Mileposters roller skating began in 2009, when the group leader, who homeschool tutors two of the riders, dusted off his skating skills (he holds two bronze medals in speed skating) and taught his students how to skate. After that, more skating sessions began, including several fundraisers. Roller skating is excellent cross-training for bicycling, and helps keep the riders fit during the winter. One of our skaters was so pleased that she went out and bought her own roller blades, and our best skater qualified for the advanced class at Neville Island during the second season. Summer skating began in 2013.
