3:00pm  Gathering at hotel
3:30pm  "Nice to Meet You, Hon" Skate
In this first skate of the 2016 Baltimore Skate Weekend we will tour around the Inner Harbor in a clockwise direction. It promises to be a scenic skate and we will never be far away from the water. Surfaces will vary from wonderfully smooth blacktop and concrete to less wonderfully smooth bricks, wooden planking, and cobblestones.
We will be taking the FREE water taxi from Canton Waterfront Park to Tide Point and to board this boat YOU MUST HAVE FOOTWEAR OTHER THAN SKATES.
Route: Easy 2 hours 8 miles Click here for the route map

7:30pm  Friday Night Skate
Skate downtown Baltimore, with the midpoint stop at the Peabody Heights Brewery tasting room.  We'll see some history while skating the bricks of Old Town Mall, seeing the repurposed historic American Brewery.  We'll skate gently downhill through Clifton Park, and run through Patterson Park.  We'll stop to see Charm City Skate Park before a soft ending in Fells Point, for pizza and beer at BOP.
