36 Miles at Greensboro Country Park Thanks to Staff Who Kept the Road Clear After Hurricane Irene

This weekend we hoped to do lots of miles roadish and as mentioned yesterday (http://roadskater.net/how-i-wasted-or-enjoyed-morning-danny-macaskill-tr...), we bailed on the training ride and ended up feeling OK about doing alternative activities. But we still needed to skate. So we went for Indian food, then went for a walk in the Dollar Tree, ha, then decided to check the weather.

It was windy with some threats of rain, but the radar was clear so far, so we headed up for Country Park. When we got there, we caught a ride on the tram, which was driven by Geoff, who played dixieland jazz on the CD player for passengers in the tram. We told Geoff we were thinking about inline skating but wanted to check out the road junk first.

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.

Tour to Tanglewood Training Bike Ride Inline Skate July 24 2010 Cycle Therapy Lewisville NC

Roadskater and I skated about 34 miles at the Lewisville, NC Cycle Therapy Tour to Tanglewood training ride this weekend. I hadn't skated the majority of the roads on this route before, and was pleasantly surprised to find them relatively traffic-free. Even as we plodded back into town, there was only a minor amount of traffic, with no (audibly) angry drivers.
