Olympics is here! and with all the fanfare and excitement. Before the traffics and roads descent into chaos in central London in the next few weeks, we will take the Stroll to touristy hotspots around town – Regents Street, Piccadilly Circus, West End, Trafalgar Square, Parliament Square and Buckingham Palace. Half time will be at the Brunswick Centre near Russell Square. Weather forecast is looking good for Sunday, so no excuse not to be out! See you all there!

  1. Saw this, this afternoon on Regent Street, looked awesome.
    Newbie looking to get into this, but noticed that almost everyone was wearing inlines. Are quads not suitable for this event? Going to buy a new pair of skates, so not sure whether it should be quads or inlines.

    • Inlines are easier to handle on London roads, but as you saw, people that have enough quad skating experience cope just fine with quads. We’d suggest inlines are the best option for newbies though. We look forward to seeing you sometime soon!
