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.

FOGBEE Tailgate . Thanks Mike, Sherry, Bill and Janice!

Another great tailgate and turnout with the FOGBEES. Special thanks to Janice Camplin for the use of her home (and the warm showers after a chilly wet ride). Bill Barton for the fantastic "TailgateNashville" trailer, Mike Knake for the route, getting all the burgers, brats and grilling, and Sherry Knake for ensuring everything went smooth and making sure Mike didn't forget anything. Fun Fun Day! If you missed it we hope you can make the next one.

UPDATE RESCHEDULED Tailgate Ride and Party-Nov 4th UPDATE-Routes Posted

LONG ROUTE MODIFIED

At this point, the ride is still on for this weekend.  The ride will start at 8:30AM.  Very little rain is expected and it will be fairly warm with mild winds.

It will take place at my mother-in-law Janice's house again this year.  Her address is 923 Tyree Springs Road in White House, TN.

Bill has a new trailer that he is going to bring up that has a deck and couches.  We will also have some tents just in case there is an afternoon shower. 

We will ride from Janice's house.  Everyone can park in the field next to her house. 

Game plan is pretty much the same as last year.  We will grill burgers and brats.  Bring a side and your favorite drink AND CHAIRS.   May also want to bring a blanket. 

PLEASE POST IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON RIDING AND STAYING FOR THE PARTY so we know how many burgers and brats to get.  If you have already posted and will not be able to make it because of the change, please post.

See you on the road,

Mike and Sherry Knake and Janice Camplin

The Amazing Way Bicycles Change You

Been to Amsterdam and heard the story of how mothers changed the culture for bicycles. Hendersonville residents crab about traffic.  I know how they can fix the problem. Takes more than talk or synchronizing traffic lights.

New pizza place opening in White House

I saw the item below on FB and since the Fogbees visit the one in Gallatin often I thought this might be of interest to us. Having another choice in White House can't be a bad thing. Opens this winter but perhaps a good gathering place for Saturday rides when weather allows.

Hey White House! Just wanted to let everyone know that myself and Spencer, owners of Prince Street Pizza and Pub are moving forward with our location in White House at 2404 Hwy 31W!! We have been back and forth with the name of the place. To stick with the street theme I thought "31 W Pizza and Pub" but we thought that made it sound kinda more like a bar, so as of now it is "White House Pizza and Pub". It will be the same logo just imagine Prince Street being replaces and the street signs changing. Lets hear your thoughts!

P.S.  As of now we are shooting for a December opening. If you know someone interested in a job please tell them to come fill out an application at Prince Street Pizza in Gallatin.

Memphis

      In 2008, Bicycling magazine called out Memphis Tennessee as one of the three worst cities in which to bicycle.  It repeated that report in its April 30, 2010, issue saying, 
No bike lanes exist within the city limits of Memphis. And the city government, comprised of layers of bureaucracy, has repeatedly ignored or rejected requests from bike clubs, shops and other organizations to create facilities.”  
      However, in June 2017 the FOGBEE Bicycle Club chose Memphis as the destination for it weekend touring excursion.  So what changed?  In a single word – A LOT  Here is the article and your PICs.

UPDATED Solar Eclipse Ride, August 21st

Solar Eclipse Ride Plans:

We will have a 30 mile and 40 mile routes.   The ride will start at 9:00.  I suggest getting there before 8:30 so you can beat the traffic and we can get out on the road on time.  Probably be a good idea to leave home early as well and look for alternate routes to the Camplin Compound. The plan is to be back about an Hour and a half prior to the Eclipse so we can have plenty of time to watch the moon and sun move across the sky to their final convergence. The total eclipse is at 1:30.
