OK. Now I can say it. The jerseys have just arrived and they look pretty good methinks, but I have not had time to check them thoroughly. The color is a color you have seen before somewhere in nature. Some are going to love it, and some will hate it. Now it's just a matter of getting them to the people that love it. If you don't love it, don't open it and we'll sell it to someone else. But I hope you love it!

Wow this is some great news. The much-respected Tour de Moore has invited us to join them for the Sandhills Cycling Club's main event hits the road Labor Day. I sent an inquiry earlier this week to Rainbow Cycles and received this reply:
Yes we’d love to have road skaters at our event.  It looks like it will be a perfect day in the 80’s with some clouds.  You can register at active.com or print our registration form from our website sandhillscyclingclub.org.  How many skaters will you bring?

Come out and skate or cycle up to 100 miles with us on September 6th & 7th 2008 to benefit those suffering from the devastating effects of Multiple Sclerosis. After Saturday's skate/ride from Volvo Trucks North America in Greensboro to Tanglewood Park in Clemmons, hang out and mingle with other event participants: eat, drink and be proud of yourself for skating that far. Camp out at the campsite or in a nearby hotel room for much-deserved sleep, wake up next day and give your body another great workout skating (or cycling) back to Greensboro for lunch!

Mileage options: 20, 40 or 60 miles. 60 milers leave at 9am (wow that sounds wonderful after a whole summer of getting up at 5.30am for training rides!), 20 & 40 milers leave at 10am. This is a cycling event but the GVC folks usually let us join in on skates! Not sure how late the course is open, but there are rest stops and a SAG, as well as 'food and drink' at the finish.

Skaters and cyclists and others who participate in active transportation (walkers, runners, skateboarders, more) please come out to the open board meeting of the North Carolina Active Transportation Alliance on January 11 in Raleigh. As we transition into a new federal administration, it's an important time to make your voice heard in support of projects that favor more and safer alternatives to the automobile...especially human-powered alternatives.

Part of a series of excellent free skrides (bike rides where skilled inline skaters are welcome) put on by the NC Central Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. The rides are well-supported, marked, and free to all, including those who may not end up participating in the annual Tour to Tanglewood for MS (but you will love the training rides so much you'll be more likely to do the tour after trying most training rides). These rides are for beginners who've trained a little and everyone else on up to experts. SAG and rest stop and bike support team are great.

Dale put up a site for the ride. He says rest stops will stay open as long as the paying customers are out. That's good after last year's Tour de Guilford had a rest stop on a spur (extra skating and cycling required off the main course) and when we arrived they had checked out. Admittedly we were slow that day, but had paid and there was no posted cutoff time on that one. It won't be a problem at this ride, I'm confident.

A few years back they said they were unable to let skaters join in (or at least pay to join in!) so we skated and sent the money later and didn't return. But last year they invited skaters back. This year, well, I don't have the bucks, so i have to miss it, but it'll be a great one and the Tour to Tanglewood Bicycle Response Team will be there to help out. Should be great. I think it's $40 on the day if you show up.
