Obligatory introduction post..
I live in South Wales but work and stay in London in the week (around the Victoria area) so after a few weeks of seeing a lot of people skating on the road near Hyde park I finally managed to track this forum down.
I've skated off and on since I was around 13-14 (I'm 29 now), plenty of street skating, roller hockey etc. so am pretty experienced although I haven't touched my skates for about 4 years - I've been playing Ice Hockey instead :D (see photo below). I finally decided to bring my roller blades with me last week to get a feel of London and to get used to skates with wheels again (Ice Hockey skates are much different), so did a 7 mile skate from Victoria to Hackney to get used to them again.
I'm hoping to join you all tomorrow on the LondonSkate, it's a shame I didn't join in before now as the nights are getting darker and the weather worse. I did a charity 55 mile cycle on the weekend so my knee is playing up a little but should be fine tomorrow.
It's a bit lonely being in a city where you know no one so it'll be good to meet some new people with similar interests too
