    I take it back

    In a previous thread I stated that "winter's not all bad" But I was so wrong. I havn't been able to ride for 2 weeks now and I allready can't stand it. I thought that it owuld be good to have some time off my bike but I was completly wrong. I wish I had some indoor parks around to go to. But what am I going to do?
    Do any of you know of a skatepark search site? I have to find the closest indoor park so that I can convince my parents to drive me there over winter break sometime. Google didn't work. I need ideas!

    I live in Rosemount Minnesota. I found a site to search for skateparks though.
    www.boardtodeathsports.com/links/parks.html
    There was a couple of parks in your area you should check out on this site.

    This is the xCRYINGRIVERSOFWINTERSNOWFALLTEARSx thread. Please use this thread for whining about how cold it is outside and how little you've ridden as of late.

    F*cksakes, go ride in a parking garage or something. Dial in your g-turns and footjam whips.

    If you want to find me a parking garage I would be overjoyed. The only one that I can go to wich I go to once every month in the winter is an hour away. So I have to convince my parents to drive me there and sit in the car for hours while I bike. If you want to find one close enough to cary my bike to that would be great. I live in Rosemount MN. start looking.

    Note the bold words. There is always something to ride.

    There might allways be something to ride but in the middle of the winter you can't ride it. I can ride in my single stall garage now and then, but thats all. Beerman you wouldn't know what it's like. I saw your video with that huge indoor park. Winters not any different to you because you can go ride there. All year round.

    Get a fixed gear bike for the winter, they'll keep you riding all season.

    hey it was like 17 degrees today, and i still went out. I only wore a tshirt and a hoodie. I was cold at first, then i warmed up. There was a bit of snow but i didnt mind. As the Kindergarten cop once said, "Stop Whining!!! You lack discipline!!"

    I go out and shovel half my street to but theres nothing to do just in the street. I have my 180 roll outs, 360 tail taps, and my manuals all dialed. I can sometimes do manual 180 out. I also learned how to do a 180 roll out but when you lift up your tire to turn around I do a 180 out of that and land fakie.(those are dialed to)
