Marshalling the skate can be hard work, as the marshals can never be sure what is going to jump out at them. As can be seen at 1’06” in the this video:
PS: If you’ve seen the skate featured elsewhere on the internet please tell us.
Van and Natalia, two regular skaters, got married today. As they met on the skate we’re all feeling like Cilla right now
Congratulations from all at the LFNS
This sunday we are going to Maida Vale, or are we? It’s raining as I write this and it doesn’t appear that the precipitation will relent. 2pm at Hyde Park Corner. We’ll advise at 12pm whether its going ahead
The LFNS is working with Sustrans this Saturday to encourage people from an East London estate to get active on their bikes.
The Brox and a few hardy skaters will be going down to Shandy Park, Stepney at 12pm Saturday to join in with the ride. It heads out through Mile End Park, round the outer edge of Victoria Park and out the east exit to pick up the Green Way cycle route to the View Tube Cafe at the Olympics site. After a quick rest, the ride will then head back to Shandy Park.
Nearest tube: Stepney Green
You are all welcome to come along whether on skates or cycling, however this is not a marshalled street skate. If you are skating you should be able to turn and stop of your own volition.
We are very happy to announce that The Vic has re-opened following its recent refurbishment; nice wallpaper by the way. If you want to know where everyone goes after a skate, try following a marshal, you will probably end up there.
We are proud to announce the wedding last weekend of marshals and speedskaters Natasha and Peter C. Rumours that the groom’s suit incorporated a hi-viz waistcoat are unfounded.
Hip hip hooray from all at the LFNS.
