Photos and Thumbnail Route Map: Paceline Bicycles Winston-Salem NC Tanglewood Training Ride Inline Skate

We had a great time at the Paceline Bicycles Winston-Salem Tour to Tanglewood training bike ride and inline skate. New skate friends came out and veterans of the tour we hadn't seen in awhile joined for a nice day of sun and sweat. Here are links to the photos and thumbnail route map for Google Earth:

Photos and Thumbnail Map: Paceline Bicycles Greensboro 2008 Bike T2T Ride Inline Skate

The Paceline Bicycles Greensboro Bike Ride and Inline Skate was a fun, if relatively short (around 28 miles or so...I turned my Garmin Forerunner 305 on a bit late), training ride for the Tour to Tanglewood.

Speed Map: Paceline Bicycles Greensboro 2008 Tour to Tanglewood Training Ride Inline Skate (Heart Rate, Elevation)

Today's skate and ride was moderately hot and covered some familiar territory, if in a different way.

I made the usual speed map, but also an altitude map and a heart rate map, the latter for your fun and amusement. I hit 179 at one point, but wasn't interested in staying there.

I neglected to start my Garmin Forerunner 305 so the start is not included, but we started where we finished, as you might expect.

Great British Rail Deals to London from the Southwest UK

My daughter wants to show her American friend some of the London sights, so we just went and bought our tickets in advance for tomorrow's journey. From the South West of England you can get a weekend deal for four adults at £20 each (I hope the pound sign showed up!), and two children between 5 and 15 years old for £1 each.

Quick Hi from Vacation in Poole, Dorset, England

I came back to my home County of Dorset, England, to help my parents celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. We haven't actually had the celebration yet, and hopefully we won't all kill each other before Saturday :-).

Speed Map: Tour de Kale Bike Ride Inline Skate Denton NC

We love that Tour de Kale! Sorry so long getting anything from my data and photos, but working for money is a bummer even when it's for really worthwhile causes. Here's the speed map from TdK, and we almost cracked 40 mph with just eebee and myself together at the time. MikeB was there and Northinsouth had daughter NorthinsouthJr there riding the bike and trailer, respectively. Beyond that I'll have to look back at my photos, but I remember meeting the guy that owned the whole place (Denton Farm Park) and he said he "worked there" in typical marvelous understatement! Now that's good people! It was great to see Kale and the rest of the family and friends so close to him, and to be so incredibly welcome just because we were on skates! We missed our skatepals and couldn't keep up with the Northinsouth crew or MikeB, but we had an awesome hot skate in the country day...and by the time we saw MikeB again we were really getting overheated but enjoying the sweat and toil of the road.

Speed Map: Clemmons Bicycle NC Tanglewood Training Bike Ride Inline Skate

Here's the speed map from the Tour to Tanglewood Training Ride at the Clemmons Bicycle Shop. We made it up to almost 38 mph at our best but that was solo coming back down Dock Davis the the creek at the railway tracks where the bridge was replaced a couple of years ago. With four together we would have definitely cracked 40, probably 42 or 43. It was a blast and I got some of it on video but it's really no substitute. Clemmons is a great route on some of the Tour roads, sometimes in the opposite direction, sometimes in the same direction, sometimes day one, others, day two. It's good stuff!

Speed Map: Spinz Bike Shop High Point Tanglewood Training Ride Inline Skate

Here's the speed map from the Spinz bike shop training bike ride and skate in High Point, Archdale and Sophia, almost up to Caraway Mountain. We maxed out at 35 or so but some of it felt faster because of the country side, lay of the land, and curve of the roads. There were some stiff climbs and it was a fun day of skatey company even if we weren't all at the same speed all the time. The rain at the end gave eebee a little spark since that's childhood weather for her methinks. Jack, eebee and myself cruised in after the others had departed...I think that was Andrew, Kim and Amy and I hope I'm not missing anyone here...we were not all really together before the start!
