It was expectable... After the succes of the first Rando des Dunes (RiDe on the Dunes), Mardi c’est Roller(Roll on tuesday) - the epicurian roller skating team - and its association "La Nappe à Carreaux"(the check tablecloth) are launching The RiDe on the Dunes 2nd edition, a 400km raid across the French southwestern Landes:

The "Mardi c’est Roller" legendary atmosphere.
To facilitate the organisation, the meeting point will be Bordeaux. At the end of the raid, we will go back to Bordeaux. Those who came by car will be able to park on a free parking there. You will need to bring your tent and sleeping bag as we are going to camp every nights. Your bads (tent, sleeping bag, ...) will be carried by a truck every day to the next campsite.
The RiDe on the Dunes second edition is willing to be an international event. The "Mardi c’est roller" (roll on tuesday) skaters and "La nappe à carreaux" (the check tablecloth) association are giving their best for it.
For the skaters it is :

After we had participate to several roller skating events, to go futher, some of the "Mardi c’est roller" skaters, have decide to create an association to developpe their own events.
This association is named : « La Nappe à Carreaux » This is an "association loi 1901 à but non lucratif et à gestion désintéressée". Which mean it cannot make profit. Its goal is to organise events, which allow to share convivial time, with the same spirit as the weekly rendez-vous, and always with a collective and individual challenge.
It want to bring:
Conviviality and "art de vivre"
Gathering of roller skater from everywhere.
Some durable developpement values.
