Baltimore Skate Weekend 2013

BELIEVE it, the rumors are true, hon...We are going back to Baltimore this year!

B'more Skate Weekend is an exciting weekend of skating on the streets of Charm City.

This is a FREE event; there is no registration required. You are responsible for getting yourself there, your lodging, your food and your helmets. We will lead the skates. Mother Nature will provide the great weather.

Not content to simply host Skate DC Weekend, The WAR skaters use the same format to share the hidden gems of Baltimore with you.

Many unique routes will bring miles of city streets, vistas, bridges, hills, brews, and a chance to discover Baltimore's scenery and skate on some great new pavement.

It's a social-street-skating weekend, not a race.   Helmets required.

Please visit our main website for detailed information.

    Once again pulled off a great event, with amazingly nice days, minimal rain and the sleek and efficient planning. Those that came from out of town enjoyed the cheapest city skate destination, even though it had the coolest hotel. The skate routes were interesting and varied, with each showcasing a different side of Baltimore, whether is was the scenic Gwenn Falls valley, the historic fells point, the funky Hamden Neighborhood, Historic Fells point, the free water taxi, and nearly every skate included an opportunity to sample a freshly poured local beverage.
