Beginner Harvard University Skate, Sunday July 26, 2015

Jun  will lead a short skate for beginners on a mostly flat terrain around Harvard University Campus and streets.  This skate is intended to be a gentle introduction to beginner inline skaters who’d like to venture beyond skating in courts and rinks.  We’ll start at the newly renovated plaza in front of the Harvard University Science Center, and end at Darwin’s on Cambridge St. for snacks and refreshments.  Skate will be cancelled if it rains.

Date: Sunday, July 26, 2015
Time: 9:00 AM
Location: We’ll meet at the concrete benches in the middle of the newly renovated plaza (near the Harvard University Science Center).
Distance: About 1 to 1.5 miles.
Prerequisite Skills: Participants should already be comfortable with basic striding, and stopping on a mild incline.

Getting to the Skate

If driving, you can park on most streets since metered spots are free and there are no resident-only parking restriction on Sundays. For example, Broadway, Cambridge St, Prescott St, and Quincy St are all good options. (Click on map below to see larger version)

If taking the T, take the red line subway to Harvard Sq, then walk through the main Harvard University campus (toward Cambridge St) to get to the plaza area. (Click on map below to see larger version)
