A Simple Introduction to High Intensity Interval Training for Cardiovascular Fitness

I added a new sidebar section on training and some titles look pretty good, but I did not expect too much when I clicked on the article below from fireengineering.com, but I was pleasantly surprised. Yes, it's a simple introduction, but sometimes that is what we need...simple...not easy...and a reminder that training is how we stay fit, but also how we prepare for a variety of situations, especially athletic events.

4th Annual Carolina Century Bike Ride Inline Skate October 22 2011 Greensboro NC

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.

Cannondale Bicycle Manufacturing Fabricating and CNC Shop Photos

Dale of Cycles de Oro posted this photo link to local some groups . I take it Cannondale bicycle manufacturer is up for sale. Meanwhile, if you like to see where things were made, there's a lot to see here. I think the sale is over so I'm not sure how long these will be up. Boring for some; heaven for others!

How did the Minnesota Vikings' Metrodome Collapse?

Since the spectacular collapse of the Minnesota Vikings' stadium on Sunday morning (Dec 12th 2010), I have been itching to find out exactly what caused the teflon and fiberglass bubble to burst. Or rip.

Inline Skating From New Jersey to California for Charity

Here's a story about an ice speed skater, Al Schiller, who skated "across the country" for charity. It raises some questions and sparks some thoughts...even some doubts...but is nonetheless interesting and for an important charitable cause. So here are a few thoughts and questions. I'd love to hear your impressions! 

It's great that Carley Dryden did such a long and thorough interview. I thought for the most part it was good coverage based on a nice conversation. It is clear she is friendly to the idea and to the skater. My reactions:

Tater Rides Again: Country Park and the Scotland Neck Country Roads Bike Tour

If your weight is keeping you on the couch and off your bike (or skates), I've got the ride for you. Thanks to the wide reach of the Tour to Tanglewood, an annual skating and cycling event that raises money for Multiple Sclerosis, I met a group called "The Taters" a few weeks ago on a Sunday afternoon when I was unpacking my bike to ride at Greensboro's Country Park. Roadskater and eebee were out of town and I was determined not to miss a chance to ride on one of the first sunny and very warm days of spring.

Buying a New vs Used Car 2010: 0% Financing? Honda Civic LX; Hyundai Elantra GLS; Mazda Mazda3 i Touring; Toyota Corolla LE

After twelve years driving my 1998 Saturn SL with manual transmission, the poor thing finally died at about 240,000 miles. I have spent the past three months immersed in the car-buying process, having never gone through it entirely on my own before. About halfway through it I felt like a horizontal asymptote: forever approaching the point of zero but destined never to actually get there.
