The trip includes two of the worlds most famous skates: the Pari-Roller and Rollers & Coquillages. The Pari-Roller is equivalent to our FNS it's just on a much bigger scale! Read a review of this skate posted a few years ago. In terms of speed and atmosphere the R & C is like our Roller Stroll - but again much bigger!
We have several new additions this year!

After the Pari-Roller: An informal meet up for food and drinks at the Pari-Roller end point
The addition of a freestyle/slalom clinic, exact details TBC
