    Does anyone know where we can rent skates? I don't own any, but would absolutely LOVE to be a part of this!

    What safety gear is required, and where can we get them? Helmet, knee pads, lights, stuff like that?

    Thanks!

      Hi Beth -
      The safety question is quite a serious one.
      This is one of those revealing questions where by if you have to ask ... maybe you shouldn't take part in this one-
      if you are a competent safe skater ie you know how to break confidently and you have your gear... then you can consider taking part... night skating on roads with this lot is safe but not for newby skaters.
      The summer night skating is better for new skaters.

    • Venkat

      ok, as long as there's at least one host :) Would like to avoid situations where no body volunteers & participants don't know whom to contact.

    • Joanna

      If that situation would happen I promise to cancel or delete it ... because I think it pointless arranging events if attendees aren't willing to introduce themselves as well as being introduced :-/ we'll see how it goes ;-)
