Cycling shoe recommendations

Looking for suggestions on new cycling shoes, please.  Unfortunately Ira and I skidded out on a corner coming home from White House yesterday...both of us are generally OK (road rash and stiff!), but the new Assos shorts from Santa and my shoes are both toast.  What shoes are best for year round riding (cool in the summer and potentially insert for the winter), comfortable, etc.  

Thanks and appreciate any tips

Cycleops fluid Trainer for sale


I'm posting this for my Father-in-law.  This is a very slightly used Cycleops Fluid trainer.  I think he used it once or twice.  It's just the trainer, no skewer or front block.  If you or someone you know is looking to get some miles in during the cold winter months contact me.  He's looking for around $150.

Hey all, Tammy and I are looking at changing our cell provider and would like feedback from you guys and gals, specifically your Sprint coverage in all the places we ride. We really get in the boonies sometimes, and I want to see if Sprint has said boonies covered. Thanks, your comments are appreciated.

Happy Holidays - Click Here
     

    This ride is now part of the Hendersonville Holiday Fest, so it is an honor for our cycling club.  

   If you are not familiar with this ride, it is an opportunity to decorate and light up your bicycle with Holiday lights and ride some of the streets of Hendersonville spreading some holiday cheer.  Everyone who sees us seems amazed at the spectacle!!  This ride is really a bicycle parade.  We have arranged a police escort and the tentative route is less than 10 miles which opens it up for a family activity.  


    Now is a good time to plan your bike d├ęcor and if needed purchase any battery powered lighting that you may need.  In the past we have found lighting at Wal-Mart, Walgreens and some at Lowes and Home Depot.  


   We will ride the same route as last year.  The Police would like to have a participant count, so I am requesting that you post here, or email me at cleaderdad@aol.com with your commitment, and headcount.  I will be in contact with all participants via the blog and email with final route and ride arrangements.

   THE RIDE WILL START EXACTLY AT 5:30.  SO DON'T BE LATE.  HAVE WHEELS READY TO ROLL BY 5:15. 


   Our Charity again this year is Hendersonville Police Department SANTA COP.  Please consider purchasing an unwrapped Toy or Toys for a child 0 to 12 years old.  Deliver your toy to Gary Williams office at 145 Maple Row Blvd. 

    Immediately following the ride, we will have our annual FOGBEE CHRISTMAS PARTY and Bluegrass Bar and Grille.  Family is invited as well to the Christamas Party, whether they ride or not. 

   For website information go to: FOGBEES CHRISTMAS LIGHTS RIDE

  If you have any questions or comments, please contact me at the email above or text me at 615-714-3947.

Veloink Labels ordered

The group order has been placed. They should be in my hands next week sometime. We ordered a total of 34 labels and the company was grateful for the large order. I can't wait to see them all put on our bikes.

Friday, October 28, 2016

Last chance for changes

After all the input received here is the list of labels for the order I will place on Monday. Same as previous posts, only send me new labels or changes if I don't have the info correct. Be sure to check yours on the Veloink website as I don't want to disappoint anyone.

Bike decals

Most of you know about the website "Veloink.com" to order name labels that can be put on your bike, helmet or other cycling gear. I contacted the company and got them to add our FOGBee bee to the available choices. If we put a order of 20 or more we can get a 50% discount ($5.00 a sheet vs. $10) for a sheet of 4 labels. I would have to send in the list of names in order to receive this discount  I am sending this out to gauge the level of interest.
