Canberra Inline skaters group

Dust off your old inline skates or buy a new pair. An old school friend informs me that a new social skating group is being formed in Canberra for regular gatherings. Sounds like a lot of fun...

"The weather is now perfect for early evening inline skating. When I lived in Sydney back in the late 90's I was a member of Sydney Bladers, and the group is still going strong today. I want to start a social inline skate group right here in Canberra. I suggest we have a weekly meet up, and blade for a few hours, then end with a drink at a club or pub. We have lots of great paths and places to explore on blades. If you are keen, join the group and get in touch with me. I will be holding the first skate on Wednesday 27th"

Turn up if you would like to skate, and check the fb group for the event details.

I have never been there but I would think DeSalis Knob would be near Cuppacumbalong...
