We have great volunteers who are veterans of Tour to Tanglewood, plus we put our own special spin on the ride... 10 hours of support so you can take your time and have an epic day on wheels. There's a lot more information on the carolinacentury.com website, and there are a few articles here on roadskater.net as well. Come join us on wheels or give us a day of your time to help people with MS, and to earn some fundraising for YOUR 2013 Tour to Tanglewood fundraising.
Look for the 2011 Carolina Century on 10/22/11. A proven EPIC event. More details to come......most certainly. :-) http://carolinacentury.com
[Ed: Thanks, MikeB, for putting this out there early! From here on out this is roadskater speaking.]
With a bike to skate ratio of 15 to 1 or so...This is a bicycle event designed by roadskater to be compatible with slower or heavier cyclists, fast cyclists looking for a rolling but fast course with few challenging turns and no switchbacks, and experienced roadskaters. The Carolina Century even has a sherpa/domestique who will ride in support of a first-time centurion (or a pack of them). Thanks to John Connor for being the Carolina Century guide. We'll be rolling along near the back to make sure that the rest stops stay open and well stocked.

I'm still not ready to write about the Carolina Century in all its glory, but I have published almost a thousand more photos from both the 2009 Carolina Century and the Today We Ride for Dave 2009 David Sherman Memorial Ride, so I wanted to share those links.
I can promise better weather for the 3rd annual Carolina Century! It was epic. The Carolina Century photos are a good way to see part of the route, with trees, barns, horses, llamas, a few people and lots of mist inside and outside the lens.
Check out my 570 photos from the Carolina Century at:
The photos are from three cameras in time sequence, the vast majority (510) from my road cam and the rest at the start/finish at Gospel Baptist Church.
Here's the kmz file for Google Earth for 510 geolocated thumbnails from my road cam (additional photos available on the above collection):
