There really is nothing like roller skating around the rink and feeling the air brush through your hair.  Plus, it is good excercise and safer than a motorcycle.  I wish more adults enjoyed it.  There is a rink near our house that has adult night from 9-12.  I LOVE IT.  We took a friend that had never been roller skating before and it was beautiful to watch him fall in love with it.  He went through hours of struggling and not giving up.  When he finally got it, he never wanted to stop and just kept smiling.  I tried to remember when I had learned and couldn't.

I love roller skating too. I first lurned to rollerskate on a pare of my dad's old rollers (antiquities) but at the age of 7 he bought me my first pare of roller skates. To my surprise, and theirs it didn't take me more than 10 minutes to got used to them. I only had about 30 falls until now ( I'm 17n)

Iv only been roller skating once and Im sorry to report it was a complete disastor! I fell all over the place and then in an attempt to stop got my arm stuck in a bar they had running around the outside of the rink and twisted my wrist....<br />
Im glad you have had much better experiences!
