Bike Helmets SAFETY RATINGS

On our recent Chattanooga ride, we had a bicyclist go head down on the pavement.  The bicyclist's choice of a good helmet was protection against serious injury.  Today, I received from Consumer Reports its safety rating for helmets which I am attaching.  SAFE helmets don't have to be costly; and, costly helmets aren't always that safe.  See the CR review rating below:

Chattanooga Turtle Ride

A four of us (Sean, Ben, a friend, and TomE) from Chattanooga will be doing a Turtle Ride on Saturday (6/16/18) that will include the Riverwalk (starting at the dam to I24 and back), the greenway near the dam, a townie tour around U of T - Chattanooga campus, and one or two brewery stops.  Total distance will be around 40 miles, plus. You all are invited to join.  We want to start around 8AM to avoid the heat and have plenty of time for the brewery stops. Please post a comment if you are interested in joining us.

3 day tour to Monticello KY July 5, 6,7.

Short notice for a short tour. Some of the Turtle contingent will be doing a short tour starting in Westmoreland and ending in Monticello, KY the weekend after July 4. Everyone is welcome to join. The only caveat is that riders must make own motel reservations and arrange a way back from Monticello. The Turtles will be sharing SAG driving and can carry luggage from overnight to overnight. Distances are about 50 miles the first two days and 30 miles the third day. Longer options can be mapped if desired. As with prior similar rides, the ride leader suggests preferred routes and motels but everyone is responsible for their own health, safety and happiness. Links to Ride With GPS routes and the overall plan are below. This is a good chance to get introduced to multi (just barely) day touring in a region you'll not likely cycle otherwise. Let me know if you are interested and I'll assist in coordination wiht luggage pickup etc.

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.
