The London Friday Night Skate is a 12 to 15 mile street skate around London, every Friday (hence the name). The Sunday Stroll is a similar event of 7 to 9 miles each Sunday at 2pm.
We use different routes each time – one day we might take in famous central London roads and sights, another time we’ll head for some long fast down hills in Camden or Putney, or even a trip to the countryside out at Richmond.
The traffic is made aware of the skate as it passes by our volunteer marshals (on skates), and we even have a portable sound system.
We operate all year-round, subject to weather. Each Friday at 6pm we announce on our homepage whether the LFNS is going ahead or not. Likewise, we announce on Sunday at midday whether the Sunday Stroll is happening that day.
We are not a protest group! We’re nothing to do with any political organisation, we’re not environmental protesters, and we’re not Critical Mass.
