We managed to get in two skate sessions this weekend, which was nice. The weather was lovely and on Saturday we spent some time at Kensington Gardens. This was our third skate this year and we finally started to feel we’d got our legs back. On Sunday we were in Ilford, visiting my family, and just happened to have the skate gear in the car… We skated in Valentines Park for an hour or so; it was good. The path surfaces were pretty reasonable, better, in general, than Victoria Park. There was quite a lot of variety in paths, with some nice up-hill sections that really made you work.
