Colorado man hopes his new hobby grows in popularity
Denver (KMGH) – Peter Randall is hoping more people will be interested in his new hobby.
It’s a bit like skis, a bit like rollerblades.
That is, outdoor enthusiasts have never encountered a hot day in North Cheyenne Canyon.
“I’m from Florida and have never seen anything like it,” said one hiker.
“I don’t even know how to explain it. It’s crazy, ”said another. “I have just returned from a hike. I saw a man come down the mountain on crazy roller skates.
Randall said anyone who sees him coming down the mountain asks him what he’s doing.
“Mountain Blades, Mountain Rollers, whatever anyone decides at some point to call it,” Randall said.
It doesn’t have a name, but it just means “to ride in the mountains”.
He walks and ties his legs to something he doesn’t even think of a name for.
“Great bike tire skates, mountain rollers,” Randall said.
Then he lets gravity take over.
“Stay in control, keep going down, get up, see where you want to go and keep rolling,” Randall said.
Randall says he has all the equipment, including a helmet, and has yet to be injured. A few minutes after saying this, however, he fell.
“Saint Molly. It was terrible, ”he said after stopping in the fall.
It comes with an area that connects your feet to the tires on your bike and rolls down the mountain.
“A shot is over 45 degrees. It’s more than doubled black [diamond]”said Randall.
In the end, Randall does it for fun and he wants more people to participate in the activity.
“Walking, skiing, summer skiing,” Randall said. “I’m always looking for suggestions.
