One week to go
What does the GodFather of Skate do off playa? The same thing I do on playa - I skate!!!
We have one more week and we will have completed our Kickstarter campaign for the Black Rock Roller Disco. Next Sunday we will be morphing out of the roller disco realm and into the world on inline speed skating. We love closing roads to car traffic so that we can transform the roadway into playgrounds for 21st century people. We call it "recreatiuonal asphalt". However this is a little diffrent than what I present on the playa.
This is a 26 mile skate race that will take place on Sunday, July 10, 2011. This is the final day of our campaign. Many of the nation's top speedskaters and those hoping to join their ranks will put those powerful legs to the test as we close a 7 miles portion of the Silverado Trail in the world Famous Napa Wine Valley.
As a group, most speedskaters are not the burner type. Most think we're the hippees in the desert naked on drugs. I keep telling them I'm not naked!!!!! I have had to fight the CHP, Napa County officials, irate winery owners and more for many years and now the Napa Valley community has embraced us and help us tremendously. We even had the opportunity to skate with the secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood and Congressman Mike Thompson in the Napa Valley this past May.
If anyone happens to be anywhere the Napa Valley on July 10, Stop by and say hi at the Napa Valley Inline Marathon. We're doing an after race barbecue at Yountville Park in Yountville. There are so many great wineries, you can't help but have a great time.
