I absolutely adore outdoor skating (I have quads). I love the workout, and I love to feel the wind in my hair. I also love that I can take my skates anywhere without a hassle. I hate, however, being on the constant lookout for rocks, oversized cracks, etc. I love riding my bike for that reason, but I have no way to haul it to the closest trail. Currently, that is. The apartment I'm moving to is a couple of miles of back road away from a biking trail. I cannot wait! June 7 is my moving date. Also, it'll be a bit of a workout to carry my bike up and down three flights of stairs.
