Tour to Tanglewood is a 2-day cycling event that is open to experienced inline skaters. Day 1 starts in Greensboro, NC and goes to Tanglewood Park. Available routes on day one are around 40 miles, 60 miles, and 100 miles. (A 20 mile route starting & ending at the park is also available.)

Free camping is available in the park overnight. (Hotels are also nearby if that is preferred.)

Day 2 goes from Tanglewood Park back to Greensboro with a route that is between 40-50 miles. (Exact distance not known yet.)

Participants are required to raise some money for MS Society prior to the event. Meals are included, and they have entertainment (a band) at the campground. To top it all off, they even have free beer at the campground... :)

As a personal note, this is the best run event that I have ever done. It's not an official race, but the roads are great and it's a very scenic tour of the picturesque NC countryside.
