2006 A2A Journals

In 2006, the weather was light rain before the event, wet roads in the first thirty miles or so, with sunshine most of the day. 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. Please add your story to this chapter of the Athens to Atlanta History Project! After you've written and posted your story, use the Outline tab to select "2006 A2A Journals" as the parent of your article. If your story is for another year, contact me or leave it be and I will add a Chapter for that year. Blake

Post A2A 2006 All Safe Plus Photo Links

OK we are all safe I think, all of us Roadskater.net folk, and others we know. Nobody has posted here probably because we're all catching up on rest, reading other people's posts, or editing photos we took. Roadskater.net picked up some great publicity I think due to the fact that Erica listed us as her team. Whether or not this ever happens again, it was a joy to see a Tour to Tanglewood veteran take the big prize, or at least to hear of it. There are many stories to tell, and though I had my worst time ever it was one of the best times doing it. I can't recall an A2A I didn't love.

OK here come some thoughts on Athens to Atlanta for the over six hour set, with a few nods here and there to speedsters. I hope to have some other goodies but may not be able to get to it before this year's event! Here are some tips:

Tribble Mill Park, Grayson, GA

Any skaters who find themselves amongst the lonely mansions and shiny metal boxes of Gwinnett County, GA, might want to check out Tribble Mill Park as a little piece of heaven plus hills.

How to train for the hills of GA in a flat state like MI!

Does anyone have any thoughts or experience on ways to train for hills (both up and down) when you live in a place without very many?

My particular areas of concern:

- Downhills - fear of out of control speeds and speed wobbles
