If you're riding a shorter route and want to stagger your start time, please post your intentions.

Our professional photographer could not reschedule and our usual Fogbee backup is on a cruise. You can see the images done by the third stringer on Shutterfly at this link.

Please send me any photos you'd like added to the Pedal for Paws Shutterfly site.
Thanks to all for coming out. Special thanks to all who helped.

FOGBee Jerseys

I have two Large Garneau jerseys that no longer fit me. I bought them when I started riding with the FOGBees and surprise, surprise I have lost weight. They are large size mens jerseys and are both in excellent condition. I hate to just have them hanging in the closet so if anyone is interested in them let me know. I am asking $25 a piece and can send pictures if you send me an email. Woody, I still have two ALE FOGBee jerseys and bibs to wear.

Road iD

If any of you have been thinking of buying a Road iD I have a coupon code that will give you a discount. You must use if before 3/31/18 and this discount code can be used up to 5 times. I know many of you have one of these but I believe if you ride alone at all, like I do, this is a must have item.

Pub Crawl

Nashville has 25 beer breweries.  We have put together a bike tour of 9 on the North side.  We toured them during the week when they were not yet open, just to check out they logistics.                          Here is a link to that tour.

Anybody interested in doing this tour when we can sample the products?  

There is also a rumor the the FOGBEE-East group is putting together a similar tour for Chattanooga.  Will share when we receive the details.

Fogbee bike stickers

I had a request to post the link for the stickers some of the Fogbees had made in the past. The link below is the company website with the Fogbee & TN flag on the label, just an example of what you can choose.

You can be as creative as you want in creating the look you desire. Play with different fonts, colors, etc.
