If you would like to volunteer, please email Charlene spinjunkie@comcast.net or text her at 615.974. 3189 with your name and address...and post here so fellow volunteers know who's joining them. As in the past, we can plan our ride routes for the day to rendezvous at the Y, have the volunteers join in for the ride and then have post-ride recovery someplace nearby. Please consider giving a few hours so the kids can have a fun and safe race.

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:

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.

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.
