  • Every Thursday evening, the “rando-rollers” (“skate-trekkers”) take you on a guided stroll through different parts of downtown. It’s free and allows you to drift down the city’s streets in total safety along a marked circuit. It starts every Thursday evening at 8:30 pm at Place Alexis-Ricordeau (next to the skatepark and CHU Hospital).
