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.

Sunday Kings!

Last time we did this route the rain caught us on the early birdy minutes of the second half. Let’s try it again have and some FUN! This route takes us through a lot of places in London, so bring your friends out and enjoy the Sunday Stroll!

 

 

The Sunday After Le Mans!

Still feeling the skating blues after Le Mans? Well it is time to get your skates back on and join us for the Stroll! We are doing a revised version of the Walk Along the Canals. The odd thing about planning routes in London is that road surface quality changes quickly, so although we are heading towards the canals we won’t actually skate along them much, because,…well…..the road surfaces are just that bad.

Bring your skates out, share your Le Mans stories, spread the word and get your friends to join in!

Notting Hill Madness Try 2….

Two Sundays ago the weatherman decided to change his mind after the weather call, so here we go again; Notting Hill Madness retake, also known as Hyde Park Roundabout. Only this time with a twist this time around as we will blitz past the Norwegian Embassy since the lead marshal thinks its a good idea to stop by his country’s embassy on its National Day 🙂

Sunday Notting Hill Madness

This Sunday we head back to Notting Hill, where else would you spend your beloved bank holiday Sunday? This route essentially goes around Hyde Park, and is a more challenging Sunday Stroll. You need to (as always) be able to control your speed on your own as we are going down a downhill on this route. Have fun and go mad!
