I used to live on roller skates as a little girl, but hadn't skated as an adult at all when I went to my first practice in February 2008...and was hooked within 10 minutes.
I am really emmelinemay, where I put all the crap about my life. I'm also 2wheelsbetter where I write about cycle commuting in London. Hopefully, I shall write here about what it's like to be a rollergirl, how I learn, if I'm any good at it, the bouts, and our attempts to get the London Rollergirls (and Roller Derby in general!) London wide and UK wide recognition as an exciting extreme sport.
•I am told that I must put it in writing that in the event of my death in a most ridiculous and pointless way during a misadventure of the highest order, s0b is exonerated from all blame or responsibility, even if it was his idea in the first place that led to whatever accident may befall me.
