Hi!

Im Gaelflyn, 31 and just skate for fun! Am about to start going regular again, this time next week I should no doubt be all achey lol.

Am about to introduce my 4 year old son to ice skating too! Also trying to get his dad to come with regular too, as I think it will be helpful to have both of us there whilst our son gets used to it!

hi... i'm revisiting ice skating at the ripe old age of 58!  i can tell you that the ice is a lot more slippery than it was when i was 15. 

i took up rollerblading 5 years ago and found it helped a lot when i took to the ice again just before christmas.

its a great way to keep fit and supple and very relaxing. unfortunately there is no ice rink near my home, i have to travel a good hour to get to my nearest ice rink but its worth it.

thanks for the welcome 

Derek
