This is Philadelphia’s annual three-day inline skating bonanza. Save the date!
Skate the city, and beyond, with hundreds of fellow enthusiasts. We’ll be running skates Friday afternoon through Sunday afternoon. It’s free! Come for one or all of the skates.
All skates begin at the top of the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art (east side).
This event is for intermediate to expert skaters. We skate in the streets. Skate distances range from 12-20+ miles. You must be capable of navigating through traffic, up & down curbs, over rough pavement, and up & down hills. Helmets are required. There will be a water and bathroom stop on each skate.
Since the Philly Free Skate is a free event, there is no "official" venue for any of our evenings. However, this is Philadelphia and we plan to show you some of the hot spots. Friday and Saturday nights we'll hit great bars within walking distance of the hotel.
Friday Night - “Kite And Key” will be hosting us. Great beer selection and the food to go with it!
