Chilly Easy 23 Sat Ride noon

Tomorrow is to be chilly but no rain and the snow should be cleared from our roads. Some of us turtles will be doing this route from the Sam's Sports Bar lot. Refuel at one of the local places like Sam's Sports Bar or Firehouse Subs. Looks like best time is predicted 38 degrees noon.

Chilly toes easy 23.

Saturday Ride - Beech @ 10 AM

Tomorrow morning's weather, near 40 degrees with a stiff WNW wind, looks like the best weather we're going to have for the next week, with colder and wet coming in tomorrow afternoon. So here's your ride posting.

Not having ridden from Beech in quite a while, here's a modest route I hope will minimize the head winds. If at mile 12 you want to cut 5-6 miles, stay on S. Palmers Chapel to Jones to Garrison or Weeping Willow/Brinkley.

30 Miles

Recovery at Bluegrass Bar & Grill.

Bike for Sale

Got this note in our email.  Looks like a pretty good deal, so I thought I would post
Hello,
I’m selling my bike (photos attached) and thought some members of your group might be interested.  I live in White House, and bought it new from Bikers Choice.

It’s an ’06 Specialized Roubaix Comp Triple.  It has a carbon frame/fork/crank and seat post.  Ultegra derailleurs, 105 brakes, 24 hole aero rims, and is a 56 cm frame (I’m 6’0”).

It was $2,200 new.  I’m asking $695.

Thanks for your time.

Easy ride Tuesday 2/10

Finally after more than a month, a new baby, the flu, and a certain procedure keeping me off the bike I'm ready to slowly start getting into race shape. If anyone is interested in a turtle pace 15-20 mile ride from Long Hollow Baptist at 11 A.M. let me know. I can post a route if there is enough interest or we can just wing it. I will cross post on facebook.

23% Property Tax Increase

If you are a Sumner Co Fogbee homeowner you know how painful this tax increase is.  This was done without public discussion behind closed doors.  We have a chance to show our disgust for this kind of government action tomorrw night..  As many of us as possible should Bee there!!
Breaking News - Our efforts are paying off. On Monday the Legislative Committee decided to have a public hearing on the Property tax increase at the County Commission meeting on Monday January 26 at 7PM. This is a HUGE win for us. PLEASE Mark your calenders now and join us at the commission meeting. It is absolutely essential that we have a good crowd or the commission will continue to dismiss our concerns. The meeting will be on Monday January 26 at 7PM at the County Building at 355 N Belvedere Dr, Gallatin, TN 37066.

NOTICE TO TERMINATE

On Monday 1/12/15, we sent out Notices to Terminate to 29 email addresses that appear to be "dead" as determined by MailChimp tracking.  Since then, we have received 11 requests not to terminate.  That leaves 18 email addresses to be removed.

Please DOUBLE CHECK your email 
to be sure you haven't received a notice from us.  

Some notices went to people who we know are active, but likely we have old email addresses that they don't use.   
On Saturday 1/17/15 we will delete those addresses 
and remove their access to our blog.  

On Sunday 1/18/15, we will issue the January FOGBEE Newsletter to the remaining addresses.

Awesome Spin turnout....Spinning together is the Fogbee way...


GoPro FOGBEE Ride -- From Long Beach CA

To Fogbees,
. . I wanted to thank the Fogbees for a great ride in Joelton on 12/26/14. I thought I would join your club ride while I was visiting in Tennessee. It was a great ride with very friendly and experienced cyclists.
. . Usually, I ride on Pacific Coast Highway in Long Beach, California which is flat as a pancake. The Joelton route was just fantastic.
. . Please pass on my thanks to all who rode on 12/26/14. Below is a You Tube Video I made. Can someone post on your you tube page. Mush appreciated. See you next year when I am visiting relatives.

Hendersonville Star News


Picture in the Hendersonville Star News - Friday December 26, 2014.  Nice publicity for the club and, of course, we can always expect Ed to raise the bar on decorating for the ride.

Thanks to everyone who participated and contributed to Gary's Toys for Tots, Tweens, and Teens.

The Chairmen, Bob and Gary, are meeting on January 2'nd with Biker's Choice and several Fogbee leaders to analyze this year's event and decide what can be done to make it so much better next year.  If you have some ideas, comments, or suggestions, send them to Bob and Gary (or contact them to participate in the meeting.)
