New Meetup: Freestyle Session and Skate to Wicker Park

Announcing a new Meetup for Windy City Inline Skaters!

What: Freestyle Session and Skate to Wicker Park

When: Sunday, March 14,[masked]:00 PM

Castaways @ North Ave. Beach
1603 N Lake Shore Dr
Chicago, IL 60610

It is going to be nice out on the weekend!! Time to dust off your skates and join us for our first official street skate of the season. Here is the plan:

Meet by the Boathouse at North Avenue Beach at 2:00 pm. We will skate cones for about an hour.
At 3:00PM we will skate to Wicker Park. We will be taking Webster all the way from Lincoln Park to Damen. I've already done this once this year and it is a pretty smooth skate, about 3 Miles. We are planning to get food at Jerry's on 1938 W. Division Street. That place is really awesome. It's close to the blue line if you don't feel like skating home from there.

Join us for the freestyle session and/or the Wicker Park skate. Longboarders, skateboarders or bikes are also welcome.

Things to keep in mind:

  • We will skate mostly on the streets. We won't go fast but you have to be comfortable in traffic. Beginners are welcome to join us from 2:00 to 3:00 by the boathouse. We will be happy to help you out even if you are completely new to skating. We don't recommend the skate to Wicker Park if you are a beginner but you are welcome to come along on a bike.

  • Skate at your own risk.
  • Bring shoes to be able to go into the restaurant
  • Daylight savings time starts this Saturday. So make sure to change your clock and be there on time =)

See you there!
