Paris - London Skate

Postby GumbieBEN » Tue May 08, 2012 8:46 pm

Hey all, Rosa from Paris has asked me the following so I said i'd post here to get your ideas....

HI Ben, I am contacting you about a friend of mine who would like to organise a very unusual street skate from Paris to London. The street sk8 will gather sk8ers & disbled people on wheelchair.
He would like to know what will be the best route to take in England to reach London and if there is any places either free of charge or unexpensive to accomodate them. They will be about 50 people. Do you think if, of course it is possible, you could organise a kind of welcome and/or few people who could secure the route for them in London on their arrival.

My response would be that when I thought of doing London - Paris I looked at the following route...

Day 1
London - Brighton
88km skating
(to be done the day of the bike ride when the roads are closed)

Day 2
Brighton - Dieppe
24kms skating
Ferry from Newhaven

Day 3
Dieppe - Forges les Eaux
40km skating
La voie Verte

Day 4
Forges les Eaux - Chaumont en Vexin
60kms

Day 5
Chaumont en Vexin - Eiffel Tower
60kms

Actually thinking of doing this over Sunday to Friday, wth a couple of days rest.
However i think skating from London to Brighton without the roads being closed for the bke ride would be impossible?

Other peoples suggestions?

I'm not on the LSST forum but I am sure there was a mention on there before about skates between Paris and London so they may have some info (I'll nudge sparky to post it in there too)
