Friday Round-Up: Rollerblading, Critical Mass Climbing + Bicycle Love
Unless you’ve been living in a deep, dark cave… You may have noticed that there is a lot of cool stuff going on out there. So, we thought it was high-time we started rounding up some of our faves each Friday. Every month, we’ll be choosing a theme that fits with the Osprey lifestyle. We couldn’t be happier that it’s finally June — which means we get to celebrate summer solstice — so this month we’re devoting it to all things summer related! Welcome to the Osprey Friday Round-Up!
As summertime hits full swing, we’ve highlighted a few things from our blog this week that have us thinking of summer…
Our good friend Majka Burhardt has recently become pretty obsessed with rollerblading. Seriously, she’s going for it with the blades. And when a certain member of the Osprey crew gave her a hard time, she challenged the whole team to give blading a try. Looks like we may have to break out those wheels in the coming months…
Maybe rollerblading is not the standard measure of health. But it is my measure of freedom. So today, I will go out skating on the trails. Tomorrow I will be rock climbing. I am strong again, and getting even stronger. I am appreciative of any activity I do. I am constantly surprised by how much can change with time. Who knows what this will all mean in the end. I might spearhead the off-trail-rollerblade-climbing approach revolution. I might get a new pink helmet. I might blade and climb and climb and blade and be cool and uncool over and over again until I can’t tell the difference. Read more from Majka here…
Timmy O’Neill wrote a post earlier this week about the first annual mass climb of Boulder’s first Flatiron.
Have you ever had a spectacularly bad idea, then been assured by many of it’s apparent terribleness, only to push headlong towards impending catastrophe? Me too.
And finally, some love for one of our favorite summer pastimes — bicycling.
