What a Drag: Use a Parachute To Workout

Yes, you've heard it before, but "What's the hardest thing about learning how to rollerblade? Telling your dad that you're gay." But when you live in San Francisco, your dad already knows. The most difficult part is trying to safely reach the bottom of these crazy hills without zipping down to an embarrassing, screaming death. Thankfully, Nike has released the SPARQ Parachute to create drag for athletes and make a lap around Golden Gate Park look like a NASA shuttle landing. Plus, now you can tackle those steep streets safely and have a parachute matching the colors of your neon green helmet and spandex. Dad would be so proud. — James Y Lee
