Photos, Speed Topo Map, 3-D Thumbnail Map from Tour de Lions 2009 Bike Ride Inline Skate (Skride) in Grays Chapel NC

The 215 photos that made the final cut for the Tour de Lions 2009 gallery are now geocoded, thanks to eebee's .tcx file. My 305 was locked up and I didn't yet know how to unlock it (see http://roadskater.net/how-reboot-garmin-forerunner-305-locked-when-recharging-cradle-and-wont-power for info). As a result, there are some photos where she was up ahead waiting on me to finish snappin' so the location is not exact, but they're close.

Holiday Shopping Deals That Help Roadskater.net Too: Forerunner 305 for just $150, Much More

Some have asked if there's a way to help Roadskater.net other than donating money, and here is one that won't cost anything. In general, if you plan to buy anything on ebay.com or amazon.com, if you can visit roadskater.net and do the first search from the sidebar ebay and amazon search boxes, that helps (especially if you end up joining ebay and buying or selling something not long afterward).

Mark Sibert Rolls in First Among Inline Skaters as Roadskater.net Carolina Century Raises $1025 for Charity

For those who don't know we had 8 skaters (4 from Georgia, 4 from NC) and 57 cyclists at the inaugural Roadskater.net Carolina Century (carolinacentury.com), which raised $1025 after expenses. The proceeds will be donated in the names of the volunteers to the MS society (or at their option to select charity cycling events that benefit individuals with sudden catastrophic challenges in their lives).

Google Chrome Good Stuff But Careful Where You Use It for Now

Today or yesterday was the beta release of Google Chrome, a fast new browser that's free to download and use. At first blush it seems snappier than even Firefox 3. If you're using Internet Explorer, I recommend you get Firefox 3 and Google Chrome and look at both. If you have Firefox 3, Chrome is still worth a look: http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/ www.google.com/chrome

The Paceline Bicycles Greensboro Bike Ride and Inline Skate was a fun, if relatively short (around 28 miles or so...I turned my Garmin Forerunner 305 on a bit late), training ride for the Tour to Tanglewood.

Roadskater.net Back and the United States Postal Service Now USP not USPS

Just a quick note to say sorry RSN was down a while. I had a power supply burn out and take along his mother on the way out. Thanks to timv for assistance in the effort to deny it was really dead with various parts to test. Thanks to tax day for making it all more pressure-packed, and to the USPS folk who were NOT THERE when I arrived with my usual at my usual 11:45 p.m. celebratory time. Sad. Bad enough to not have Krispy Kreme doughnuts and coffee. Worse still to see a lobby and parking lot full of people wondering what's up with that?
