Meet across the street from Four Green Fields
We will meet at 7pm in the parking lot at Mattlaw near downtown Tampa. The address is:
304 S. Plant Ave Tampa, FL 33606
(the corner of Platt and Plant, one way streets. The address is on Plant St. but the parking lot is on Platt St.) Roll out at 7:30. Look for skaters with glowsticks across the street from the bar. This is a technical skate, and a little bit more adult oriented. We stop at a cider bar for a refresher, visit skate parks and playgrounds, and act like a bunch of kids. We will skate through downtown Tampa, Bayshore Blvd (the longest sidewalk in the country!), and historic Ybor City. The pavement is mixed, so you must be confident on your skates or used to skating in urban areas. Skate at your own risk. Mileage is anywhere from 10-15 miles. Dinner afterwards at Eddie and Sam's New York Pizza
Skate Across the Bay - Saturday, February 18, 2017
We will meet at 8:30am at the Ben T. Davis beach on the Tampa side of the causeway. This skate takes you across the bay from Tampa to Clearwater, climbing a challenging bridge (you can turn around if you're not comfortable with the bridge). Beautiful views of Tampa Bay and super sweet pavement. Total mileage is approximately 16 miles. We will eat at Whiskey Joe's afterwards.
Pajama Skate in the Dark - Saturday, February 18, 2017

Bring your family, glowsticks and pajamas and join us on Saturday night before the big event for a fun social skate at the loop.
This is a social and family-friendly skate - we will skate the loop one time (7 miles) and go out to dinner afterwards.
The social skate will gather in front of the ranger station the night before the big event. Skate with your friends and pick up your packet at the same time (this will also be your last chance to register). Please be sure everyone in your party can skate 7 miles comfortably.
What to bring:
-Please remember to bring $5 per person for after hours parking fee to Flatwoods. This fee goes directly to the county for use of the park after hours. Parking is $2 per car.
-Don't forget your helmet (mandatory, no exceptions!! Rangers want this for liability reasons – and we want it for common sense.
-A light of some sort (lights not mandatory, but a good idea if you would like to see where you're going).
