I’ve been skating my an old favorite route along Shooks Run in Colorado Springs.  It’s a three mile North and South stretch with plenty of well paved and wide streets to meander through.  It’s been an ideal workout to get in shape for the beastly home streets.

The only drawback is that its almost a ten mile drive.

I’ve narrowed it down to 3 miles before I reach good road, so I’ve found a spot closer to start trekking The Midland Trail.  An East and West route that gets me downtown.

Ultimately I want to front door skate.  Strap on the skates, walk out the front door and just skate.  I used to get groceries on the skates on that 3 mile Shooks Run route, it would be cool to do that again.
