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.

Speed Map: Tour de Kale Bike Ride Inline Skate Denton NC

We love that Tour de Kale! Sorry so long getting anything from my data and photos, but working for money is a bummer even when it's for really worthwhile causes. Here's the speed map from TdK, and we almost cracked 40 mph with just eebee and myself together at the time. MikeB was there and Northinsouth had daughter NorthinsouthJr there riding the bike and trailer, respectively. Beyond that I'll have to look back at my photos, but I remember meeting the guy that owned the whole place (Denton Farm Park) and he said he "worked there" in typical marvelous understatement! Now that's good people! It was great to see Kale and the rest of the family and friends so close to him, and to be so incredibly welcome just because we were on skates! We missed our skatepals and couldn't keep up with the Northinsouth crew or MikeB, but we had an awesome hot skate in the country day...and by the time we saw MikeB again we were really getting overheated but enjoying the sweat and toil of the road.

Tour de Kale 2008, Denton, NC Bike Ride Inline Skate Review

Denton Farmpark, Denton, NC is becoming a home away from home for me every June. Hundreds of cyclists and a skater or three met at the park out in the country to honor Kale's superbly supported charity ride last Saturday, June 21st 2008. Let me tell you, the Denton folk know how to mix gatorade at the rest stops! Not a watered-down barrell out there.

Denton Orator Mentions Inline Skaters in Tour de Kale Bike Ride

I'm not sure how long it will last, but a couple of Roadskater.net charity team inline skaters were mentioned prominently in the recent Denton Orator and on their website front page:

[It didn't last long because we took so long to check it out! See comments below for Ms. Ayers' article. The newspaper is sending at least one copy for us to hoard. Please visit dentonorator.com anyway!]

If you're curious about this event, just promise yourself you'll go out and do it! Beautiful, hilly terrain, rural roads, an entire town volunteering support for the ride, prizes, food, and a great cause...

Here's my report from last year's event:

Event website: http://tourdekale.com/

Last year Kale himself made it very clear to us that we should come back in 2008 - and bring a bunch more skaters with us!
