Way back when skateboards had steel wheels the boys in St. Petersburg, FL used to all gather on the only hill for miles to ride down the sidewalk. For real speed, one boy would volunteer to ride their bike. Then another boy would grab onto the bicycle, another boy would grab his other hand, someone else would grab the third boy's other hand and on till we have about 20 boys linked hand to hand in a long line. We called it a "Train".
We'd speed down the hill together till someone hit a crack or wobbled on their board(half the boards were just a board nailed to two halves of a skate). Then everyone behind that person would crash, get up and beat the pulp out of the offender. I don't recall ever getting all the way down the hill sucessfully. Though the people in front of the "Train" did.
I've never seen kids attempt it anywhere else.
