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 with your commitment, and headcount.  I will be in contact with all participants via the blog and email with final route and ride arrangements.


   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.

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

Veloink bike labels are here!

I received the bike labels today and will bring them to the Tailgate ride tomorrow. Actually Sherry will bring them after our ride. They all look great!

Monday, October 31, 2016

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 "" 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.

UPDATE: Unity Ride nand Pot Luck Oct 15th In Memory of Bryan Kortness

"Area cycling clubs will gather on October 15th to honor Bryan Kortness and continue his vision of bringing the cycling community together. Bryan, a local and avid cyclist, passed away in April 2015 after years of living with type 1 diabetes.

Bryan was passionate about connecting people through riding bikes and took every available opportunity to invite people on rides. Before his death, he started an annual group ride to help connect the vast network of cyclists and cycling clubs throughout the greater Nashville area.

Many of us live with or know someone who lives with type 1 diabetes. It’s JDRF’s mission to treat and cure type 1 diabetes. Donations to continue their mission in Bryan’s memory are appreciated."

Our goal is to raise $1,000 between the five clubs.  Donations can be made at the link below.

Just wanted to give everyone who ordered a FOGBEE Ale' jersey the information received from the APG factory in Italy.

We got a factory completion date of Nov. 2nd.
They are shipping directly to each person from Italy and it will take about a week.

Hopefully you'll have your jersey no later than Nov. 11th.
