Photos from the Wednesday Night Skate on the American Tobacco Trail August 10 2011

We had a great time with Jay up from Atlanta. With Skatey-Mark leading out then serving as sweep alternately, I think in all we had seven, including GotSkates Tom. I don't think I can call all the names, sadly, so I'd better stop there. But two others I know I have skated the trail with before, and one of the guys besides Mark had done the Carolina Century before as well. It was a fun bunch and I enjoyed not being in charge or on home turf but being a visitor.

We saw lots of cyclists including roadies and kids, and lots of families out using the trail. But it always felt good, never negative, to me. I guess I was in the middle most of the time, sometimes going up to the front and others going all the way back. It was a great time.

I made a tough decision to pass up Mexican food to go over to check out the possibility of going to see the Toad the Wet Sprocket show at the Cat's Cradle. See comments for

American Tobacco Trail

Great that you got to meet up with skater friends old and new in Durham! What shape was the trail in? Did you get to see any of the trail extensions or construction?
