The very popular 3.2 mile workout and walking path around the perimeter of Greenlake is divided into two halves: one for feet and one for wheels. Roller blades seem to outnumber bicycles on the wheeled side. This woman has her routine down to the basic take along needs: water and music. Most roller bladers wear protective knee, elbow and wrist guards, as well as helmets. They go at high speed, so a crash and burn would really hurt. To see more of them and to see the path instructions that are embedded into the sidewalk in bronze lettering and symbols, see my More Seattle Stuff page.
