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

We had a great time and as usual I took a ton of photos and now am a bit too tired to write anything yet!

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.

Photos and Maps from 95-Mile Inline Skate on Silver Comet Trail and Chief Ladiga Trail: Smyrna, GA to Anniston, Alabama

I've just finished and uploaded 835 or so photos of our 95-mile excursion from July 4, 2009. The vast majority of the route was railtrail, with some exceptions we noted elsewhere on the site. Perhaps more comments on the photos later. For now, here's the link... http://roadskater.net/photos/silver-comet-chief-ladiga-trail-inline-skat... The 3D thumbnail map lets you see smaller versions of the photos where they were taken on a Google Earth map (requires Google Earth from earth.google.com)...

The Chief Ladiga Trail: A 40-Mile Prelude to a Scenic Marathon Sprint

Here are some thoughts and memories of our skate-excursion into Alabama, before they fizzle out.

Let me start by saying I'd normally avoid skating 60+ miles in the deep South with temperatures in the mid-90s. However, the Chief Ladiga ("lah-DYE-gah") Trail in Alabama has some version of a water faucet at least every ten miles, and if you're squeamish about drinking strange water, dumping it onto your head works perfectly well.

Inline Skating 67 Miles on the Chief Ladiga Trail in Alabama: Photos and Maps

We had a fine day out, eebee and myself, from mighty hot to excitingly electric weather. Lots to tell but who knows if I'll find the time. Meanwhile here are 410 photos that are geolocated on a Google Earth KMZ file.

We got started around midday when it was getting hot indeed. We drove to Piedmont, AL, where there's a Welcome Center. We planned to skate the 40 miles down and back to the Anniston, AL end, eat some sandwiches and have cool drinks at the car, then do the 27 miles or so out and back to the trailhead of the Silver Comet at the state line with GA.

Listen Up Inline Skaters & Cyclists: Grow Your Sport or Ruin It For Everyone

My legs were tired and a wall of rain was on the way, but somehow I got out to Greensboro Country Park in time for 10 miles or so before dark, and almost before the display of lightning flashes that had me worried more than usual about getting zapped. I saw no way my 100mm wheels would protect me from a spark arc.

Photos, Speed Topo Map, 3-D Thumbnail Map from Tour de Lions 2009 Bike Ride Inline Skate (Skride) in Grays Chapel NC

The 215 photos that made the final cut for the Tour de Lions 2009 gallery are now geocoded, thanks to eebee's .tcx file. My 305 was locked up and I didn't yet know how to unlock it (see http://roadskater.net/how-reboot-garmin-forerunner-305-locked-when-recharging-cradle-and-wont-power for info). As a result, there are some photos where she was up ahead waiting on me to finish snappin' so the location is not exact, but they're close.
