Fogbees ride with the Blind Bikers Across America

Just look what cycling can get you into. Four Fogbees just completed a two day ride down the Natchez Trace Parkway from just south of the Highway 96 bridge to Colbert's Ferry in Alabama.  David Buckman, Andrew Getter, and Bruce Day rode as captains paired with  blind stokers.  David Irvine provided much needed bike maintenance along the way.  The trip concluded with activities in and about the Helen Keller museum.  Even with sore everythings it was smiles all around when we crossed the Tennessee river. Once again the ride was among my most uplifting experiences ever.  My few pictures are at Shutterfly here.
More images to come once all images are shared with me.
Update July 8. David Buckman's images can be seen at

My hat ( or helmet ) is off to you guys. I especially liked the pic of the lady with her hands emersed in the waterfall.

Dave Buckman dropped me and my baggage off at my house at noon today then headed to his home. Bruce said it all, this was an education and inspiring event for me and daily demonstrations of the triumph of the human spirit over adversity (and recalcitrant bicycles). Helen Keller and her teach Anne Sullivan would be proud. DB filled up 3 SD chips with photos which he hopes to post soon. DTI
