Hosted by Lady Rollers Organisation and reverbuk.com the tour kicked off at Unit 23 Skate Park, Dumbarton, where 17 Ladies took over the park sessioned hard and partied on late into the night. I managed to loss Rosie O’donoghue and was worried we would have to leave without her…only to find she was asleep under the foam pit!
The tour aimed to generate awareness and increase the profile of women within BMX, Skate Board, Inline & Scooter and inspire a new generation
of female athletes.
The main day was held at Rampworx Skate Park, Liverpool, over 50 ladies attended including Jenna Downing, Emma Richardson, Giz Radford, Kayley Ashworth and Debora Cardenas from Chile representing Roll Fem.
Rampworx opened their doors free of charge and had great team on hand providing equipment and coaching.
The atmosphere was electric and the all the Ladies shredded hard, we even had a visit from Jason Phelan..dressed as a women trying to get in! To top the evening we ended up in Bumper, I have to say the ladies got pretty wild!
Saturday, final day of the tour took us to Terminal 1, Melton Mowbray. The tricks going down were next level and we made great use of the foam pit despite all feeling a little worse for wear!
Big thank you to Reverb for providing us with our own DJ’s and “Boom Bus” and to all our sponsors and Skate Parks for making this such a great experience!
