    Rollerblading Trail Guides

    The Inline Skating Center

    “A one stop online shop for all of your inline skating needs.”

    Welcome to our rollerblading site! We provide lessons and modules to help recreational, inline skaters become advanced trail skaters. Our inline skating lessons are designed to take the novice skater from the schoolyard to the rollerblading trail in one season.

    In addition, we teach you the skills you need to keep your inline skates in top, rolling condition. Our series on inline skate maintenance shows you how to inspect and adjust your skates on a weekly and monthly basis, as well as how to do an annual tune-up of your wheels, bearings, and brake.

    To become an advanced trail skater, follow these steps:

    Step #1 : Learn all about trail skating

    Consider the following situations and then click the link on your left under Navigate to find out why our inline skating lessons are uniquely suited to your rollerblading needs.

    Have you ever thought to yourself, “I’d sure like to give rollerblading a try! I’ve heard it’s a great sport for getting in shape.” If so, click Start in the Yard on your left.

    Are you afraid to take your inline skating to the next level? You know you can roll the tougher stuff, but you just don’t seem to have the expertise. If you answered yes, click Roll on the Trails on your left.

    Are you having trouble on steeper hills? Maybe you’ve asked yourself on occasion, “Why do I have to bail out all the time when the slope gets steeper?” If this applies to you, click Skate Like a Pro on your left.

    Have you ever said to yourself, “I’ve been rollerblading for a couple of years know. Perhaps it’s time to do some skate maintenance! My bearings are starting to make strange noises.” If so, click Tune-up your Skates on your left.

    Step #2 : Subscribe to our newsletter

    On The Trail is our free online newsletter that’s published every two weeks from June to September. Each issue of the ezine is based on a different condition or hazard that inline skaters may encounter while out rollerblading.

    The newsletter is short, yet informative, and consists of an editor’s note, a tip based on the theme for that issue, as well as a tactic that inline skaters can use on the trails.

    Step #3 : Order a lesson, module, or guide

In addition, we have skating, maintenance, and trail modules, as well as four trail guides available for purchase.
