Toronto Bladers is an inline skating group for intermediate & advanced skaters dedicated to getting out, inline skate, and have fun. We roll anywhere as long as the wheels allow it from fixed skate park locations, 5 km to 50 km rides, we roll 1 to 3 times a week, winter included because the wheel is mightier than the friction.
Events are announced by email, one week prior to the date (check here) but feel free to suggest and or request events!
Season opens on the third week of March until the last day of November, but we still skate all year round, winter included.
