Citiskate London - inline skating lessons in London



Longest ever Sunday Rollerstroll makes
it to Crystal Palace...just

Kay writes,
"The Crystal Palace skate was fantastic! I thoroughly enjoyed the skate, even
though I struggled on the hills (nothing new!). It'll certainly be a skate
talked about and remembered for a long time.

Special thanks all goes to [the marshals], I believe, for the never-ending
killer hill from Dulwich to Crystal Palace Park. Just exactly how much work
went into you finding that hill, I wonder?! And I thought you were just
trying to scare people with your warning about being able to skate hills,
and wondered why many people left at Brixton, now I know! Couldn't believe
that hill, didn't think I was going to survive it! But at the end of the skate,
I thought it was a great achievement and it gave us all something to laugh and
chat about on the train home. Absolutely loved it..."
