    Incredibly moving event. People with MS are some of the bravest people I have ever met. I have already signed up for next year.

      They were running a $20.00 special at the main booth. I signed up and received a T-shirt

      Well darn. Guess I should have wandered over there. I usually go to the awards banquet and will sign up then. They usually run the $20 special then as well.

    Honestly, words just cannot describe how incredible this event is to all who participate. It is so well organized, routes wonderful, police escorts at busy intersections, food delish, the topnotch reststops, sag wagons constantly visible; and the volunteers who make this event memorable. All I can say, is I hope with the monies raised, that it does help those who are afflicted with MS to have a better life..

      You said it all! I agree 100 percent. I hope they keep the same Saturday meal. It is always good! Never tire of chicken Marsala and pasta!

      I couldn't have said it better! This was my first year with Team BB&T and I really enjoyed their whole team experience. Because I always have a great time at this event, I must admit I get kind of depressed when the event is over. Looking forward to next year!

    Best ride ever... TTT exceeded my expectations. Had a great time and ride with the best of friends, awesome food, wine, beer, dancing, laughing and almost a hot air balloon ride. We all missed Vanessa but are looking forward to riding 100 miles next year with a group of her. John you Rocked this weekend :-)

    • John C.

      I would love to do the 100 with you guys. Have to make sure Andi, Randy, Susan and Adam are there also. They kept me alive and rolling during this years century ride.

    It was awesome. Roads were well marked and attended. Great music. Great Food (if you were able to get it -- the food was gone for some doing the long rides). Staff and other riders were exceptional.

    Rode Mount Bike for 15 years but just got on road last 10 months and think I like road better now! Both GREAT!

    We have 4-5 people on the Novant Health and UNC School of the Arts team who are going for 100 miles on Saturday. We hope to ride between 17-18 mph. If you are interested in joining us come by the Novant Health tent before the ride. The more we have the easier the ride will be.
    Remember to wear your stirrups to keep that ride moving on those hills. :)

      Hi Rolland. Hope all is good with you. I won't be doing the tour this year. However, it is a great ride and the 100 miler is a super route. Personally, I think it is very well laid out with a nice mix of terrain and it is also a fun 100 to do. I have done it and totally enjoyed it. I think you guys will do a good job with it too. If we were doing the event we would jump right in there with you all. Have a great ride, be safe and knock it out!

    • Rolland P.

      I actually meant to say spurs. We have some plastic ones to wear on the ride. Bet that will keep people from riding to close at the start. :-)

    Team BB&T is rocking it again this year -- the plans for the team tent sound amazing. Team captain, Tina Kimball, sent out a note today and asked us to recruit -- 00000000000000000000000000000000000000 -- oops, a cat stepped on the keyboard (anybody want to adopt a kitten?) anyway -- we're trying to win a keg of beer! Last year we had prizes, wine, beer, etc plus food and this year we'll have TWO masseuse (don't know how to spell that one).

      Hi Judy I met a new friend who invited me to join his BB&T team, after reading your message I think I will join you guys. I'm almost done raising all my funds.

      2 · July 29, 2013

    • Judy J.

      It is the BEST team at the Tour of Tanglewood -- me and Patti and maybe Sandy will be riding. I will be out there for sure!

  • Steven N.

    I'm on Team BB&T...anyone is welcome to join.

    • Cindy

      Glad you will be there, Judy, even if you aren't riding. Judy is right; the BB&T tent/team was a lot of fun. Tina is a great captain, keeping us updated with things going on, stocking the tent with food, drinks, etc. If you join the BB&T team you will be glad you did.

    A lot of the meetup riders joined the BB&T Team last year -- and we were treated very very well. The team captain is Tina Kimbell and her email is: [masked]
    I wish I could do both but no way I think I can raise $500!
