Here are the links to the photos and maps for the Paceline Bicycles Winston-Salem Tour to Tanglewood Training Ride and Inline Skate 2009.

NCBC (North Carolina Bike Club) Summer Rally Report: 40-Mile Inline Skate

This past Sunday, I skated in the annual NCBC Summer Rally.  I've done this event several times in the past and it has always been a good time.  All of the events that the NC Bike Club hosts are well organized, and I've always felt welcome as a skater to participate.  The cyclists are great too, many of them throwing compliments as they passed.  To some, seeing a skater on the road with them was definitely a novelty.  I'm also happy to report that I experienced no negative incidents all day, be it from cyclists, pedestrians, or drivers.

Bont Generation 3 (Gen 3) 100mm Inline Speed Skate Wheels: That Clicking Sound Could Be the Hubs Cracking, Breaking & Shredding

Just at the end of the Friday "Lonely Hearts Skate" at Country Park with timv the night before the Tour de Lions, I had noticed an odd clicking or rubbing sound coming from my frames, I thought. When I got home I took a quick look but that doesn't always mean much when it's me looking and I'm distracted happily.

Roadskater.net Cloverleaf Inline Skating and Bike Route from Bur-Mil Pool Aquatic Center Greensboro NC

I agree with timv that Bur-Mil pool is a good spot to park. There's a small restroom over by the picnic area that is often open, and a water fountain, I think, all accessible by skates/bikes. We do a route I call the cloverleaf. Here's how that goes... R on Bur-Mil Club rd out of parking lot L onto Owl's Roost Rd X (cross) over Bicentennial Tr (caution) S on Owl's Roost into newish houses C (circle back) cul du sac and return optional slightly downhill cul... L on Owl's Roost Ct C cirle back after cul du sac L on Owl's Roost Rd to continue... or continue...

Hammering Happy Hill Bike Ride Inline Skate June 27 2009 Greensboro Country Park

2009.06.27 9:00 am
US/Eastern
Dale put up a site for the ride. He says rest stops will stay open as long as the paying customers are out. That's good after last year's Tour de Guilford had a rest stop on a spur (extra skating and cycling required off the main course) and when we arrived they had checked out. Admittedly we were slow that day, but had paid and there was no posted cutoff time on that one. It won't be a problem at this ride, I'm confident.

Bicycle Toy and Hobby, High Point NC Tour To Tanglewood for MS Free Bike Training Ride Inline Skate: September 12, 2009

US/Eastern
Part of a series of excellent free skrides (bike rides where skilled inline skaters are welcome) put on by the NC Central Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. The rides are well-supported, marked, and free to all, including those who may not end up participating in the annual Tour to Tanglewood for MS (but you will love the training rides so much you'll be more likely to do the tour after trying most training rides). These rides are for beginners who've trained a little and everyone else on up to experts. SAG and rest stop and bike support team are great.
