Windy City Skaters is a group open to anyone who likes to move around on wheels. While most of us are on inline skates (rollerblades) we also welcome skateboarders and long boarders.

Chicago has tons of cool places to skate. If you haven't discovered them yet you will with this group. Windy City Skaters is a diverse group of friendly, fun loving people. This group has been going strong since 2008 and keeps getting bigger every season. 

Some of the things we have done during the past few seasons are:

    Organized inline street skates (themed city tours)

    Inline freestyle slalom practice at the lakefront

    Critical Mass on Inline skates, longboards and bikes

    Inline Marathons and the American Cancer Society Walk and Roll event

    Beginner lessons

    Skating workshops

We are open for any ideas that bring people together to socialize while skating. We hope to see you out there, no matter what your skill level is, we'd love to have you.
