Time to kick off 2016 with the first LFNS of the year. This time we head in a big circle around Hyde Park. Time to dust off the wheels, clean the bearings and get ready to rock and roll!
This coming Sunday we head to Kings Cross. We zigzag our way up and down, and get to cruise down Oxford Street on the way back.
Bring your skates and have fun. Show this time we skaters do it!
Time for a new route! We take some new twist and turns to Clapham Common. It is a lovely route, going places we haven’t (?) done before, and should be good fun. Please note that the skate is longer than normal, so please show up on time so we are not delayed from the park.
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!
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:Â 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.
This month the Snail will head to Maida Vale via Paddington, along the canal into Warwick Avenue. Look forward to skating along some smooth and pretty roads. The second half will see us return down Edgeware Road back to Hyde Park.
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!
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!
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 🙂
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!
