FDR Park, Philadelphia, PA

September 25, 2009

We listened to a great podcast on the way to Philly, and then our first stop was FDR Park.  It failed to meet Logan’s expectations.  According to him, it looks nothing like it does on videos and video games.  (I don’t mean to be unkind, but it looks downright sketchy to me.)  Furthermore, Bam Margera wasn’t there, although he is rumored to frequent the park. Where could he be?

Despite these disappointments, Logan rode the bowls.  The day ended when his wheel snagged a cigarette butt, and he joined the ranks of so many skaters who have left some skin at FDR.  

As he hobbled out, we were hailed by three BMX riders, who had seen the website printed on our car and checked it with their phones.  Corey W, Dirty Sanchez, and Paul Horen (who rides for Animal Bikes) gave us some words of encouragement and recommended their favorite parks around the country.  Thanks guys!  Keep in touch!

    I know nothing about skate parks, but this one looks really cool. Logan, how’s the arm feel after that spill? Lookin good.

      The arm was OK, but we had to ice the knee. Kneepads at concrete parks from now on!
