Inline class with beginner
Posted March 24th, 2011 - 9:27 pm by from Paris, France (Permalink)
Hi everybody,

I bought some skates today and I can't wait to try for the first time this weekend. My big goal is to do the fridays roller rando in Paris soon.

So far I did some ice skating, skiing and windsurfing. Not sure if this is going to help a lot though.

The biggest challenge will be braking I think. Tried in the store but it didn't work very well ;)

Are you a motivated skater willing to share your knowledge and to have a good time ??? I've got plenty of time this weekend.

Just give me a call 06 67 12 30 07 or write.

See you
Uwe

Hey Uwe !
Good idea you had to buy roller skates :) I'm not sure I could teach anything (my level is not that good...) but I could join you (not this week end though) for some roller practice and start with the sunday roller rando soon, which is it's quite easy (as soon as you can brake indeed).
See you !

Sabine,

Thanks for your message. As you seem to have done the roller rando I'm sure you know better how to brake than me!

Just watched some tutorial videos on the internet ;) Maybe I will have the time to try this week.

Let me know when you're available. Hope to skate with you soon!

Greg,

I didn't practice this weekend. But I'd love to do a rando. How about next weekend?

Also we could try to meet during the week as it is getting dark later now.

Take care !

Hi Uwe,

Did you practice this week-end ? How was it ?
I bought myself new inlines in Germany two weeks ago. They are great. We could organise a short rando in Paris.
Take care !

Good Stuff!
welcome in the team ;)

For a beginner roller rando
I would advise sunday afternoon 2pm at "place de la Bastille"
There is families, and smooth riding
around 300 people maybe

Posted March 29th, 2011 - 9:42 pm by from Paris, France (Permalink)
Okay, I will be there. Anyone else ?

Maybe we can meet a bit earlier so somebody could teach me some basic braking!?

Hope to see you all Sunday
Uwe

I'm interested in join you too ! I just have to manage to get back my rollers before this weekend :))
I'm not in Paris for a long time (since winter in fact) so I have not still had the opportunity to make the rides. Both tempt me well, the ride of Friday evening and that of Sunday afternoon.
See you !

Who wants to join in?

Hi,

It's been many months since I wore on-line rollers but I used to go skating Friday nights with Paris Roller.

I can brake in a meter whatever speed we are. Don't have super style but like to glide and swallow kilometers.

So I'd like to join some of you and may be teach at least show how you have to bend on right rear heel.

Let me know
C.U.

I've been teaching roller skating to a lot of people. For 1hour lesson for 1 person the price is 15. I don't live my life on it, it just help me to renew my weels and other roller skate stuff.
If anyone is interested to learn basics or more advanced (backward skating, slalom, avoidment ect..) contact me...
