crazy. I go skating without my son once a week and with him once a week. And while we have a few tricks and moves that we do together, if he doesn't have any friends to hang out with he gets a bit lost after a while. He often wants to do races with me, which is bit pointless because while he's great for a 6 year old, I'm more than a little bit faster than him. But I think he could use his height to his advantage in a game like that.

Ha, that's cool. Be careful tho, kids about 9 to 12 when they're light weight and have good power to weight ratios are very fast. They may not have high top speed, but what they lack is made up in holding very tight laps around a derby sized track.
