Friday Night Skate

If you’re looking for exercise on holiday without having to fork out for a gym pass or a hot yoga session, then how about a Friday night rollerblade through the city streets? If you have your own wheels, this weekly meet is free to all and starts in the Vondelpark, just next to the Flying Pig Uptown hostel. It then goes on a circuit taking in the canals and the harbour, before returning to the park. Find out more about the where, the when and the theme, online.
