My Mom invented aggresive rollerblading in the 50s

I think it was related to that watepark break in, but she started telling us how in the when she was a kid (in the 50's) her and her friend used to go to this spot behind a movie theater with a downhill part that went into a part of smooth concrete that went up--down-up and they used to shred back and forth (not her words haha)

That reminded me of something I had seen a while back and I was able to find an article about it:

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/bike-blog/gallery/2013/jun/13/edwardian-stunt-bikers-in-pictures

I guess it's not surprising since kids naturally seem to want to jump and off ledges etc on foot, that they would want to do the same on any thing they are riding

There's a group of early - late 30s women who roller skate a couple of bowls at the park. It's handstands, some flyouts to rolling poses and spine "stalls".

If you ride anything with wheels and don't instinctively feel the urge jump off/over stuff you're probable a sad, soulless bastard.

Has anyone seen that pic of a guy on a Schwinn stingray carving a pool from the 60's - 70's?, not sure if it was before actual bmx bikes were around, sorry  a little blurry on history

It's 2017, requisite you include cold, heartless bitch in that. Speaking of inclusivity; one of the persons in that crew is trans.

Me and some friends took a roadtrip into the desert to ride a pool last spring. Upon exploring the hashtags for it, I found another group of roller skating women who took a similar roadtrip. Not sure if I would try to land one of these ladies.

So THATS when they started calling them trampolines.
I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn't work that way. So I stole a bike and asked God for forgiveness
