  • In Rochester there isnt many really, you have the coach parks and the back of the Dickens Centre in the High Street.
  • The 5-step is the most hallowed spot known to w-pushers, its a massive set of 16th century stone steps and it is so hard to olly first time out. Its almost like a right of passage when a young scud works up the nerve and speed to clear the run and miss every step! Well worth a look if you wanna prove yourself to the locals and scare any passers by!!!!
