The rollerblade photo shows only a couple of Sunday rollerbladers - poor choice of photo, as in fact there are around ten thousand rollerbladers of all ages who participate in a fast-paced, three hour, 12-15 kilometre circuit of the city on Friday nights from 10pm, unless it is raining. There is a slightly more relaxed, family-oriented alternative on Sunday afternoons, organised by Rollers-et-Coquillages [Skates and Snail shells]. The circuit is organised in advance, changes every week and is always traffic free. The Paris police force not only blocks off all roads along the route during the skate-ins, but I saw a number of the local constabulary participating with the rollers.
It was absolutely amazing to watch - the Friday night event is called Le Friday Night Fever.
