Hello Skaters (And Bikers*)!

And this year we’ve selected a brand new Midtown location for our Host Hotel so we can skate and explore different parts of the city.

HOTEL INFO – CLICK HERE

100s of Skaters are coming from all around the country and globe to join BAR 2018.

It’s a free, exciting weekend of group skates, partying, adventures, touring, exploring and experiencing New York City on skates. Party with old friends, make new ones and feel the rush of skating the City’s streets.

Enjoy the beautiful urban & natural scenery, rolling hills, historic bridges and fast straight-aways (if you like). City skating, island hopping, parks, nightlife and of course our skates through Times Square.

Central Park is also the capital of dance skating where you can join the world’s greatest skate dancers and slalom skaters (cone-heads) for a truly unique experience.

There will be skates on Thursday night, Friday afternoon, Friday night, Saturday morning, Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning. And I’m sure a couple of surprises. Come a day early and join NYC’s famous Wednesday Night Skate!  Come 2 days early and join Empire’s Tuesday Night Skate as well. There will be activities in-between skates and social gatherings at night — we will also be raffling off skates, skate bags, t-shirts, accessories and other swag from our sponsors.

* Big Apple Roll is not for beginners. BAR 2018 is for intermediate to expert skaters capable of easily handling street skating in groups, during the day and/or night, stopping and turning on all terrain, including hills, following all traffic laws.

* Cyclists are welcomed as long as they keep in mind that skaters kick-out. Therefore, bikers must give skaters adequate space at all times by riding in the back, front or side of the skaters.

Again, contact us at barinfo@bigappleroll.org if you have any questions.
