No one mentioned, but rollerblading helps. If you're just looking at your basic stride and balance for speed. Especially if you can find an uphill, you'll get a real good workout at the same time.
If you can, blade to work on your commute instead of biking.
Having played with roller hockey guys who can skate like the wind, and yet have any idea how to stop. heheh
Just don't use rollerblading as a template for anything outside of basic strides, cause it's very very different as far as edges vs wheels. But it's better than not having 24/7 ice to access.
