Photos and Maps for Bicycle Toy & Hobby Sales High Point NC 2009 Tour to Tanglewood Training Bike Ride & Inline Skate

We had a super time at the Bicycle Toy & Hobby Sales Tour to Tanglewood training ride inline skate. This year there was an improved long route of 43 miles. There was some additional gatorback to do on roads familiar from previous Tours, but after this, the rest of the day was on supersweet asphalt, with some challenging uphills and fun and safe downhills too. When we got back to the shop there was so much food we really didn't need to have lunch (though later on we went to Sir Pizza for small versions of their awesome pies).

Check out the 490 photos here...

Photos and Maps for Carolina Century 2009 Recon 51-Miler Greensboro NC Tour to Tanglewood Training Bike Ride & Inline Skate

Here are photos from the 51-mile recon skate and bike last weekend. We did the 51 route to see how the markings and road surfaces were. We came away feeling some surfaces were slightly worse but some major ones were much better. Overall, I'd say I can live with some patching that was rougher last fall but has had some sealing done, and one of the roads I considered taking out of the route has been made into supersweet asphalt now. It was a fun day out with beautiful skies and great companionship with skatey-mark, northinsouth and timv joining in.

Tour to Tanglewood 2008 Sunday Speed Topo Route Map: Bike Ride Inline Skate for Multiple Sclerosis

The Tour to Tanglewood 2008 was shortened to Sunday-only due to the storm, Hanna, which made conditions unpredictable and untenable for an official Saturday ride from Greensboro to Clemmons. The Sunday event had three distances of roughly 25ish, 46 and 74 miles. I took the 46 mile route with eebee and we took it at touring pace, snapping lots of photos and taking in the sights along the way. My speed topo map is at this link: http://roadskater.net/photos/tour-to-tanglewood-2008-greensboro-clemmons...

Bicycle Toy and Hobby Sales Tour to Tanglewood Training Ride 2008 Photos Speed Map and Topo Thumbnails

Bicycle Toy & Hobby Sales gaves us a great skate and ride last weekend, even considering some rough road (not the worst gatorback by far, but not as great as the rest) on the spur out to and around Abbotts Creek. We had nice skaters, 4 veterans of T2T and 5 who have yet to experience the glorious weekend...but most plan to.
