Inline skaters mob Paris streets


A pack of in-line skaters take over the streets of Paris every Friday at 10 p.m. If you'd like to join this gang of rolling Parisians, come to the area beneath the Montparnasse tower at 9:30 p.m.

For three hours you can tour the city while vigorously "getting your skate on." The route covers thirty kilometers and you'll meet people from all of Paris - and beyond. This group of thrill-seekers is always up for a good time, but if the streets are wet or if it's raining the week's ride will not roll.

Should you need to rent in-line skates for the Friday night ride consult with Nomade Shop. They will rent skates to you, but because of the logistics of the transaction and schedules and such -- you will probably need to rent the skates for a day and a half. I think you'll pay about 9 euros for the full day and less for the half-day.

View their Web site or visit the shop at 37 Bld Bourdon, near Place Bastille, to get more details about purchasing or renting in-line skates. I've heard there are other places to rent skates. If you know about alternate places, please leave a comment (below) with the information.

Skater's beware! Remember that the Metro closes at 12:30 a.m. If you return to the Montparnasse starting point at 1 a.m. you will need to take a bus or taxi, or walk home --- unless you are one of those automobile owners that we hear so much about.

METRO: lines 4, 6, 12 and 13 to
Montparnasse Bienvenue
