Road Rave!

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.
