Roadskater gave me a Powers of 2 Crystal Blue BCD (binary) Clock, sold by Anelace, Inc. I finally got around to plugging it in and setting the time.

Skating the Full Silver Comet and Chief Ladiga Trail Again: 94 Miles of Hot Fun in Georgia and Alabama

 

 

Driving down from North Carolina late at night, I asked eebee to post a note to the APRR (Atlanta Peachtree Road Rollers) list inviting people to join us for a long slow distance skate the next day, or perhaps the day after. We had earlier this year done our favorite 62-miler from Mile 0 near Nickajack Elementary School to mile 31 at Brushy Mountain Tunnel and back.

Not-Quite-Atlanta to Not-Quite-Anniston: Another 94 miles on the Silver Comet and Chief Ladiga Trails

Much like the night before the 2009 Carolina Century, I found myself sat bolt upright in bed at 3am on Sunday, worrying out loud about that day's inclement weather forecast, and our intention to skate 94 miles. Except this time I wasn't listening to the wind howl or acorns rattling on the roof, but wondering just how warranted the dangerous air quality forecast and excessive heat advisory were.

"We're all going to end up in the hospital!".

[I posted this (with minor edits) for ShabbatSam who is making his way to Canada as I type. If you found it here and decided to donate, please let ShabbatSam know RSN sent you. No we don't get anything but skateylove out of it if you mention us...and that's plenty. Congratulations in advance, ShabbatSam, for your effort. We have at least one Roadskater.net skater, SkateyMark, who will be intensely interested in your progress. --Roadskater]

Thanks to Jeremy at Greensboro Country Park and the Awesome AgriMetal Blower

I postponed some color madness and jersey decision and indecision for awhile in the hopes of some laps with pals at Country Park. On the way I realized that the party might be somewhat small in number, but that was OK, methought.

Tour to Tanglewood Training Bike Ride Inline Skate July 24 2010 Cycle Therapy Lewisville NC

Roadskater and I skated about 34 miles at the Lewisville, NC Cycle Therapy Tour to Tanglewood training ride this weekend. I hadn't skated the majority of the roads on this route before, and was pleasantly surprised to find them relatively traffic-free. Even as we plodded back into town, there was only a minor amount of traffic, with no (audibly) angry drivers.

Tour to Tanglewood Training Bike Ride Inline Skate July 24 2010 Cycle Therapy Lewisville NC

There's a FREE training ride in Lewisville this weekend. It's free even if you don't sign up for the Tour to Tanglewood for MS. These training rides are usually as good or better than rides you have to pay to attend. Rollout is 8 a.m. and registration starts at 7 a.m. or so. They roll promptly and rarely have been known to even roll a couple of minutes early maybe, so it's good to be ready. I don't know the routes or distances, sorry. We'll likely do a route in the mid-30-mile range if there is one and if there is also a longer distance. Anyway that's what I know. * Ride Starts: 8am
