Roadskater.net Photos Revolved: Faster, Better, Fetching Views of the People, Days and Places That Brightened My Life

A few years ago I had to shake things up as the old joys were no more....at least for a while. Thanks to three lovely young skater friendgirls, I started skating, and it turned out I was quickly more addicted than they were.  The Year of Skating Dangerously saved my joy. To honor that time, I present: http://roadskater.net/rsn/photos/index.htm .

I was looking to create something other than what I had tried before, which had all dried up. So I bought a cheap digital camera and decided I would take photos and edit them and post them mostly without comment (hard for me!). The collection grew to 31,000 photos! Before September 11, airline flights were cheaper than the gasoline to drive some places. I had free places to land on floors. I went. I took photos. I edited them.

Tour To Tanglewood for MS 2012 Training Bike Ride Dates

This is the kick in the too-tight skate pants that I needed, to give my skating some relevance and scale again this year. The MS Society has posted the training ride dates for the Summer:

Hot Tires in the City: Tanglewood Bike Training Ride and Heat Exhaustion, Dehydration or Rest Stop Calories

If any of you reading this has experience with heat exhaustion or dehydration I would appreciate your comments. Yesterday ended badly and yesterday’s headache is still with me. I’m wrapped up in a blanket with the A/C cranked on meat-locker cold.

It was already 82 degrees at 7:30 Saturday morning when I packed up my bike to head to the Tour to Tanglewood Training Ride. There was no way I was going to miss the ride hosted by my favorite bike shop, Cycles de Oro. I prepared for the ride with a decent night’s sleep and a protein shake packed with oats and almond milk. I rode with two full water bottles, each containing a small scoop of Shaklee Performance, and my last pack of GU. Distance choices were 10, 20 and 36. I was happy to learn that I didn’t have to make the choice between 20 and 36 until 9 miles in, at the first rest stop.

Monroe Georgia Bike Ride for Charity April 9th 2011: Tony Serrano Century Ride

2011.04.09 7:30 am
America/New York

This is my second attempt to bring some attention to this notable ride. While looking for links the first time around I revisited the awful circumstances surrounding Mr. Serrano's death, and got so upset I had to quit and go do something else. But who am I to give up and run away? For the three involved in this accident, it's the least I can do to highlight this ride.

There is day-of registration, at $40 for all distances (10, 37, 62 & 100 mile options). Proceeds to benefit Healing Angels Medical Clinic, Cycling Safety, and the Georgia Bicycle Advocacy Network.

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

2011.10.22 7:00 am

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.

Challenge of the Centuries 2010 Charity Bike Ride Skate Report

 

Sooo, I was the lonely only skater at the Challenge of the Centuries.  And that was fine because it left all the comments of “what you are doing is amazing” all for myself.  Ha!  No, the bikers where great there, and even the traffic was very considerate.  I had a good time talking to people, and felt very welcome.  I almost brought my camera on the road with me, and now regret I didn’t.  So many cool things.  And so many lessons learned.

Sparky's Tater Ride Greensboro NC Triad Free Weekly No-Drop Bike Rides Skates for Beginners, Restarters & Leisure Cyclists

Are you sitting on the couch wondering how to get started? Would you maybe get out there if you could get out there with people like you instead of people who were like you a few years ago and now are all obsessed with speed on bikes or skates and have mostly forgotten the idea of leisure or beginner or restarter rides and skates? Well, Greensboro is lucky to have a guy who's doing what I would do if I were a cyclist or could get them to come out and ride with the skaters: 

Sparky's not getting faster at these rides, and that's the point.
