If you skate in a freezeway, will you freeze in a skateway?

A bike lane in the summer "that transitions into one of the world's first curb-side skating lanes"? This is the best way to turn a five-month winter into something really fun.

A brilliant idea has been proposed that could potentially cause residents and tourists to look forward to the elongated and draining Canadian winters. As soon as next year, the city of Edmonton might be creating an 11km route (almost 7 miles, if you're an American) that pedestrians can use to skate around the city.

In the proposal for "The Freezeway," landscape architect Matt Gibbs suggested connecting two old rail corridors.
