The Rideau Canal is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and becomes the world’s largest skating rink at 7.8 km long.
I’ve never skated it. The last time I skated, at all, was while I still participated in roller derby.
Skating on ice, at that time, was terrible. It felt like my skates only wanted to slide sideways. Maybe the skate’s blades needed sharpening or maybe I was too used to being in roller skates. Roller skates can’t slide to the side (Well, they can but you’re usually doing that as a way of stopping).
I should probably give the Rideau Canal skating rink a try but I’ll get my skates sharpened and see if that was the problem.
