New York Wednesday Night Skate

Messagepar eurolad » Lun 09/04/2018 16:01

Was just in NY for a visit, managed to join the Wednesday Night skate (https://www.facebook.com/WednesdayNightSkateNYC2.0/)...
Great to skate in Manhattan, though just a small group and completely un-protected (simply street skating among the traffic - NY Taxi's don't seem to like skaters! :? ).
Skated around 15km, taking in Times Square along the route - quite an experience, I can recommend if you're ever in the city on a Wednesday evening between April and October.
We met with Thibault (who moved to NY a few years ago) there too - see left of the image - we're on the right!

A great bunch of people to skate with and thankfully none of them were Trump supporters! gfhdfg

Times Square is open for traffic these days too... :wink:
Already home by now, but we did also a little of the 'green way' along the Hudson too. I have some contacts from that group in case anyone is going and wants to skate with them, they mentioned some other places and groups they skated with too, not just the Wednesday night session...
