Free(*) Skating Workshop in Raleigh, NC -- March 24, 2007

I've been cooking this up for a little while now and want to make the announcement even though the website isn't quite polished yet....

I will be teaching a skating workshop in Raleigh, NC the weekend of March 24, 2007.  This workshop is targetting beginner speedskaters and recreational/fitness skaters.  The workshop is part of my fundraising for Tour to Tanglewood, which benefits Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Tribble Mill Park, Grayson, GA

Any skaters who find themselves amongst the lonely mansions and shiny metal boxes of Gwinnett County, GA, might want to check out Tribble Mill Park as a little piece of heaven plus hills.

How do the US10K Classic Hills compare to Silver Hill at A2A?

How do these hills compare to the Silver Hill at Athens to Atlanta (A2A)?

This question refers back to eebee's post about the US10K in Atlanta:

Foolhardy Skaters Finish Four Miles of Sixty-Two at Dusk on Silver Comet Trail

Elizabeth and I missed the chance to travel to Winston-Salem for the T2T training ride last weekend, but we did a couple of fun things instead.

On Saturday we went out to Tribble Mill Park, near a great intersection non-town named New Hope (as the GPS map and church names nearby confirm) which we had been to before, but some time ago. It is now a nice place to skate if you don't mind some twisty hills on multiuse pathway! We made our way fine going counterclockwise, but think we'll try clockwise next time to see if it might be better due to the route and elevations. If you're willing to brake or scrub wheels, it's an awesome 3.2 miles, in fact. There is some roadway there that might be interesting too, particularly a way hilly loop, but we'd need to look at it again to see if it's safe enough to try. I'm sure we'll have more on this later.

Absolutely: Railtrails Equal Ecotourism and Economic Revitalization

Absolutely. The Anniston Star gets it right in their opinion that shows their excitement about the "bridge in the middle of nowhere" and the paving of the last sections between Anniston AL and Smyrna GA hopefully in 2007. We've been there and we've seen the growth in ways we love and hate, but have to look upon with awe.

The Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) and Marathon Training

This post is partly for people out there on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) who want to find out more about getting sufficient and efficient carbs for marathon, or extremely long-distance training and events. This means no sugar, wheat, gluten, grains, corn, or potatoes. I put "marathon" in the title for the benefit of any SCD runners who might stumble across this. Obviously what I'm gearing up for, the 87 mile Athens to Atlanta Roadskate, is three and one third times marathon distance. A Google search didn't turn up anything useful for marathon training and SCD. So I thought I'd put my experience out there for anybody else searching.

London gets new "go cycling" marketing campaign

This sounds like a major commitment from a leading metropolitan area to boost cycling. I can't tell you how good that could be for all of us if cycling can start to be taken seriously (again?), and particularly if law enforcement will support the efforts of roadsharers everywhere. It's a long way before auto drivers will see inline roadskaters the same as roadcyclists, even, but the more it improves for cyclists, the better for all human powered transportation modes. Of note in this article is increased funding. Hope it turns out great! Blake
