Cambridge Fens Trip Saturday 29th August 2020
Join Asha for a day of Fitness and Speed Skating Training Saturday 29th August 2020. The 13 mile track from Cambridge North Station to St Ives (and back) means we will skate a marathon in one day (with a stop for lunch after 13 miles) and some lesson time focussing on Stride work (improving your Push, Glide and Regroup).
The track is completely flat and extremely smooth (much like Holland) and even boasts a windmill! Usually we have to go to Europe to get these kind of skate conditions but we can now enjoy this day trip with a short train ride from Kings Cross.
We begin our skate from Cambridge North and return there later in the afternoon. Buy an open return so we aren't stressed for time on the return and we will have lunch in St Ives.
The day's fee includes all guiding and teaching. Asha will be working with each skater individually to correct and improve their Stride while also giving group mini lessons and focus points throughout the day. Some work on stopping may also be included if needed.
The level for this Trip is Intermediate and like all Skatefresh Trips you'll need to apply so that we can control the average speed of the trip and not become too spread out.
Important: Please do not buy your train tickets until you have been accepted onto the Trip. If you are new to Skatefresh Trips or haven't been to class with Asha before we may need to see video of you skating to assess if you reach the minimum requirements.
To Book please email Trish at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will try to accept you as soon as possible so you can benefit from cheaper train fares etc.
What To Bring
Once you've been accepted onto the Trip, you will need to book your train there and back and pay for your own lunch in St Ives. You'll need a rucksack for your things (but try to pack light), water, plus sunscreen and protective gear and helmet.
Getting there from London (less than 1 hour train)
If travelling from London, we will meet on the 8.12am Train from Kings Cross to Cambridge North Station (arriving 9.07am) and we begin our skate from Cambridge North leaving the station car park at 9.30am and return there later in the afternoon. Buy an open return so we aren't stressed for time on the return and we will have lunch in St Ives where there are several options to eat including Waitress style picnic (depending on the weather).
