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.

28 Miles Inline Skating at Greensboro Country Park Before Storms Zap the City

This weekend we thought we were going to perhaps go to the Mock Orange Bikes hosted Tour to Tanglewood Training Ride. But research on their website where directed to see cue sheets showed it included some perhaps busy roads (especially coming back...Reynolda and Polo), plus some challenges we've done before with downhills into intersections that are possible but not exactly tons of fun, and no route longer than 35 miles, which means no group might be coming in from 50 while we're coming in from 35. So when the rain came through overnight and in the early morning, we decided to pass. Sad to miss our friends, but we felt we should do what we know, and we were not even certain of the exact route they'd use for the far end of the out and back from their shop (did it go out Kiger and back Red Bank or mostly on Red Bank with part on a road we didn't know?). We should research sooner and better next time.

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.

There's a FREE training ride in Lewisville this weekend. It's free even if you don't sign up for the Tour to Tanglewood for MS. These training rides are usually as good or better than rides you have to pay to attend. Rollout is 8 a.m. and registration starts at 7 a.m. or so. They roll promptly and rarely have been known to even roll a couple of minutes early maybe, so it's good to be ready. I don't know the routes or distances, sorry. We'll likely do a route in the mid-30-mile range if there is one and if there is also a longer distance. Anyway that's what I know. * Ride Starts: 8am

Photos and Maps for Paceline Bicycles Greensboro Tour to Tanglewood Training Ride Inline Skate 2009 Plus Country Park

We had five Roadskater.net skaters and at least one Roadskater.net cyclist at the Greensboro Paceline Bicycles training ride for T2T. It was a nice day out with no rain but plenty of shade for much of the time. All five of us went for the longer, 29-mile, option, wishing for a bit more, even.
