Speed Map: Paceline Bicycles Winston-Salem Tanglewood Training Ride Inline Skate

Here's the speed map from the Paceline skride (skatey bike ride) a few weeks ago. Looks like 37 mph is the best we got out of it. As we get some more mass willing to tuck and fly, we should get up over 40 now and then. Still, way fun!

Post-Birthday Skate Update: Inline Skating Greensboro Country Park

First off, thanks to everyone for your supportive comments and interest. The 58.3 mile in 5:29 went off without a hitch, excepting a soreness on the ball of my left foot. I don't have all the vitals from my Forerunner 305 on hand, but will post those soon. I started off at 6:45 am from the lower parking lot at Country Park, which proved to be fortuitous as the heat and humidity really started to assert themselves at my 12:15 p finishing time.

Greensboro Velo Club Red White and Blue Bike Ride Inline Skate Photos, Speed Map, Google Earth Thumbnails

The GVC Red, White & Blue was lots of fun despite hot weather and muscle pain. We started out for 41ish miles but missed a turn (no street sign and no cue sheet mileage info) and gleefully wandered along for quite some time before finding anyone to ask about Ironworks Rd. So we ended up doing 51.5, ending up with hot sun. Here's a link to the photos, the speed map of the route, and a google earth photo thumbnails route map...

Back in the Group Loop: Greensboro Country Park Tuesday Night Inline Skate

Just a brief note to say how wonderful it was to be skating again. I was away due to acute lack of inspiration and laziness as opposed to having a real reason. Bottom line: no excuses.

Teamed up with Blake, Tim, and Andrew at Country Park in Greensboro on Tues. eve and it was wonderful. Everytime I leave for a while and come back, I always wonder why I ever did, leave that is. We all did 7 or 8 laps, talked skating, Garmin 305s, various park attractions, and all the other things that make for endorphin induced grins.

July 19th - SkateStrong Inline Skating/Rollerblading Workshop to Benefit Multiple Sclerosis (National MS Society)

Hi everyone!

 

I am teaching the next SkateStrong workshop on Saturday, July 19th, 2008. Normally, I'd point everyone to the website for details, but the power supply on my webserver (which was just replaced 4 months ago) has died again! So, rather than wait for the replacement to be shipped to me, I thought I should get the word out now so that people can plan accordingly.

Tour de Kale 2008, Denton, NC Bike Ride Inline Skate Review

Denton Farmpark, Denton, NC is becoming a home away from home for me every June. Hundreds of cyclists and a skater or three met at the park out in the country to honor Kale's superbly supported charity ride last Saturday, June 21st 2008. Let me tell you, the Denton folk know how to mix gatorade at the rest stops! Not a watered-down barrell out there.
