Bristol roller hockey?

Does anyone know of any roller hockey clubs/groups in or near Bristol, that take beginners? For some reason I'm not having much luck on the WWW, everything seems out of date or a dead end! ...Would really appreciate any up to date info someone on here might have!!

Muchos thanks

Any Bristol skaters?

I've been a north surrey commuter to hyde park for the past few years, but come September I'm moving to Bristol.... Just wondered if there's a similar scene anywhere there, or any decent flat surfaces people could recommend to me to get a few miles in for fitness?

Many thanks!

This is all really helpful, thank you :D ...what is 'scooter'ing? Also: roll along in a scissor and lift the heel of the trailing foot ...

The T-stop

I'd be really grateful for any tips. For some reason I just can't get it... do I need more practice balancing on one foot? Are there any common errors?

Also I can't find any online instruction videos for this particular stop, if anyone knows of any, that'd be awesome :)

Re: LFNS Friday 7th March

(Just a guestimate I know, but) Do you think he'd still have KO'd with a helmet on? How much can they actually reduce an impact? Hmm. I was involved in a crash on my bike on the London to Brighton a few years ago, & I was wearing a woolly hat under a helmet, still got knocked unconscious and ne...

Re: Today's Stroll call..and LFNS/SS calls in general

Did people actually get upset at the Marshalls? That's so wrong!!! I wasn't there today but I hope you didn't get given any grief. In SW London the weather kept flicking from heavy shower to sunshine in the space of a few minutes, I couldn't believe my eyes! - so unpredictable. For the record I real...

Wow great, thanks so much guys! I did the Sunday Stroll yesterday (first time!) and I did feel more confident going over the cobbles when I was going faster, but yeah it's when you have to slow down slower than you want that it got a bit tricky!

getting over 'cobbles'

Any advice for gumbies getting over cobbled bits in the road on street skates?

I kind of mean those bits that are like that strip right at the start of Serpentine Rd, they're only ever a couple of feet long before you're back on tarmac. What would people suggest as a technique?

Hey MeJu! As a bit of a n00b myself ;) I can highly recommend Club Blue Room, for advice and a good range of decent skates. They really listen to you and are honest and helpful (my sales guy was anyway!). Also if you buy a pair of skates there you get a free skating lesson thrown in, and sometimes d...
