Our inline skating group, Landskaters.org, typically skates in Philly proper; however, we do sometimes venture out on a destination skate. Today’s skate was in Cliff’s backyard: Conshohocken, PA [Cliff is one of the skate leaders for Landskaters]. This is a beautiful town on the hills, about a 30-minute drive from Philly. There are plenty of bike paths there and definitely decent-enough pavement for us skaters.
It is highly enjoyable to spend some time with a sports group. Lifehacker.com wrote about this, for example. It’s far better to have a beer after running 18 miles on skates than just to have a beer; especially if you are sharing this experience with a bunch of like-minded crazy people (who are willing to run 18 miles for a beer).
Anyway, here’s the video with some clips from today’s skate, hope you enjoy it.
Go outside, it’s fun!
