Photos and Maps for Carolina Century 2009 Recon 51-Miler Greensboro NC Tour to Tanglewood Training Bike Ride & Inline Skate

Here are photos from the 51-mile recon skate and bike last weekend. We did the 51 route to see how the markings and road surfaces were. We came away feeling some surfaces were slightly worse but some major ones were much better. Overall, I'd say I can live with some patching that was rougher last fall but has had some sealing done, and one of the roads I considered taking out of the route has been made into supersweet asphalt now. It was a fun day out with beautiful skies and great companionship with skatey-mark, northinsouth and timv joining in.

Athens to Atlanta A2A Road Skate Absolute First Timer


OK, this will be my first A2A, my first road race, period. Pretend I just flew in from Venus or something, y'all, and be patient. My fitness is high, got my new speed skates and am busy building ankle calluses after years of high-boot inlines.A few questions -

1. Apparently, you can send your own food/snacks ahead to various rest checkpoints. How does this work? Did I mention this was my first race?

Photos and Maps for Cycles de Oro Greensboro NC 2009 Tour to Tanglewood Training Bike Ride & Inline Skate

Four of the Roadskater.net team made it out, two on skates, two on bikes, to roll up and down with the penultimate T2T training ride of the year. We thought we might have four more at least, and did some route scouting to pick an alternative that would save some $80+ wheels or a chunk of $5 brake pad material and some time...no biggie on the latter. Unfortunately, early damp roads dissuaded some of our crew, understandably, from the trek to the skride.

Photos and Maps for Tour de Kale 2009 Denton Farm Park NC 60K Charity Bike Ride Inline Skate

Tour de Kale 2009 was hot and hilly and absolutely wonderful countryside joyous torture! The people who volunteer are really great to skaters (and cyclists and runners), and this is one we find money for even when times are tight. We passed up a free T2T training ride to do Tour de Kale, and you know how much we love T2T free skrides.
