Tuesday Night Skating (TNS)
Frankfurt 18 April 2006
Since 1999 TNS organizes night skating in Frankfurt (opens in separate window).
This evening the tour was 37 km and 720 skaters participated. It was well organized, great fun and the tempo was higher than I could imagine that this kind of group would be able to keep.
This photo was taken earlier the same day.
A few minutes before 20.30 pm, skaters gathering for start.
20.30 pm, start.
TNS organizer, TNS webmaster and photographer Frank Räcker in action.
Not only does he take a lot more photos than me, his photos are better.

Every now and then there was a stop so that the slower skaters could catch up.

A longer stop at Messeturm (the Expo Tower)...
