Sunday Stroll - 9th Jan - GO!!!

Postby Look no Skywater » Thu Jan 06, 2011 11:17 am

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all got what you wanted for Christmas.

If the weatherfolks are to be believed we will be off to the recently unfrozen north (well Camden) this weekend. As I look out of my window on Parkway I can verify that the powers that be are busy washing the streets from above in preparation for the first official street skate of 2011. That's good because it needed a good hose down after New Year.

More details as ever on the LFNS website

The more the merrier.

Don't forget to check your skates to make sure they still work if you haven't managed to wear them for a few weeks. Quite a few people have siezed up bearings. Wouldn't want you to miss the skate because your gear is out of order.

Bring it!

The BBC have decided they'd like to film the Stroll this Sunday the 9th of January for a documentary they're completing for broadcast later this year. It's about the ways people in large cities cope with and enjoy the cities they live in.

So here's hoping for sunny weather first of all, but also it would be really great if we can get as many marshals, punters and music systems out as possible this Sunday. Given nobody has managed to skate for a few weeks and the forecast isn't looking too bad (yet!) it'd be great to get lots of people out for the first Stroll of the year up to Camden and back, so please come out if you can!

What happened to the londonsantaskate being run in January? Personally I think that would be weird, but someone was asking me the other day!

If you can get hold of a transmitter to hook up our asbombs to the bike, then I can bring my asbomb and I'm sure that Robert won't mind if some nice volunteer wants to borrow his asbomb.

I needed that. Great start to the New Year. Good workout as it was longer (and faster?) than the usual Stroll. Thanks for the ride.

Really liked the eclectic music mix - anything from The Byrds and Small Faces to Kylie and Girls Alound. Something to please everybody. (Assuming, that is, that someone likes Girls Alound)
