It will be a slow pace and is suitable for advanced beginners.

Helmets are required for this event!

We confirmed that longboards will also be allowed on the skate route. Yay!

Hope to see everyone there. It will be a nice way to start the season!

    There will be a 10 x 10 red canopy tent with chairs for us. Look for it, next to Windy City Rollers.
