Wed Night Advanced Skate

Fast pace, big hills, heavy traffic, 10-15 miles. Rest stops periodically. Lots of different routes. The most social advanced skate. A skater should be able to maintain a moderately fast pace of 10-15 miles per hour. Because of Washington's hilly terrain, one should have mastered at least two kinds of braking (e.g., heel braking, T-stopping, power slides, snowplowing, etc.) and be able to brake on a hill of at least 30-degrees before participating. Some skates will go down very long, windy hills with lead skaters reaching speeds of 30 mph or more. Maneuverability on hills and control at all times is very important as the skate travels on roadways which contain hazards, such as cars, bad pavement, pedestrians and other skaters. The ability to stop or avoid obstacles is critical.

Please see the description under Weekly Skates for further details.
