Next Meetup

Sunday Morning City Skate
Every Sunday morning May through September (weather permitting) we meet up at JFK Park in Cambridge for a 6 to 8 mile skate through the streets of Cambridge, Somerville and parts of Boston. Destinations vary widely and may include city neighborhoods, City Squares such as Harvard and Kendall, Harvard and MIT campuses and bike paths on both sides of the river. This is not a beginner skate. It's designed as an entry-level city skate so there are some points prospective participants should keep in mind. We do skate in the streets so you will need to be comfortable on your skates in light city traffic. We do try to keep to the more quiet roads but traffic is never completely predictable. You should have good stopping skills. The city does present a wide variety of obstacles and the ability to control your speed and stop is important. It is important that you are comfortable negotiating minor road obstacles such as curbs, sewer grates, sand or dirt and substandard pavement. We sometimes go down small hills. During our official season, all skates are patrolled by NSP (National Skate Patrol). We usually finish skating and return to the park at around 12:30. Many of us have lunch together somewhere close to the meetup site. Every skater is responsible for making decisions about their own safety and ability to skate.

We welcome those who know how to skate (and want to try street skating for the first time) to experts - of every age. Our club has members from many countries, a nice mix of male and female, young and young-at-heart.

To join our skates, you must know how to stop and be comfortable skating on streets for at least 8 miles.
