In three winters of riding my bike to get me to where I’d like to skate I’ve never run into anyone else doing the same, which I’ve always found rather strange. Perhaps it has to do with my choice of venue – I was the only person skating on the rink at the leg grounds (note to out-of-towners: it’s pronounced “ledge”) for most of the time I was there, and I find that it happens more often than not that I have the rink and it’s cheesy music to myself.
Not bad for $10 Value Village skates, eh?
I almost hate to share a secret as sweet as this. I can skate backwards all I want and twirl til I’m dizzy without having to worry about running into anyone else or being distracted by the incredible views in all directions. How much are the chumps a few hundred meters down the hill paying for this privilege at the Royal Glenora? And this is easily accessible by bike, right near the high level bridge, and completely free.
