The FISC Wednesday skate is a beginner/ intermediate level skate. There are two loops, the first loop is 4-5 miles and is relatively flat. The second loop is about 7 miles and includes some hills. Both loops include a stop for refreshments and start and end in the parking lot. The skates are run and led by members of the National Skate Patrol (NSP). The NSP members safely lead the skaters thru the streets calling out hazards and a sweep ensures no one is left behind. Helmets and all protective gear is encouraged. Fun for all ages, everyone welcome. The Wednesday skate is our largest and most social skate. Afterwards we stop at Page's for food and drinks.
Skating lessons can be provided by appointment, contact Mike for info.
We do not skate if it's raining or the streets are wet. Check this page for updates before heading out.
The skate starts from a public parking lot on Orchard St (not Orchard Lake Road). Look for the FISC banner. Orchard Street is off Farmington Road, one light south of Grand River. It is behind Fitness 19 in the Farmington Shopping Center.
