I trained better, upgraded to 5-wheel racing skates, attended an Eddy clinic, and had a little experience under my belt. I figured I was a shoe-in for a sub-7 hour time. In 2001, I put in a 9-hour time on rec skates, without any drafting at all...

The temperature in Atlanta was 60 at start time, rising to 74 by noon, reaching 80 by 2 pm and 82 degrees by 4 pm. Winds were light in the morning and from the south, rising to around 10 mph from the west at midday, dropping then peaking again to 10-12 in midafternoon from the north.

My photos are up. I may put some comments here later. As usual there are few photos from the last half where it is more hilly more consistently and where it is not, it is more urban and congested. Of course if I want great photographs I&#39;ll probably have to not skate, and if i want to skate great, I&#39;ll probably have to not take my camera and batteries along to distract me! In any case, here are the photos and I hope you find some you love. Maybe soon we&#39;ll have photos integrated into the site, but I didn&#39;t want to hold up the photos for that.

The video is from early March of 2004 and was taken as I drove the route on 2 separate days, with partial coverage on the day between these two. Much will have changed and this is part of the capturing of the history of this great event in its 25th running (counting the Outlaw and other times folk skated the route last year in homage to the days of old). </p><p><a href="http://roadskater.net/a2a-athens-atlanta-route-video" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/a2a-athens-atlanta-route-video#comments AthensToAtlanta.com Athens GA Athens to Atlanta (a2a) Atlanta GA Dacula GA inline skating Lawrenceville GA open road outdoor outdoor inline speed Piedmont Park ATL GA racing Stone Mountain GA touring http://roadskater.net/crss/node/265 Thu, 28 Sep 2006 07:34:34 +0000 roadskater 265 at http://roadskater.net A2A Athens to Atlanta Road Skate Survival Strategy http://roadskater.net/a2a-athens-atlanta-road-skate-survival-strategy <p>OK here come some thoughts on Athens to Atlanta for the over six hour set, with a few nods here and there to speedsters.
