Saturday - Nov 20 Cranksgiving

Attached is a flyer about the very fun and exciting Cranksgiving event happening this Saturday. From 10am-12pm, bicyclists will be riding from the Nashville Farmers' Market to area grocery stores purchasing up to $15 of nonperishable groceries to donate to Second Harvest. This is a free ride and we are promoting the event word-of-mouth style. This is going to be a lot of fun and we hope you'll join us!

Cranksgiving events are happening all over the nation, and we know that the Nashville event will be a huge success!

Night Riding?

Just wanted to gauge the interest in doing some night rides until the weather gets really too cold. I would propose Thursday nights starting about 6:30 PM to let traffic die down a bit.

I have been doing rides from my house in Goodlettsville out the neighborhood, Madison Creek, Hogans Branch, Happy Hollow and add Long Hollow Pike occasionally. It is actually quite nice once you get used to it. Need to stay off 258 after dark though.

If you are interested let me know. I would propose Thursday evenings to avoid conflict with Gary's Tuesday night spin. Rides would be about 15 to 20 to 25 miles long. Everyone would need a good headlight, a steady rear light, reflective clothing (the more the better). Pace would be slower than daytime and no downhill bomb runs. There are always some nice little uphills but you can't see them.

If we start this and someone else has some good night routes we can move it around a bit.

My daughter and future granddaughter

I just wanted to share this with my friends.

DIY Station at Bike Shop

This is pretty neat, albeit not too practical. Fix-it-yourself bike station Last month Eastside Cycles had a FREE seminar on bicycle advocacy to which they invited speakers from Mayor Dean's office, Walk/Bike Nashville, the MPO, and Bike Walk Tennessee.  Kudos to Eastside Cycles for wanting to do more bicycling community than just sell bikes.

Spin at the Y begins next Tues Nov 16 6:30 pm

Don't lose your legs for lack of riding. If you have a Y membership, come and spin with TEAM FOGBEE at the Hendersonville YMCA. Enjoy an hour with friends and occaisionally an after Y meeting at one of our favorite watering holes. Gary is our Spin Meister playing the latest in music and taking our requests. He is our MEDICINE and will ease our PAIN. We are planning a spin kickoff at 6:30pm. Post if you are coming. We will move this to the top after next weekend's ride.

Congrats Mike Poole

I am not sure if any of the Fogbees are aware of this, but we have developed one of the state's top racers. Mike Poole who has ridden with the Fogbees for the last couple of years decided to try his hand at racing this year with great results. He finished 8th overall in the state TBRA catagory 4 standings and won the Nashville Cyclist Criterium Series overall title! Next season Mike will be racing as a Cat 3 racer.

My Fellow Fogbians

Don't give up too soon on the Saturday rides bc of the weather. Today there were eight riders (lite and and a few high test) that easily did 24 and 40 miles on a beautful brisk sunny day that was very enjoyable. You worked hard most of this year so hang in there bc the Fogbees are still planning on riding this fall and winter and we want to see you out on the pavement pushing those pedals!

Gary brought over the plaque that he planned to present at the Annual Halloween party.  I am sorry to has missed it (family tradition had me spending my birthday in Montgomery).  I very much appreciate the thought and wish I had been with everyone to accept it.  Thank you.
