I used to, a lot - commuted to classes on them, and buzzed around trails after I finished (gotta love taking a humanities major at university.) I don't really know why I stopped - I guess I got more into cycling? Also I was a terrible chicken for the first couple of weeks in the spring, I would see an upcoming curb and freak out that I was not going to make it, which made me wipe out all that much sooner. Or just randomly fall over at stop lights, which was embarrassing.
Excellent workout though, and much lower-impact than running (aside from the high-impact crashes.)
