London, (PRWEB) March 13, 2005
Citiskate, UK's largest inline skating school, is expecting over 200 children and adult rollerbladers to take part in London's first family orientated mass social skate on Saturday 26 March . The two mile route around Battersea park, taking in the entire perimeter circuit of the south London open space, is a precursor to the Easter egg hunt as well a brand new weekly skating event, the Easy Peasy skate.
The egg adventure starts at 10am and in keeping with the accessibility theme the starting landmark will be Easy Peasy Japanesy - the Peace Pagoda on the north side of the park. A 30 minute free skating lesson from skate instructors Citiskate is then followed by volunteers ushering young and old skaters around the park route finishing back at the start point to begin the egg search. All ages are welcome to join the first part with the egg hunt being reserved for under 13Âs and accompanying guardians only.
"Getting your skates on is all about having fun, meeting people, seeing the park and getting exercise at the same time," said Andreas Kolattek an instructor from Citiskate. "What better way to get your kids motivated to exercise than by offering them an adventure on their skates and a chocolate reward at the end of their first event? With the park situated in the middle of Ânappy valleyÂ we're looking forward to a record turnout and a great day."
The Easy Peasy skate starts at 10am and is scheduled to finish at 12 noon. It is open to skaters of all abilities and ages. Registration - for the Easter egg hunt only - is limited to 200 and ensures kids receive a chocolate egg at the end of the event. Non-registrants may still join but cannot be guaranteed a prize. Registration is available online only on the website below.
