Hello, and welcome to the SerpentineRoad forums.
As with many online chat forums, it can be a bit daunting making your first post. You could make a start by posting a little bit about yourself in here so we can get to know you more quickly. You don't have to, of course, and it's totally up to you.
A lot of the regulars here know each other personally from skating at the real Serpentine Road in London's Hyde Park so you might feel like an outsider for a while until you get to know everyone a bit better.
Please be aware that we like to run a relaxed ship around here. Although we try to keep things polite and friendly in the skating forums, the Foo area is something of a free for all. The conversation there is often lively and sometimes people can come across as rude - which they often are. If you are of a nervous disposition then you are advised to steer clear. Foo is one of the better parts of the forum in my opinion so you will be missing out on a lot of good conversations if you don't dive in occasionally.
This is also the forum where you are welcome to post any initial questions you like, no matter how simple they seem, about skating and be assured that, even if they are stupid questions, someone will come along and give you a polite, genuine response.
