The free Monday Night Skate, started in 1993, is the largest recreational outdoor skate in Sacramento. Whether you like inline skates, traditional skates, skateboards, or scooters we invite you to join us on our roller route around downtown Sacramento.
Skating is a fun, low-impact aerobic sport. It uses 570 calories an hour while bringing back your childhood.
Our group meets at the parking lot at 3rd and S Streets every Monday evening at 7:00 p.m. It then leaves on a 6 to 12 mile skate. For variety, the route changes from Monday to Monday.
