    None of them are me, Z, and they are rollerskating not rollerblading!



    Definitely not cool!

    at 43 its only cool if you are good at it.


    Really not cool?

    I should love to be able to do this!


    Well, TJ, I don't fall over very often…

    not good enough julian. You have to be able to whizz along effortlessly


    Ahhhh well! I'll keep on beng uncool and enjoying myself then… Like I said, I don't care: I enjoy it!

    No – rollerskiing is cool 😉


    I really enjoy it, it's good exercise and its free (when you have the kit).

    So: cool or not cool? (not that I care – see above). Some seem to think that at 43 I should be growing up, but others think it's good.

    PS. Should I wear my cycle lid with the peak at the back when blading?

    If you want rooler blading then this is what i used to do.
    But just not as good.

    Hey Julian, ignore the nay sayers. I am a bit older than you and still go out on mine, saving for a kitewing.
    Now doing this on roller blades rather than ice skates would be brill.

    Thanks rogerthecat!

    Great vid. Good luck with the kitewing!


    I gotta support you on this one JulianA.

    We need to start something like they've got in Munich.
    I lived there for a few years and every Monday night in Summer we'd join in with about 10,000 others and do a tour of the city, usually 10 miles or so. The police even operated a rolling roadblock to close the streets and allow everyone through.
    …and yes it always ended at a beergarden :o)
    Great atmosphere – I really miss it !

    I didn't say don't do it – its just that stuff like this is only cool if you are good once you start to approach middle age.

    I want to get a BMX – now can you imagine anything sadder than a middle aged man riding a BMX if you can't do tricks? Now imagine the same man but doing all the stunts. One has some cool – the other not.

    Go for it I say! Grow old disgracefully


    Glad some other people seem to be into it as well!

    Love the Munich thing – great idea. Only spent a few hours there but thought it was one of the nicest cities we have been to.

    Go BMX, TJ!


    I always think it should be done by the sea. Something like Venice or Santa Monica, Mission Bay in Auckland. Hell if you enjoy just do it.

    This is what i used to get up to, i gave it up when i was 22 though.

    Its the last edit i made, im in it. Some of my mates are still skating, there bodies must be ruined by now.

    I do fancy getting some decent reccy skates and just rolling around. It is enjoyable.

    i love blading. am amazed at the chaps i see in hyde park tackling obstacles etc at a decent speed. sadly, i'm not that good and don't do it very often so probably uncool. would love some lessons though, but going from edinburgh – london for blading lessons isn't that practical and it would look a bit stupid doing it in edinburgh.
