What we're about

This group is an extension to the Beach Bladers, a rollerblade club that reaches from Miami to Jupiter. Check us out at www.beachbladers.com. With this meetup group we are trying to reach more members and add more events at different locations. If you are looking for ways to improve your fitness, inline skating is a fantastic outdoor recreation sport.

Right now we have several skates scheduled every week, and on many skates throughout the month we encourage beginner and novice skaters to join us. The Beach Bladers also provides free skating lessons / instruction for beginners and skate clinics for all levels of skaters. We also like to socialize before and after our skates and even schedule various parties/barbeques throughout the year. Let us know what level skater you are and where you would like to skate.

Meetup members can join us on a few skates without paying membership dues. However, there is a $25/yr single ($40/yr family) membership to join the Beach Bladers. Those dues entitle you to a monthly newsletter subscription, free scheduled Beach Bladers picnics, National Skate Patrol support, and discounts on skates and equipment at select local stores.

Skate Wilton Manors Ft. Lauderdale

Colohatchee Park

This new skate will be in and around an old and by most accounts interesting Ft. Lauderdale community known as Wilton Manor.

The 1940’s and 1950’s saw a bunch of entrepreneurs take a small group of farms, platte subdivisions and sold house lots cheap to develop a community. They fronted money for retail establishments to help the community along. They also donated land to the City for public buildings and fended off attempted takeovers by both Oakland Park and Fort Lauderdale.

Wilton Manors, the "Island City", was incorporated in 1947. It is bordered on the north by the North Fork of the Middle River and the city of Oakland Park (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oakland_Park,_Florida); to the south, the boundaries include the South Fork of the Middle River and the city of Fort Lauderdale (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fort_Lauderdale,_Florida); the eastern terminus of the city limits extend to near Federal Highway (US 1 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._Route_1)); and the westernmost boundary reaches Interstate 95 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interstate_95).

Our plan is to meet at 9:00 am and roll at 9:15 am. We will skate the Middle River area. After the skate we can meetup for some social time and brunch at one of the many local shops Wilton Manors has to offer.

Tuesday Night Skate at Spanish River Athletic Park

Spanish River Athletic Park

NOTE: Due the sudden increase in Corvid-19 infections, we are suspending Sunday meetups for the next three weeks or until infection rate returns to lower than 6%. We will continue Tuesday evening skates but ask that everyone' regardless of their vaccination status, wear a mask at all times.

The closed area of the park is safe for night skating. This is a 3 mile loop inside the park complex on bike and walking paths with some room for social distancing with little auto traffic or hills. We are asking the everyone regardless of vaccination status, wear a mask at least for the next 3 weeks.

We are in the middle of a public health crisis that could be mitigated if everyone got vaccinated and/or wore a mask,. we would stand a better chance overcoming this virus.

Until that time we are going to pause Sundays for the cause..

Because it's a closed loop you can skate at your own pace and not be more than a mile from the starting point.

We'll meet at 6:30 PM and skate at 6:45 PM .

Schedule:

6:30 PM Meetup in Parking Lot

6:45 PM Skate Loop

7:45 PM Social Time

Directions:Take I-95 to exit 48 A westbound on Spanish River Blvd. continue on over I-95 (it's the 2nd stop light after the bridge) Turn left into the park and then left at the next 2 stop signs. Go about 300 ft and park.

Halloween Skate with Super Hero Rollers

Charnow Park

Come join us for our Super Hero costume skate at Hollywood Beach ~ back by popular demand with all three South Florida Skate Clubs participating.

We'll meet at 6:00 pm in front of Charnow Park by the beach and start skating shortly thereafter!

We will start skating on the cycle path on the Boardwalk headed North first, then back south towards Hallandale to the other end of the Broadwalk and back to our starting point where we will pick a place to go eat & be merry!

There is a big 5 story yellow & blue parking garage at 300 Connecticut Street next to the park where we meet. We all park on 5th level and come down together.

If you are coming from the South, it's about 3/4 of a mile North of Hollywood Blvd (Exit 20 on I-95).

If you are coming from the North, it's about 3/4 of a mile South of Sheridan Street (Exit 21 on I-95).

There is also metered street parking on the side streets.

All the meters take dollar bills, coins and credit cards.

Wearing safety gear including a Helmet, Wrist Guards, Knee Pads and Elbow Pads is always recommended.

Always drink plenty of water before and during skating to stay hydrated.

Please RSVP so you don't get left behind and we can better plan the activities afterwards.

Call or Text Daniela[masked] if you are running late!

It's a good idea to call for a weather update or check our meetup site message board before leaving to see if there are any changes since it may be raining where you live but not at Hollywood Beach or vice versa.

Hope to see you there!
