First Road Rave of the Season!

  • Daley Plaza

    100 W Washington St, Chicago, IL (map)

    41.883210 -87.630936

  • Look for other people on wheels at the southeast corner of Daley Plaza
  • We decided to kick off the season early this year and try a Road Rave in April. This is weather permitting, fingers crossed.

    Roadraves are street skates organized by National Skate Patrol. They happen every 1st and 3rd Friday during Summer.

    Route: 10 to 12 Miles through the city. Every skate has a different theme that will be announced shortly prior to the event.


    What to bring:

    • A helmet (Skate Patrol absolutely requires them). Wrist guards and other pads are also recommended.
    • Water (there will be none on the route).
    • Blinky lights if you have them.


    Required skill level:

    • Know how to brake
    • Comfortable skating in traffic (we skate on the streets)
    • Able to step over curbs, railroad tracks, etc.
    • Comfortable on hills

    What else:

    • Again this is organized by Skate Patrol and not by this meetup group. We will stay together as a group and don't run red lights etc.
    • You skate at your own risk. Skaters will have to sign a Waiver to attend.
    • Don't worry if you are not a fast skater. Speed will be determined by the slowest.


    We end at All-Stars Sports Bar - 205 W. Wacker. (Wacker & Wells)


    Check the Chicago NSP site for last minute updates and more information.  Raves are usually canceled by 3pm day of if bad weather is expected.

    So I plan to go if it does not rain. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed on the weather.

    I have not laced up at all this season, any idea on length on this first one? 10 feet would be ideal, but I hope it is not too long.

      About 11 Miles but we'll wait for you :) Worst case you can always being shoes and hop on the bus or train half way.
