Friday Night Skate
The Friday Night Skate Tour is quite a popular pastime in Amsterdam. Every Friday, loads of people converge together with their skates and take a group tour of Amsterdam, spanning around 20km. For the benefit of those who have done it earlier, the skate route varies every Friday to keep things interesting. It's really quite an exhilarating experience to zoom down the ultra-smooth asphalt roads, seeing the sights as you go. For safety purposes, the roads are usually blocked to avoid accidents from oncoming traffic. Additionally, there's a medical crew skating along to help with first aid purposes, in case someone gets injured while skating. You can go along with your friends on the Friday night Skate and feel the thrill of riding with the pack as you tear down the roads of Amsterdam. It's truly an enjoyable experience provided you meet the regulations of the organisation. Friday Night Skate requires no charge. It is held every Friday at 20.00 hrs. The Friday Night Skate starting point is right in front of the former Eye Film Institute near the start of the main park area coming from Leidseplein.
