I have been skating for 5 years in Barcelona, where I live.
Next 30th august I will arrive to Düsseldorf for 3 weeks (untill 17th sept) for an intensive german course, and I would like to join your skate routes.
Could you please inform me when and where do you meet during the week and also on weekends ?
Thanks & regards,

sure - the regular round starts every Thursday 20.00 at Burgplatz (you will find us very easily at the Rhein waterfront steps near the tower in the center of the city).
30.8. is just tooo late for one of the most beautiful skate tours in Germany: on 28.8. there is a 130km skate tour covering all the pictures you have seen in your Germany travel book: castles, Loreley, small villages, ...
have a look at http://www.rhine-on-skates.de/english.html
If I could convince you to change flights to join this really great skate event, just bring a tent and let us know

so you have to stick to the pictures - and the skate tours beside the Rhein (=Rhine) around Düsseldorf, where the river is different from the upper middle Rhine valley, because its flat here (good for skating:-)
I just compile a list from our skate calendar with some short information about the events 4U:
3.9. a very small group is going to the free skate night at Münster 120km NE of Düsseldorf - if you wish to join: ask around at 2.9.
5.9. some are going to the Weser-Inline-Tour a 100km tour in the north of germany, 350km N of Düsseldorf. The tour is 41Euro and you have to register at http://www.weser-inline-tour.de/. If you wish to join: post a message to http://www.dusfor.de/modules.php?op=mod ... c&topic=99 to find someone to give you a lift (Sorry, I´m not going).
5.9. Alternatively you can race the super sprint inline distance of 4km in Düsseldorf at the Kö-Lauf. It is 10Euro and you have to register at http://www.koe-lauf.de/ (no good for me - I´m a long distance racer)
7.9. A group of 10-15 is going to the Frankfurt Tuesday Night Skate, one of the biggest german night skates - and surely the quickest: average speed is 25km/h with an option of a 6km high speed extra round at 30km/h and above. The skate night is free, but you have to calculate 20Euro for bus/gasoline. If you wish to join: post a message to: http://www.dusfor.de/modules.php?op=mod ... &topic=102
10.9. Skate Night in Aachen: only 15km, but in a very nice, small and very old (Carl the great was crowned here in 800pC) city 80km SW of Düsseldorf. If you wish to join: just send me a PM.
10.9.-12.9. Ehrmann Inline Tour in the south of germany 580km S of Düsseldorf. It is 120Euro and you have to register at http://www.ehrmann-inlinetour.de/ (don´t know anyone going there)
12.9. If you like to race an inline marathon, you should try Cologne (you know: the famous city with the big church:-). It´s not the quickest race in germany because you have to cross so many tram splints, but the people in Cologne are well known for the open and warm hearted atmosphere.It is 60Euro and you have to register at http://www.koeln-marathon.de/ (or wait for someone who doesn´t go) (I go)
12.9. Alternative you can race the Rotterdam marathon the same day. It is 16Euro and you have to register at www.rotterdamonwheels.nl. If you wish to join: post a message to http://www.dusfor.de/modules.php?op=mod ... c&topic=71 to find people who travel to Rotterdam.
U thought to do anything else but skating? Forget it
