Every Friday throughout the year ( if the streets are dry) we'll make a skate tour through Amsterdam of about 20 kilometers. Anyone can join in, free of charge. Participation is allowed under the condition that you are a skilled skater who is able brake well. If it turns out you cannot keep up or if you are not skilled enough, you will be asked to leave the tour and practise more before you join again.
The volunteers do their best to make every skate tour through the city safe. Despite of all our safety measurs, you always skate at your own risk! The organisers of the tour, the volunteers or the Skate! Foundation do not accept any responsibility for injuries or damages.
The use of a helmet, wrist-, elbow- and knee protection is strongly recommended!

Gathering: Fridays 20.00 h (20.15 h in the winter)
The FNS (fridaynightskate)-route is a different one every week. We combine the busy city-center with more quiet parts, ultra-smooth asphalt with occasional bumpy cobbles. This sometimes means sprinting ahead and sometimes waving at stunned tourists and other pedestrians. One thing is always the same, however: you skate to places you might never go on your own. Its unique. Click on the site www.fridaynightskate.com and you’ll see the route we’ll take this Friday! You'll find most of the FNS routes on www.afstandmeten.nl, a site using Google Maps.
New t-shirts The new 2010/2011 t-shirts are in. Look here.
If you and your friends love to skate or would like to learn you've come to the right place! All skaters and levels are welcome! Inline Skating, sometimes called "Rollerblading" is a great sport. When done safely it's a great way to get some excersize, some fresh air and meet new friends or connect with old ones all while having some fun.
