As Covid-numbers have been increasing in many parts of the world a lot of countries went on a second lockdown. With sports facilities and skate parks closed you might be stuck in your small apartments left without much options for a work-life-balance. Or are you in an area that faces a very wet or snowy winter with no place to skate? If you have already run through the whole program of our “13 Ways to Entertain Yourself while in Quarantine” and watched our “Roller Skating films and videos to binge watch”, and are looking for more lockdown pastime for roller skaters, we’ve got you covered. We searched the web for more activities for you.
