Photos and Maps for Tour to Tanglewood 2009 Bike Ride & Inline Skate for MS Greensboro to Clemmons NC

roadskater's picture

After much dry weather, the Piedmont finally got rain in the days leading up to and including the 2009 version of the Tour to Tanglewood. The source of a few dropouts and mishaps, the rain failed to drench the spirits of most who chose to skate or ride. For myself, I would be wet with sweat or wet with rain, and the rain was cooler and cleaner! I struggled with low light and moving subjects (and moving cameraperson huffing on skates), taking 2,166 photos in the two days plus the dinner on the eve of the event. Whew. I have reduced that to 1,315, and now roadskater.net classic (rsn1.net is the shortcut) is over 30,000 photos. My apologies for the blurs and focus problems in some photos, but I wanted to give as many people a memory of their days in the rain as I could...no matter how fuzzy. It turns out that rough roads and low light make for jittery camera shots. It couldn't be ME that's the problem! Anyway, I hope you love some of the photos.

The 3D route map with thumbnails needs a little work on the route track, and it's a huge file, but go get it if you want to (you'll need Google Earth to use it).

Terrific Photos of 2009 TTT

Thank you for such a comprehensive photo log. Perhaps an 8gb memory card s/b on your birthday wish list?? Some of the finish line gallery mentioned they got good pics of 5 triumphant Roadskaters coming across the line on Day 2. Hopefully those photos will make their way to you for a later posting.
