Okay ... so, a few weeks ago I visited the Skates.com webbie and ordered some rollerblades. They are really nice skates. Oh, they were $50 including shipping - hard to pass up, huh? I've ventured out on them only a couple of times - due to weather constraints.
There is, however, a really nice track that I've been using. It has the beveled edges which I thought would be cool, but it's a bit tricky to maneuver (I think that it would be cool on a bike though).
I've only fallen down a few times and not hard falls. I have all of the cautious gear too - helmet, knee pads, elbow pads, and wrist guards.
I've watched some videos online with tips about stopping and controlling your speed.
I'm thinking about getting a helmet camera ... but why? I mean really.
