As a result of Markus’s abject fear of men in Gorilla suits the plan was to avoid the marathon with a stroll to Bishops Park. The early morning weather and the predictions of the Met Office lead to the skate being called off; however what do the scientists know? It turned out nice again. A few intrepid skaters did the route on an unmarshaled basis and had a good time.
It just goes to show that the no go status informs you that there will not be a marshaled street skate occurring. If you disagree with the weather reports and have the inclination to throw caution to the wind, are capable of skating independently in traffic and not too fussed about what state your bearings end up in afterwards, then feel free to turn up at the regular start point anyway and see if anyone else has the same thoughts as you.
