About The Event
Evening skate in Leeds city centre on bank holiday Monday.
This session will offer lots of tips for folks with less experience with outdoor skating, so the pace will be deliberately slow.
We will meet outside The Tetley at 7pm and set off on our street skate at 7.30pm.
We suggest you RSVP so we can contact you for any last minute changes of plan.
You will need all your own equipment and wear everything you need to feel safe. All outdoor spaces are different!
*Small bag with shoes and water
Parking : free on street parking is available after 6pm on Hunslet Road
RGG aims to create safe spaces for Roller skaters of varying experience levels, so you are welcome if you are new to street skating. We usually ensure that a skater who knows the route is at the back of the street skate so that no one gets left behind.
That said we would expect that you follow the below recommendations:
Whilst Roller Girl Gang team members who attend outdoor meetups will try and keep participants safe, all skating activities are at your own risk, as it would be if you were skating alone.
Outdoor meetups are not coaching sessions, they are social meetups and whilst RGG team members may give some skating advice, it is purely at their discretion.
Participants must ensure they are both well enough to skate and have the skills to skate in the location where the meetup is being held. (Please note that whilst we try to stick to a fairly flat route, Leeds City Centre is hilly, has uneven pavements and parts of the route may mean you need to skate in the road, or on a cycle lane).
You do not need to complete the entire route, If you do decide to leave the group for any reason, we would appreciate it if you ensure that someone staying in the group is aware that you are leaving, or that you wait until the next stop so that no one panics that you have disappeared!.
If at any point you do not feel able to skate to the required standard, we recommend you remove your skates. This action is at your discretion and you must not rely on a team member to tell you to do so.
