Hi, I just got my very first pair of Skikes. Does any one in Scotland teach proper technique or can give me some pointers to get started?

Thanks.

Hi, I realise I am nearly 2 years late in responding but have just discovered skikes and about to buy a pair. I am in Edinburgh and wondering if you found any other skikers? Or trainers?
Thanks

Hi Phyllida, apologies for not getting back to you but I've come across your message by accident on doing a search for Skike info, I was never notified of a response to my original message.

Despite months of searching, the closest I ever came was the Irish based trainers. I ended up getting great advice from the Australian Skike trainers via email. Very thourogh with you tube videos.

Sad to say I haven't taken it up yet. I tried a couple of times then fell pregnant so couldn't do it for a while but I'm aiming to start again now.

Did you have any luck?

Hi Fiona,
How is the skiking working out for you in Edinburgh. I'm looking at buying some to use on the cycle paths.

Hi Donna,

I have just bought my Skikes too.... I do have a fair amount of experience cross country skiing though so keen to nail the technique too.

Give me a shout if you fancy meeting up... there is a perfect cycle path between Bristol and Bath that I use (I am Bristol based).

Anyway, chat soon.

Sore feet
Any tips on stopping the soles of my feet cramping when I'm skiking? Thanks

I got this from my snowboard bindings & winter walking boots when I did them up to tight, thus not letting my foot expand when weighted.

The way to avoid your feet cramping is to put a pair of orthotics or arch supports in your running shoes. You may have to get 1 sie up of running shoe to accomodate but this should resolve the ache. Hope this helped
