Thank You For Making 2014 a Great Year

We at the Bikers Choice would like to thank all our cycling friends from the Fogbees for making 2014 a great season. We have had a fantastic year with the Grand Tour Series of charity cycling events, the Lock 4 mountain bike events as well as Bryan's Unity Rides which had great Fogbee participation.

This winter we are working hard at improving your experience at the bike shop by shortening the time your bike  is in our service department for repairs as well as stocking items that are needed to make your rides successful. We also have now launched our new website which allows you to purchase items online and pick them up at the store at your convenience and you will still receive your Fogbee discount by using the discount code, Tom Evans in the discount box provided during your purchase. Last night we had our very first Fogbee online purchase by Terry Smith of Madison so thank you Terry.

We are looking forward to helping you achieve your cycling goals for the rest of 2014 as well as next year and hope to see you on the road soon. If there is anything we can do for you or if you ever have any questions about anything cycling related, feel free to come by the store or give us a call and we will be glad to help you out.

Fogbees' Ride to the Sky was Spectacular

Wow! What a beautiful ride! By my count 6 Fogbees rode the Calfkiller Ride to the Sky yesterday in Cookeville: Johnny D (honorary member for the day), Jeff, Ralph, Sean, Todd and yours truly. We thought it would be scenic, but it far exceeded our expectations. With law enforcement and motorcycle escort, we immediately were on sweet back roads. Fabulous views kept coming, one after another over Golden Mountain, south to Sparta, then northeast along Calfkiller River up a gradual 1000' climb to Monterey at the top of the Cumberland Plateau, then down exhilarating descents to a police escort through Algood (where it was all good) and to the finish.

Top it all off with Calfkiller beer, bbq, and live music, and this became an instant classic that we will come back to as long as they have it. Speaking of Calfkiller beer, the brewery was also the 2nd rest stop, where Jeff, Todd and I sampled their nut brown ale, before climbing the plateau. EPIC!!!

Problematic Kentucky Bicycle Laws

Since we ride frequently in Kentucky, it is advisable to be aware that Kentucky laws regarding bicyclists on highways are considerably different than those in Tennessee.  A current legal action reported by the League of American Bicyclist explains the problems. 

I have also updated our Bike Law Webpage for Kentucky (CLICK HERE


REMINDER:  We will be at Blue Grass Bar and Grille tonight for anyone who wants to try on the Long Sleeve Jerseys and Jackets and Short Sleeve Summer Jerseyt..

Return of the Night Riders, 6 PM Tuesday at Sam's

Until the temperature or weather drives us indoors to spin, some of us still like to hit the road with the lights on high. We stick to a couple simple routes on well known roads. Riding in a group with bright, well charged lights is a must. Please post if you plan to ride so we know what group(s) can be formed.

RBS 14, Great weekend

Great Weather, Great friends and good food.  Despite a more than average number of punctures and a rare front spoke break everyone got to Armour's in time to socialize before eating. Looey Law was applied early at Hartsville so I don't know how folks made it home. Below is an image taken by Marsha D of the riders who made the return ride.
Thanks to all who stepped up to make this another great Fogbee weekend.

Red Boiling Springs Day 2 Route

I found that on my Garmin it only accept the first 16 character of the routes.  Since both are named the same except at the end, the last route loaded is the only one that loads. (ie Red_Boiling_Spri )  I have renamed the Day 2 route Day 2.  If your are riding the RBS ride, using a Garmin and want both routes, you should go back and download day 1 from Bruce's post, and download this Day 2 route from this post, so you have both routes.

Day 2 Red Boiling Springs.
