Canal Rideau Rideau Canal

The ice skating is a great activity to do in the winter. And if it is then it is to skate on the largest skating rink in the world! Neither more nor less. Ok, so here we go!

The destination is Ottawa - Canada's capital, h - 200 km from Montreal, a city very beautiful and full of tourist attractions. But, unfortunately, we only saw the parliament through the car window and the rest was for the next visit, after all the goal is to skate. There is a canal that runs through the city called Ottawa Rideau Canal, which in winter becomes a huge skating rink with 8 kilometers long.

The trip started well quiet - always difficult to accommodate the children and junk the car - then it was just enjoying the scenery ... white. Once there, we parked near parliament, where there is an office building which provides free parking on weekends. That's right, free! From there we walked to ground zero of the Rideau Canal.Patins de Hockey

I impressive structure built for skaters. The stairs to go down to the frozen bed of the canal were lined rubber - to preserve the blades of skates - and several banks were placed for you to put on your skates. Along the canal, several cabins fitted offering every kind of service: skate rental, restrooms, food and even a place to warm up, if you need it. The food and skate rental are paid, the rest is free.

Hockey Skates

Artistic Skates

At first you need to get used to the ice as a frozen river is not as smooth as one rink shopping or as a hockey arena. Agent but soon gets used to the irregularities of the ice and the snow. It is much easier if u use hockey skates, blades since figure skating has those claws in the front that can hook into some ice ledge.Será que ninguém pega?

Did anyone catch them?

The next challenge is to figure out what is the limit of each. Some of our friends covered 16 km covering the entire track and back. To limit my daughter was almost 2 km and at times she was guinchada. To my son was 50 meters, duly supported by his father, in which case the limit was my column, after is not easy to skate down holding a child who can not stand in the ice. The solution was to rent a sled, which in addition to carrying children, still served as a support to help balance and also to take the boots.

The question of the boots is a separate chapter. What to do with the boots, after putting the skids?Pausa para se esquentar Not find any rental service cabinets, but as good immigrants, we decided to focus on what the locals do. Well, they leave the boots under the seat or in a corner, and voila! Full trust. We are Brazilians, we can not even have that level of trust - take boots on the sled.

Pause for warmth

Anyway, skated a few meters - 2500 meters actually - accelerating step to achieve some friends earlier. And after arriving there, hit a bit peckish. No problem, because in the middle of the ice had a stall hot dog. And more! With a choice of vegetarian sausage. The parade left the kids to eat cold, but just beside the track had a heated chalet to warm the bones. Before we make our way back still had time to make some videos and take pictures.

Jonny Weir, figure skater extraordinaire.

Last night I was flippin' channels, and came across a figure skating competition.
Jonny Weir totally blew my mind. I got goose bumps watching his performance.
I was also totally certain he's gay. I was like "You GO Jonny Queer! You strike one for the good guys!"
He skated to an original, full orchestra piece written by a friend for him specifically for his performance. It was about struggle between good and evil. Very heavy, dark and romantic.
His deliciously over the top costume was white on one side, with feathers, and black on the other

    Jan 20, 2012 by starshipsbelinda | Posted in Ice Skating

    So I m 14 and i just signed up to ice skating lessons at the medibank ice house in melbourne? Does anyone know that place? Well I was wondering what I should wear to hmy first lesson. I know that I shouldn t wear jeans but that s just about it. I m in adults 1. And is skate rental included in the term fee or do i have to buy my own pair? Also where can you buy skates and skate wear in Melbourne and how do you know if they re good quality or not? From what I ve read, adults 1 is part of the aussie skate program just for ppl 15 or over. A lady advised me to go into adults 1 instead of basics 1 …

    • I know the Icehouse - I skate there. ;) Skate hire is included with the term fees - just arrive a bit before the lesson starts, head over to skate hire and get a pair. You can get your own pair if you want, however - if you want to advance more quickly, I d recommend buying your own skates because they will fit better and be a lot more comfortable. As for what to wear, I d recommend leggings or any other pants that are thin, flexible and long (but not long enough to trip you over!). And on top, just wear a t-shirt or a thin long sleeved top with a light jacket (it can have a hood, but if …
