Saturday Ride - Sun and frozen toes from SCHS at 9am

Last weekend we lucked out with Saturday being the warmest day of the week...now it looks like our fate has been reversed.  Good news is the roads should be dry and there should be a bit of sun in the sky so a ride is still on the table.


Bundle up and come breathe some crisp February air,

Lindsay

Saturday Ride: SCHS 9:00 am (long route) and 9:30 am (shorter route) UPDATE: Shorter Route and recovery location added

Sometimes we are luckier than others...and it looks like the temperatures are recovering for us to have a good morning on the roads Saturday.  Thanks to Mike for the 35 mile route option...and he is still taking you guys up Hwy 109, so we will all get a change to get some pre-season climbing in...I like it.  The 55 milers will start at 9am and the 35 milers will start at 9:30am.  This should allow us to finish around the same time and head to lunch as a group.


Recovery at Sam's.  Look forward to seeing the cold moderate weather crew on Saturday,

Lindsay

**Routes updated** New Year, New Roads? Germantown, Nashville Saturday 1/5 9AM

Tired of near misses by suburbanites in a rush, potholes, and otherwise congested roads? Come explore the beautiful, scenic, mysteriously undisturbed, scenic routes in NW Nashville on the smooth tourism-funded roads. We'll start in Germantown at Morgan Recreation Center (the park in front of the Flats at Taylor Place, 1515 5th Ave N) at 9:00 AM. Depending on how many people post, we may move the start to the Cumberland Greenway Trailhead near Metro Medical Supply in Metrocenter as there is more parking there. Please post your intentions or text me so we can plan.

Recovery at any of the numerous restaurants within walking distance of the starting point, though I might suggest margaritas at Taco Cantina or a nice German beer at Von Elrod's. Just an FYI, without that rush hour traffic, Germantown is as close or closer to most of you Hendersonville residents than normal starting locations in White House or Gallatin.

48 miles - Store at 28

Fill the Fire Truck then Stuff the Cruiser

Hello Fogbee's,

A Fill the Fire Truck then Stuff the Cruiser event, held by a fellow Fogbee, will take place at Walmart this Saturday from 10-4. The kids at Vanderbilt Childrens Hospital need our help. Unfortunately these kids will be in the hospital and won't be able to celebrate Christmas at home. The Santa Shop will take the pressure off the parents to go buy gifts and allow them to spend more time with their families.

Hope to see you there!!!

Please see the link for the June 2019 bike tour around Lake Champlain (to the right on this blog page), then spending a couple days in Montreal with a side trip of 2 days by train to old Qu├ębec.

Turtle option for Red Boiling Springs

Woody's excellent routes are a maybe too long, steep, and for sure too fast for me.  I plan to start riding from Hartsville about 2 pm Friday with the route below.  I don't plan to ride Saturday but do plan to return Sunday via Drury Ridge. Colors look to be spectacular this year. As of now I will be solo but any other like mind and body riders are welcome to join.

Where in the World is Bugtussle

You all may remember these guys.  They don't ride much with the FOGBEES any more.  Can't keep up with all the youngins.  But they still ride quite a bit.  They ride and write about their excursions mostly on Crazy Guys on a Bike (links are on FOGBEE blog), but also in the local magazines.  Here is one of their most recent trips.
