Presentation in Durham, NC and a S24O!
Howdy y’all, we are writing from Winston-Salem, where we’ve spent the last two days with various readers getting a feel of this historic city. We’re headed to Greensboro, NC (we’re still looking for a place to stay, so email us if you can help) tomorrow where we hope to visit some of the local bike shops. From there, we’ll pass through Burlington on our way to Durham. We’ve been working with a local bike advocate with setting up a presentation (thanks Jack!). Here are the details:
We’ve setup a Facebook Event page here. Please RSVP so we can get a sense of the numbers.
Here are the details:
When: Friday, September 10th, 2010
Where: Temple Building, 302 W Main Street, Durham, NC

S24O Durham – September 11, 2010
In addition to our presentation, we’ll be doing an S24O (an overnight bike camping trip) the next day on Saturday, September 11th, 2010. It will be about a 20 mile ride from our starting location and we’ll leave around 2pm and should arrive at the campsite around 4 or 5. We’ll cook out, swap stories and have a fun time.
The last time we did an S24O was in Austin, TX and it was an awesome time. We had lots of first time bike campers who got to try out their new gear and get a taste of bike touring. We’ll meet at the ATT trail head at Fayetteville Rd and NC 54 in Durham, just off I-40 and ride down the trail through Durham, Chatham and Wake Counties to Jordan Lake. Campsites are already reserved. To book a spot, please email Jack directly.

I’ve changed my plans that weekend to join in the festivities in Durham – glad you’ll be taking time to enjoy our fair city. Looks like you’re already enjoying Carrboro and Chapel Hill.

@Tanner — you’re right to issue that caution, but we’ll ride on a few local roads to access the trail further south, probably Herndon to Scott King and then to the trail.

You do realize that that’s the southern end of a break in the trail? The bridge over I-40 has not been built yet (current estimate is end of 2011). And, to get to where the trail picks up is fairly nasty. Large roads with lots of cars.
