  inline cruising on the promenade
by goglobe

It's so common to go inline skating in French cities and towns, and here in Nice in particular, in the long stretch of the Nice promenade, some 7 km of level runs.
The promenade actually has a bike path and occasionally motor bikes run along and park themselves near the beach. Inline skaters have a free flow amid the pedestrians as the place is not densed with people all the time.
Wear a pair of sunglasses and a sunshade. One weather tip to note: as wind is so strong from the west, going eastward is a lot smoother and faster.

Equipment: Just an ordinary pair of inlines and smart wear for outdoor sports. No need for protective gear if you are not into extreme running.

Directions: A leisurely cruise on inlines for the 7 km run takes about 15 minutes. I can sprint all the way under 10 minutes.
Theme: Extreme Sports
