101 Reasons Why Biking is Better than Blading


http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?RollerBlades
Having to keep your balance, along with varied scenery, makes blading much more interesting as well.


Warren Witherall identifies balance as the missing ingredient in most people's skiing...

How the Racers Ski ISBN 0393303446
The Athletic Skier ISBN 1555661173

He recommends inline skating as a way to learn balance so that you can know what you are missing when you ski without it. (You can be terribly out of balance on skis and still not fall over because of the length of the platform. Blades do not suffer from this deficency.)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Note that the "correct" term for the devices in question among speedskaters is "inline skates" or "skates" and what you do with them is "skating" or "inline skating". The terms "rollerblades", "blades" and "blading" are considered crass when used generically, although "Rollerblades" as a commercial distinction with other brands of inline skates is fine. --AndyPierce
