Information and Safety
Welcome to Cambridge Skaters!
We're a cosmopolitan bunch of skaters (inlines, quads and ice)
with one thing in common: We love to skate.

Please be aware that at all events organised by or hosted by Cambridge Skaters

you skate at your own risk!
We (the marshals) will do our best to make the skate a fun and safe experience,
but responsibility for your safety rests entirely with you.
