BikeGuard: Stolen Bike Recovery

Hello all!

Did you know that our officer friends with the Hendersonville Police Department establish a work relationship with BikeGuard, a FREE online Bike Registry, that allows cyclists to record their bicycles as stolen in a national database in the unfortunate case of a theft?

I know that all of us love our bikes very much and we ALWAYS take care to lock our bikes up properly when we leave them unattended with our vehicles, but in the unlikely but possible occurrence that one of our beloved bikes is swiped from us, this is a good back up plan to increase the chances of our bikes being recovered and returned to us.

How it works:  You simply go to www.myassettag.com/bike, register with the site, enter the details about your bike, and click REGISTER.  Once you've done this, you can go to the tab on the top right hand corner that says "My Account", click on it, scroll down, and click "Request Free Bike Tags".  From there you can request bike tags that will be mailed to you in 8 to 10 business days completely free.  The 'tag' is actually a sticker/decal that you can stick on your bike somewhere discreet like under the down tube or underneath your saddle. They will send you THREE of these tags for each of your bikes, and a simple scan of this tag will direct police (or a nice individual who unknowingly bought your stolen bike) to your BikeGuard account.   I just registered my bike and it was super quick and easy.

Your bike will be given its own page that you can choose to either make public or private, kind of like a facebook page.  From here you can:
  • Get a proof of registration print out
  • Mark your bike as stolen
  • Change your bike's owner
  • Edit your bike's info
  • Remove your bike's page
If you are extremely diligent when it comes to looking after your bike and you really REALLY hope you never need to use a recovery registry like this one, but you still want more information to consider signing up, I have shared some links below!  If you can't click on them, just copy and paste them in your browser.

Sunday 3/19 Recovery Ride 11:00AM

Nice turn out today in White House! sorry if you missed it. A little windy but I think everyone had a good and safe ride. Thanks for the route and posting Miley.

Recovery Ride Sunday from East Robertson Elementary School, 5177 E Robertson Road, Cross Plains, TN (park in the back) wheels down at 11:00AM. I also believe Tony has a longer route (50 - 55 miles) planned for the same time and location, perhaps he will post and give an update and route.

So if you have never rode in upper Robertson Co and Southern KY its a treat, small rolling hills, (not even hills), low traffic, good roads and beautiful farm land, come up and join us.

Not a good option for a store so bring plenty of fuel with you.

Sunday 30 mile Recovery Ride

See you there.

Friendly bike computer reminder

For those of you that may have gotten new bikes over this bitter cold winter....or maybe new wheels or tires.  Your bike computer is most likely not calibrated with the correct tire size anymore.  Don't let your miles or average speed suffer.  Update your wheel size circumference before it gets warm and sweaty outside.
From Garmin's user manual:
700c x 23c   2096
700c x 25c   2105
700c x 28c   2136

If you need another size reference here: http://static.garmin.com/pumac/Edge_800_OM_EN.pdf

Cycling shoe recommendations

Looking for suggestions on new cycling shoes, please.  Unfortunately Ira and I skidded out on a corner coming home from White House yesterday...both of us are generally OK (road rash and stiff!), but the new Assos shorts from Santa and my shoes are both toast.  What shoes are best for year round riding (cool in the summer and potentially insert for the winter), comfortable, etc.  

Thanks and appreciate any tips

Cycleops fluid Trainer for sale


I'm posting this for my Father-in-law.  This is a very slightly used Cycleops Fluid trainer.  I think he used it once or twice.  It's just the trainer, no skewer or front block.  If you or someone you know is looking to get some miles in during the cold winter months contact me.  He's looking for around $150.

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

   THE RIDE WILL START EXACTLY AT 5:30.  SO DON'T BE LATE.  HAVE WHEELS READY TO ROLL BY 5:15. 


   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. 

   For website information go to: FOGBEES CHRISTMAS LIGHTS RIDE

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

I have a trainer that is no longer needed...  Would rather give to a FOGBEE than sell.  If anyone wants it, please let me know and it is yours.
