Inline Skate Shopping in and around Athens and Atlanta Georgia ;)

Would anybody know about skate shops in Atlanta or Athens? I have set some time aside for shopping and visiting. I will rent a car on Thursday Oct. 2nd to check out the country side. Anything interesting besides the A2A course that I should put on my “Must See List”?

Rollerblading Inline Skating Artist from Vermont Paints with Skates

Here's a brief article about an artist who likes to paint with her skates. It might be a new way to paint, but it's not really a new way to skate, methinks. Vermont seems like a pretty nice place to live...summer at least! Probably I'd get used to dealing with snow again, and I might even get addicted to skiing again...or outdoor ice...but right now, I'm imagining snotcicles and it just has no appeal! Talk about gunk in your bearings, I'd say this painting is a bit messy but really how far do you have to go to skate on a canvas?

Paul's Bicycles Winston-Salem T2T Training Ride

Paul's Bicycles training ride began on a beautiful summer's day with temps in the low 80s and a moderately sized group starting the 25, 36, and 50 mile loops. There were 6 skaters, who in the end splintered into individuals or pairs. Each, guided by their partner or own internal drive. The course, in my opinion, was the most demanding in terms of road surfaces which at times were very rough with some great climbs thrown in for good measure. A solo downhill at 39.0 mph prompted a whoop as the thrill of the day.

New Roadskater.net Member from Canmore, Alberta, Canada

Hi All: My name is Marianne and I am a new member of roadskater.net. I live in Canmore, Alberta, Canada. I will be skating A2A for the first time. From all the things I read on the web it sounds like a very exciting journey. Unfortunately there are not many inline skaters in this town. We have quite a big ice speed skating community, but they all train in Calgary in the summer.
