There is no shortage of long, smooth, steep hills in Mt. Horeb, WI where I live. Shortly after I moved there, some local friends and I decided to get longboards and see what kind of fun we could have. Between the 3 of us, we've only destroyed one of our 6 ACLs!
We typically cruise the streets after 9pm. By this time our kids are usually in bed and traffic is pretty low. Last weekend we broke from our routine and got a permit for a "street rally", which allowed us to get one of our favorite hills closed off for the afternoon. Not having to worry about cars meant we could focus on more important things, like going faster.
Jeff Scott wonders why we don't ask the village to close off streets more often.
