Saturday 8 December 4.30pm - Roller ski tour of Richmond Park

Every year in December roller skiers meet at Richmond Park for a tour of the park by torchlight. It is a relaxed and informal event which provides a good opportunity to meet other skiers. The roads close to traffic at dusk and so at 4.30pm we start outside Sheen Gate for a circular tour of the park, a distance of about 7.5 miles.

With no traffic to worry about and plenty of space we take a leisurely pace.  We stop regularly to regroup with a break halfway to enjoy mince pies and gluhwein at one of the park's viewpoints.

The tour is usually over by about 6.30pm. Afterwards there is the option of a trip to a local Indian restaurant.

We will provide the mince pies and the gluhwein. You should wear bicycle lights or headtorches and high visibility clothing if you have it.  Bring some water to drink.

NB The tour is not recommended for beginners, you should be able to rollerski at an easy pace for an hour with breaks. Cyclists are also welcome on the tour.

Equipment hire or queries?

If you would like to hire equipment  (skis, poles, boots, helmets) or have any queries please email Gerard Evans by 5th December
