We're considering this one. Likely the 34. Call any time before midnight or after 7a for confirmation if it matters whether we're there. Inexpensive and likely to be a relaxed group. Starts at Country Park!

Note: it's not easy to skwalk from the road to the shelter, so skaters and those who love their cleats obsessively may want to walk over in street shoes to register before donning the gear.

Registration begins at 8a.

Skateylove.

If you're curious about this event, just promise yourself you'll go out and do it! Beautiful, hilly terrain, rural roads, an entire town volunteering support for the ride, prizes, food, and a great cause...

Here's my report from last year's event:

http://roadskater.net/?q=tour-de-kale-2007-report

Event website: http://tourdekale.com/

Last year Kale himself made it very clear to us that we should come back in 2008 - and bring a bunch more skaters with us!

Ken's Ride has some great roads and beautiful views, plus some mild suburb traffic, and two or three technical challenges for skaters of the downhill sort. If you have a brake or nice wheel burning budget, it's a nice, hilly day out.

Cycles de Oro is a constant supporter of inline skaters being part of charity bike rides and much more, and Dale was a co-incorporator of the new NC Active Transportation Alliance, which has welcomed skaters along with walkers, runners, cyclists and others engaged in human-powered transportation. This ride starts in the north part of Greensboro, with one technical part near the start downhill to a T at Latham Park. After that, it's out of the city to the north and back in by familiar roads, then through Sunset Hills back to the shop. Always a nice time with super people.

Paceline Bicycles in Winston-Salem puts on a nice ride and they're definitely friendly folk. It's a bit citified at the start but quickly nice country roads. Coming back you may need your braking skills or good timing, but it's all good and not far to the shop from there.

T2T training rides welcome experienced roadskaters to join in, but if it's your first one, please talk with the MS Society staff, a Bike Response Team member (look for their jerseys!), or a Roadskater.net skater if you can before rolling out. Bikes are welcome too of course!

Spinz Bike Shop is a relatively new sponsor but they did a lot last year at various charities, not just the Tour to Tanglewood. I went to their skride last year and met Andy there. We had a good time on some nice roads. Of course any ride starting in a town named High Point ends with some kind of uphill run! We had a great time and they were mighty friendly to us at the shop.

Hi everyone!

 

I am teaching the next SkateStrong workshop on Saturday, July 19th, 2008. Normally, I'd point everyone to the website for details, but the power supply on my webserver (which was just replaced 4 months ago) has died again! So, rather than wait for the replacement to be shipped to me, I thought I should get the word out now so that people can plan accordingly.

Not much available on this festival yet, but some of the Boston skaters have come down to skate Tour to Tanglewood with us, so maybe we can find a way up to see them. I wonder about the train, if it might be competitive at these gas prices? It'll be much later if I can decide to do it. I wish I could have been there last week in fact for a geek con up there. Great skaters and a great town equal tons of fun. I don't know much about Skate Boston. Anyone here been? The website is http://www.skate-boston.net but I think they're not ready for us as of this writing.

Paceline Bicycles in Greensboro hosted a great ride last year with police support for their Battleground Ave location at rollout and even when we returned from a long ride. Great job Greensboro City Police! The Paceline team has been friendly to our team of skaters at the tour and around Country Park, and this skride is another way to enjoy the hills north of the city and share the road with lots of friendly cyclists.

Paul's had a shaky ride or two, but the last one I went to was great fun on great roads. Near the shop it's a bit busy, as with most bike shops (that's why they put 'em there!), but once out to the open roads I recall some sweet rolls and nice views. I'm glad Paul's paid attention to feedback and improved their route some years back. Thanks!

OK. Now I can say it. The jerseys have just arrived and they look pretty good methinks, but I have not had time to check them thoroughly. The color is a color you have seen before somewhere in nature. Some are going to love it, and some will hate it. Now it's just a matter of getting them to the people that love it. If you don't love it, don't open it and we'll sell it to someone else. But I hope you love it!

Wow this is some great news. The much-respected Tour de Moore has invited us to join them for the Sandhills Cycling Club's main event hits the road Labor Day. I sent an inquiry earlier this week to Rainbow Cycles and received this reply:
Yes we’d love to have road skaters at our event.  It looks like it will be a perfect day in the 80’s with some clouds.  You can register at active.com or print our registration form from our website sandhillscyclingclub.org.  How many skaters will you bring?

Camp out at the campsite or in a nearby hotel room for much-deserved sleep, wake up next day and give your body another great workout skating (or cycling) back to Greensboro for lunch!

This is a cycling event but the GVC folks usually let us join in on skates! Not sure how late the course is open, but there are rest stops and a SAG, as well as 'food and drink' at the finish.

As we transition into a new federal administration, it's an important time to make your voice heard in support of projects that favor more and safer alternatives to the automobile...especially human-powered alternatives.
