Inline Skating Resource Center Blog

With all the great paved and concrete trails highlighted on, I haven't spent nearly enough time on the topic of inline skating.

Trails rock & inline skating rolls!!
So that's what this post is about. Unfortunately, I'm far from an expert at inline skating. Oh sure, I own a pair, with all the pads, to boot. And I first tried the sport long ago when pads were not on the market and the sport was known only as "Roller-blading." Of course, I took a nasty fall and bruised my ego. The girl I was with took an even worse fall and bruised much more than just her ego. I also remember the skates being HUGE. 

Boy did I digress. The point I wanted to make, rather than try to come off like an expert skater, I'll introduce you to a blog I just discovered called the Inline Skating Resource Center Blog. After perusing the site, I can guarantee you that the folks @ IISA knows a heck of a lot more about "Roller-Blading" than I do.

So if you get a chance, hop on over to IISA's blog and read about her experience on the Trail of the Couer d' Alenes, in Idaho. It's a great trail for biking and a great trail for inline skating. And while you're there, you can check out another Idaho path called Trail of the Hiawatha and the Spokane Centennial Trail, in Washington. The Trail of the Hiawatha is gravel, but the Spokane Centennial Trail is concrete, like the Trail of the Couer d' Alenes.

Have fun, but be sure to wear a helmet and pads.
