This Friday, the route has a bit of everything. Straight roads, zig-zag sections, main roads, alleyways, smouth roads, rough roads, gorgeous river views, council estates, over bridges, under bridges, roads above ground, roads below, parks and a sports stadium. But mainly left turns.


River Run

Heading back to Putney/Wandsworth. This being summer, we have enough light to skate along the river in Wandsworth Park, and should have some nice sunset views along the embankment on Grovesnor Road.

Flat, mainly straight, smooth, are relatively fast.

Royal Freedom

12 mile route, heading pretty direct to Regent Park, gradually heading via Camden/Chalk Farm up to the bottom of Hamstead heath (before the big hill) up then back down. From where a long smooth gentle descent back home as payback.

Credit for the original route goes to Mira, so no cardiac hills, but definitely inclined.


This week, weather permitting, we are heading back west, with the smooth straight flat surfaces of King Street, Stamford Brook Road, Goldhawk, and Sulgrave Rd.

One slight hill as we head up to the top of Campden Hill, but the downhill of Kensington Church Street should be the pay-off.
