Every summer there is a super fun skate event organised in Rotterdam: Wednesday Night Skate. On five Wednesday evenings skaters conquer the known streets in Rotterdam, as the Coolsingel, Kralingse Bos and Maasboulevard. The 13 kilometer course is suitable for all (experienced) skaters, roller skates and inline skates. Also a lot of parents skating along with their kids.
After each tour there’s a two hours long celebration with activities including a real Roller Disco, DJ’s and several skate demonstrations. The departure and festive (skate) activities are at the Binnenrotte, also known as the Market Square next to Blaak station. From my own experience I can say that this event is great fun (and sportive), where 40,000 to 50,000 skaters join each year! Enjoy!
