When: Saturday, July 13


Start: 8 or 9 a.m., depending on when you get there and how long you plan to skate.


Where: Elm Creek. Meet at the trail head by Lifetime Fitness parking lot in Champlain. Take Highway 169 to 120th Ave. (Target will be on the east and Lifetime Fitness to the west.) Take 120th Ave. West past Lifetime Fitness to the northwest corner of their parking lot.  Click here for more specific directions. All skill levels are welcome, multiple pacelines will form, and different distances will be skated by different pacelines.
