It&#39;s downhill out of town and uphill back into town along mostly five-lane and four-lane roads with mostly good natured motorists along the way. Out in the country, the route followed familiar Tour to Tanglewood roads in some places. A rougher surface loop proved a tough blend with the hottest temps of a T2T TR this year, but we made it fine.</p><p><a href="http://roadskater.net/bicycle-toy-hobby-high-point-nc-2007-tour-tanglewood-tr-photos" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/bicycle-toy-hobby-high-point-nc-2007-tour-tanglewood-tr-photos#comments Roadskater.net 2007 North Carolina (NC) charity events High Point NC Horneytown NC open road outdoor photography Piedmont Triad Region (NC) roadcycling roadskating Tour to Tanglewood (t2t ttt) touring http://roadskater.net/crss/node/575 Fri, 31 Aug 2007 07:50:15 +0000 roadskater 575 at http://roadskater.net Rolling in Randolph Bike Ride Inline Skate Asheboro NC September 29 2007 http://roadskater.net/rolling-randolph-bike-ride-inline-skate-asheboro-nc-september-29-2007 <div class="event-nodeapi"> <div class="event-start dtstart" title="2007-09-29T12:00:00Z"><label>Start: </label> 2007.09.29 8:00 am </div> </div> <div class="event-nodeapi"> <div class="event-end dtend" title="2007-09-29T19:00:00Z"><label>End: </label> 2007.09.29 3:00 pm </div> </div> <div class="event-nodeapi"> <div class="event-tz"><label>Timezone: </label>US/Eastern </div> </div> <div class="event-nodeapi"> <div class="event-start dtstart" title="2007-09-29T12:00:00Z"><label>Start: </label> 2007.09.29 8:00 am </div> </div> <div class="event-nodeapi"> <div class="event-end dtend" title="2007-09-29T19:00:00Z"><label>End: </label> 2007.09.29 3:00 pm </div> </div> <div class="event-nodeapi"> <div class="event-tz"><label>Timezone: </label>US/Eastern </div> </div> <p>I just wanted to share an event here in Randolph county. The sk/ride starts out in Asheboro and goes through various parts of Randolph county. The roads are usually pretty decent but there are a lot of hills, great if your into that. I have spoken to the director and it is ok for skaters to come. I think this would be a great way to increase the awareness of skating in our area.If you are interested post a note here and I can help answer questions.  Registration costs $20 in advance $25 day of...inexpensive, and you get a T-shirt while they last.</p><p><a href="http://roadskater.net/rolling-randolph-bike-ride-inline-skate-asheboro-nc-september-29-2007" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/rolling-randolph-bike-ride-inline-skate-asheboro-nc-september-29-2007#comments Roadskater.net 2007 North Carolina (NC) Asheboro NC bike rides charity events open road outdoor Piedmont Triad Region (NC) roadcycling roadskating skrides (skateable bike rides) http://roadskater.net/crss/node/568 Tue, 21 Aug 2007 19:55:39 +0000 andrewinnc 568 at http://roadskater.net Clemmons Bicycle 2007 Tour to Tanglewood TR Bike Ride Inline Skate Photos http://roadskater.net/clemmons-bicycle-2007-tour-tanglewood-tr-bike-ride-inline-skate-photos <p>As I&#39;ve often said, the Clemmons Bicycle T2T TR route in the mid-30-mile range is my favorite, and this year I&#39;d say that is still true, despite some nice routes at other shops. So when the weather turned out cooler it looked like another relatively easy day compared with what might have been. This summer we&#39;ve been very lucky at least three times, maybe four (Tour de Lions, Tour de Kale, Cycles de Oro T2T TR and Clemmons Bicycle T2T TR), to have unseasonably cool temperatures.</p><p><a href="http://roadskater.net/clemmons-bicycle-2007-tour-tanglewood-tr-bike-ride-inline-skate-photos" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/clemmons-bicycle-2007-tour-tanglewood-tr-bike-ride-inline-skate-photos#comments Roadcyclist.net 2007 North Carolina (NC) bike rides charity events Clemmons NC heart rate monitors (hrm) inline skating open road outdoor Piedmont Triad Region (NC) rest stops roadcycling roadskating skrides (skateable bike rides) sports event management sweet tea http://roadskater.net/crss/node/567 Tue, 21 Aug 2007 00:51:08 +0000 roadskater 567 at http://roadskater.net Spinz Bike Shop 2007 Tour to Tanglewood TR Photos Bike Ride & Inline Skate http://roadskater.net/spinz-bike-shop-2007-tour-tanglewood-tr-photos-bike-ride-inline-skate <p>I enjoyed the Spinz Ride a lot and had a chance to share a nice sunny morning with our newest local Roadskater in the hills around High Point and Archdale, NC.

Once we got started, they were still waiting some, as I think I blew my adrenaline just getting there! We had some great roads with moderate hills and some medium gatorback on one section, which also had leaves and limbs from a storm the night before it seems. It was great to have a three-pack of skaters and nice that Craig and Andy got to meet.

After 3 days of 100-degree sunbaked highs, Greensboro got a milder day of clouds and cooler temperatures. We skaters got a thrill as the Team Erika lead out group held back from passing until we were down the hill and into Latham Park. We had taken the lead only to keep out of the way in the parking lot, and were pleasantly surprised at this gesture from the entire group of riders to lead out parade style until into the park. There seemed to be no plan for this, but rather something Team Erica decided as we rolled.</p><p><a href="http://roadskater.net/cycles-de-oro-2007-tour-tanglewood-tr-photos-bike-ride-inline-skate" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/cycles-de-oro-2007-tour-tanglewood-tr-photos-bike-ride-inline-skate#comments Roadskater.net 2007 North Carolina (NC) charity events Cycles de Oro Greensboro NC National MS Society open road outdoor photography Piedmont Triad Region (NC) roadcycling roadskating skrides (skateable bike rides) Tour to Tanglewood (t2t ttt) http://roadskater.net/crss/node/553 Sun, 12 Aug 2007 05:45:50 +0000 roadskater 553 at http://roadskater.net Tour de Lions 2007 Photos http://roadskater.net/tour-de-lions-2007-photos <p>As many of you know, Tour de Lions is one of our favorites for a yearly visit with great people, exercising for a good cause, and getting to know a local community and its people as we work together on behalf of others and for the great feelings we get doing so.

I&#39;m sitting in Greensboro&#39;s <a href="http://www.centercitypark.org" target="_blank">Center City Park</a> using the Wifi connection, and I must say this is nice. At about 8pm, the light is fading and the temperature is cooling a bit from a nice warm day.
