Solstice Roll Out
Join us on our 4th Annual Summer Solstice Roll Out around Leeds city centre. Parts of the route are hilly and we will be crossing roads and skating on the street. Please RSVP and we will send the route out the day before so you can plan where you may like to skate or walk. Recommended for 18+

About The Event
The Summer Solstice falls this year on a Wednesday, so we can meet in Corn Exchange Square, outside the Corn Exchange
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:
As the route is along roads and involves hills and is due to start and finish late, we recommend this roll out is for adults. Please keep an eye on our events and social media for family friendly roll outs.
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.
