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?Posted 8 years agoEcky-ThumpMember
I gotta support you on this one JulianA.
We need to start something like they've got in Munich.Posted 8 years ago
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 disgracefullyPosted 8 years agoBuzzlightyearMember
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.Posted 8 years agodirtygirlonabikeMember
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.Posted 8 years ago
