A Yellow Bike to Ride Alone

This one's for those who don't want to ride alone. I had a purple sparkluscious banana high-rise for wheelies to the pool. But later, my first 10-speed was an inexpensive, road-stripe yellow Japanese no-namer, with gears by a company nobody knew of called Shimano. "Prob'ly never be any good," some folk said.

I rode hilly miles to the valley for native brook fishing in the clear crystal flows and deep cool shadows of the Blue Ridge. The solo ride and the focused solitude of trout fishing without much success rejuvenated my village self to return the hills.

Rolling in Randolph 50-Mile Route Map with Elevation, Plus Brief Review

Between working on skate boots and frames and work and sleep, I couldn't resist looking at the elevation profile for the Rolling in Randolph (NC) 50-mile skate (bike ride). There really were some steep hills! I may add some comments later, but for now, here's the link to the http://mapmyride.com map:

Rolling in Randolph Review: 50-Mile Skate (Bike Ride)

This was a day of many firsts. The first time anyone has skated in Rolling in Randolph, at least I am pretty sure from the reaction we got from everyone, the first-time Roadskater was represented here, and 50 miles for myself. Blake and Elizabeth met me on a chilly morning as everyone was busy readying themselves for the skate/ride. Many bicyclist showed up for the event, some from as far away as Pittsboro and Charlotte, most of them to ride the century. That is quite an accomplishment on any kind of self-powered wheels. We made some new friends and everyone had a good time.
