Hyde Park Roundabout

Hi folks,

 

We did this route not too long ago, but it is fun, it is enjoyable and we get to see lots of different parts of London! From Hyde Park we go north, and do basically a big loop around the park. At Notting Hill Gate we will have a small break, before carrying on. We go down part of Kensington Church Street, however we go down at a controlled slow speed. Come out and join fellow Londoners on wheels while listening to the awesome music from our Asbox crew!

Clapham Cannonball Run!

Looking to burn off some of those chocolates you have been munching over Easter? Look no further!  The Clapham Cannonball Run is back. That means 14 miles of good fun, going up hills, down hills, and keeping a decent pace throughout.

 

As this is one of our longer Friday routes please ensure you show up before 8PM so we can leave promptly. Bring your skates out and have fun!

 

And no, this is no April’s Fool 🙂

Long Good Friday Night Skate!

We kick this coming Easter bank holiday weekend off with the Long Good Friday Night Skate! All in good tradition we skate around London following the circle line (we shall be more punctual and on time than TFL). This is a longer than usual skate (28K) so we start at 7PM. We will have two breaks. The first break is by Liverpool Stree Station, and the second break is by Paddington Station.

Please nudge your friends to make sure they show up at 7PM and not 8PM for our normal departure.

On Saturday there are free slalom workshops in Hyde Park after the Easy Saturday Skate Batersea Park and on Sunday we run the Easter Bunny Skate. Check this Easter events page for full details

Skate that was a canal skate…

Plan extra time for today. Due to events in Hyde Park the meeting point will be Queen Mother Gate (near our usual spot by Park Lane Road). importantly, we need to leave on time – 2pm.

This time we are off to Maida Hill Market. When first created this route was supposed to be a canal stroll, however, road quality in London changes so quickly that now the route bears little resembles to what it once was.

Bring your skates out and join us for a fun Sunday afternoon! Spread the word and have fun!

Notting Hill Madness

Last Sunday 50 skaters participated for the first time in the Notting Hill Carnival. Let’s head back to Notting Hill, so that for those that were there can go down memory lane. As a reminder: this route goes down Kensington Church Street (we go down together, slowly) which means that you need to be able to safely control your speed in a downhill.
