..but no worries, you don't have to pay to come play with us!
Last year we ran into our infamous ex-Governor Blagojevich during a rave. Reason enough to dedicate a skate to him. Stops include State of Illinois Building, Federal Plaza, Oxxford Clothes Inc and most important, the place where Blago gets his hair cut.
Thanks for putting this route together, Tom!!
We'll take off from the rusty baboon at the Daley Center ( Clark and Washington ) at 7:30PM and end at the All Star Sports Bar & Grill on 555 W. Madison. They let us in with skates and it is close to the Metra and CTA.
Keep in mind that this event is organized by National Skate Patrol. That means BRING A HELMET!!, they are serious about that (bike helmet, hockey helmet or skateboard helmets are fine). Wrist guards, knee & elbow pads are suggested. Stay with the group , don't run red lights etc.
Skate at your own risk. Bring water. Be prepared to skate 12 miles, stop, turn, go over curbs, potholes, RR tracks, etc. Bring water. There will be none on the route!
Even if you are not used to skating in traffic, give it a try! We'll watch out for you and no one will be left behind.
See you there!
