do i need to have experience in inline skating?

YES!
Important will be that all skaters are used to skate in the so called ‘trains’.
This will allow you to spare energy and will be more fun for the Group instead of skating alone…..
also: it’s more safe for all members of your group as well…..

can I participate without wearing a helmet?

NO!
wearing a helmet is obligated while skating during this event.

what’s the average speed of the daily tours?

the level of skaters normally will be wide. some are faster, some are a bit slower. skaters will be divided in smaller groups (approx 8-12 persons each) with different speed levels. 

during breaks (or the next day) you will have the chance to switch to a slower/faster group as well.

but talking about speed: in other not to have discrepancies with the time schedule the general average speed range is set to be minimum 20kmh.
