We are a group of London based skaters, rollerbladers and wheelchair users who go out together as a group on a regular basis. Our aim is to raise awareness of the difficulties that wheelchair users encounter on a daily basis, and we want to encourage wheelchair users to live more active lives, through their participation in outdoor sports. The wheelchair users are pushed by the skaters, and together we cover a distance of 5 to 12 miles. Our joint trips usually start in one of London’s main parks, and we also use carefully chosen routes through Central London, taking in major landmarks and attractions Our Street Strolls are always marshalled by the skaters who go ahead of the main group and stop the traffic, to ensure the safety of the entire group. Another group of marshals will always maintain a presence behind the main group to make sure that no one gets left behind, and that other road users are aware of our presence on the road. As a group of able bodied and disabled friends, we go out together about once or twice a month. Through our joint efforts, we achieve what neither group would be able to do on their own. Together, we can.
