Christmas shopping in Bridport

Today I walked down from Fishpond Bottom to Morecombelake where I picked up the X53 coastal bus to Bridport for some Christmas shopping. Bridport still has an attractive high street for a small rural town. After finishing shopping I headed back along the coast to Charmouth before returning inland to Fishpond Bottom. In the evening I enjoyed a brisk return walk under a beautiful clear sky to the Bottle Inn at Marshwood.

Electric Unicycling at Lyme Regis and Honiton Skate Parks

A quick electric unicycling video that I made whilst down visiting family South West England this week. Lyme Regis skate park (located in the corner of the Charmouth Road car park) has just opened and is perfect for electric unicycling – definitely worth a visit if anyone’s passing that way. There’s also some amazing off road trails/ridgways in the area that will be fantastic in the summer months once the pathways has dried out a little. Honiton skate park is less suited for electric unicycling but was still great fun to visit.

Ninebot One | Lyme Regis Skate Park

Today I headed down to visit family in Dorset. After arriving on the train in to Axminster I headed straight down to Lyme Regis to go and visit the brand new Skate Park which is located in the corner of the Charmouth Road Car Park. Young people in Lyme Regis had been campaigning to have a skate park built in the time for the last forty years. Hopefully the park will last a few years – it’s pretty close to cliffs that suffer landslips, although the council have recently completed a multimillion pound stabilisation works. For a small rural town the Skate park is very impressive with a very high quality finish and great fun to ride with an electric unicycle.  All of the ramps and slopes can be ridden with a EUC. The local skaters are very friendly – on a dry day expect the park to get pretty busy once school has finished, and even busier during the school holidays. It was kind of surreal to see a skate park without any graffiti. The Skate Park was designed by Wheelscape.
