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.
Heading to southwest London to an area with a history of industry dating back to the 15th century. It’s enterprises included pottery, tapestry-weaving, paper-making and brewing. It was involved in energy production, transportation, the automotive industry, aviation and food production.
It’s associated with the electrification of the tube lines and has been a maintenance hub for the rolling stock and track but will be decommissioned by 2019.
All we know, is that it’s called Fulham.
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.
Smooth Rollin’ Daaan’ Saaaf! – Southbound to Stockwell.
Alright me old mucka. On the cobbles all the way saaaf of the river. Did I say cobbles? What cobbles? Must be havin’ a giraffe!
It’s all smooth rollin ‘ere mate. As smooth as a errrrrmmmm…. I don’t know, just smooth as can be, alright!!
Grab your skates, slap a smile on ya face and let’s take to the streets of London to have some fun. Nuff said yeah!
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.
We take the good with the bad, just like in life. We head off to Mornington Crescent. We have fun bits, we have smooth bits, and then we have the odd rough bit (welcome to route planning in London).
Bring your skates out, have fun, look cool, and most importantly…….SMILE!
There is nothing finer than flowing through a smooth mews. This friday we have a fine selection. We also have on offer Kensington Church Street, another fast flavoursome treat.
With halftime at South Kensington Station, & after a roll down to the South Embankment, your wheels will be sated, satisfied, spent.
This Sunday our star quaddie lead marshal Kev will be taking the Sunday Stroll on a wonderful wander down to Wandsworth. Hopefully the temperatures will stay up and we might even see some sun! So come and join us with music, wheels and a willingness to have a good time!!
Looping west, generally following the river. Generally flat and smooth roads (two sections have been resurfaced recently). Moderate to Fast paced.
This weekend is a bank holiday and, being the last Sunday of the month, it is a Snail Stroll. So if you haven’t skated for a while or you think you’re ready to give street skating a go, this is the perfect weekend as your muscles will have all day on Monday to recover! Come and join your Lead Marshal Emily on a winding route down to Battersea Park for half time. But the picnic in the park won’t happen there – save it for when we get back to The Serpentine!!
