Imagine rolling by the Eiffel Tower or Notre Dame with nothing but streetlight and moonlight guiding you. Friday night skate, as it's referred to, is a different way to see the city of lights. About 1,200 people show up for this event that starts at 10pm at Montparnasse Tower, and the route changes each week to make it interesting.
The police even have a webpage dedicated to this and will post the course a few days before, so drivers know which parts of the city to avoid. No novices, please. This is serious skating for those of us who do it on a regular basis. The crowd moves quickly, and skaters sometimes need to brake quickly too.
