can I assume you refer to this ?

The Royal Parks Revised Code of Conduct states that:

Skaters in the Royal Parks should...


Skate in single file along cycle tracks
Keep to the left on cycle tracks
Skate in a manner & at a speed appropriate to the conditions
Give way to pedestrians at all times, and take care around the horse rides
Indicate in which direction they intend to overtake
Give pedestrians a wide berth
Keep to the areas marked for the purpose
Obey instructions issued by a police officer or a member of the Royal Parks staff
Skaters in the Royal Parks should not...


Perform jumps, tricks, dance steps or spins, where there are pedestrians, or at all on cycle tracks
Skate backwards anywhere in the Royal Parks
Perform slalom, or take part in hockey or other games, except in the area set aside for the purpose on the Albert Memorial Road in Kensington Gardens
Exceed a speed of 15mph at any time
Hold on to a moving vehicle


Oooo its back.....

Not so much back, as an old page for which I've never seen any updates. I just assume it's a case of rules they could enforce if we were to step too far out of line.

I mean the post got removed for a bit.

Well yeah they let us bend the rules since it doesnt hurt anyone (but ourselves). im sure if people started taking out people or creating a mess. then they would toughen up.

skaters have always been vermin to the parks, the only reason they don't enforce the rules is because that means they would have to stop the instructors in the park that will generaly make skaters safer. If you remove the instructors then there would be too many accidents by begginers.

Due to the reason that they may ban us if we push the rules I'm currently looking for a hard suitcase I can carry my stereo in & when not in use can be used as a Jump rather than using the bins & angering the little man that ponders along in his 150cc car thingy.
He ran over the bin AND the cups yesterday because he didn't like us using it. But apart from me giving him a verbal challenge, he's got the overall authority :x

Skaters in Royal Parks Should...

At no time be seen without a can of beer or other intoxicating fluid.

Allways have the volume turned up to full on personal stereos to avoid unessacary distractions.

Skate backwards as fast as possible, especialy near the cafe/ hotdog stands/ gumbies/ tourists.

Never stop unlless to laugh at accidents.

Size up every woman choosing to use the park.

And some of the boys.

Smoke continuosly.

Shout random obcenities.

Skitch wheel chairs.

ROTFL!!!!

Yesterday I was really tempted to do so when a guy crossed the Serpentine at fast speed (around 10-15mph) on his weel chair!
The guy looked happy and was belling all the time to make the people move away from him!

I reckon the autorities should ask him to pass his Driving test to drive such a fast weel chair!

Wouldn't a better way to stop pedestrians getting hurt by skaters be to make sure they're aware that Serpentine Road is a *road* and that they shouldn't be ambling about on it not looking where they're going? And if bikes on the pavement are considered an offence under this anti-social behaviour act thing, shouldn't pedestrians in cycle lanes be similarly punished?
It looks like my local park is being done up a bit by the council and it seems they've decided that cyclists are allowed after all. Had a look at the 'skate park' they rather condescendingly told me about when I emailed them to ask about non-aggressive skating in the parks round here. One ramp, with four kids sat on it eating ice-cream, not a wheel in sight.
