It Takes a Team

. . Participating in the HOT 100 yesterday reminded me how critical the support of a bike club is in the achievement of a great event.  So many clubs in our area have this down to a science.  I spent yesterday afternoon picking Sarah Lovett's brain on how the Murfreesboro Bike Club does the HOT 100.  She has a fat manual she has put together over the years and has taught "Organizing an Event" at MTSU.  She has volunteered to share much of her work.
. . Many FOGBEES have wanted to have OUR event and the opportunity has presented itself by means of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.  Several FOGBEES have already taken leadership positions, but it is going to TAKE A TEAM effort for this to be successful.  I shared with Sarah what has been accomplished to date and she confirmed that we are on track, but please consider getting involved with your club's event.
. . What we need now is MARKETING.  Few people know about this inaugural event. Even if you are unable to ride in our first Cycle for Life (for whatever reason) - - TALK IT UP.  We hung posters and passed out brochures and flyers at the HOT 100.  CLICK HERE to print a flyer to share with friends, family, business associates, etc.
. . Join me in being proud of the FOGBEES that recognize the importance of sharing personal time and treasure in our community and making your club successful.

On Saturday after 66 miles of torture on the Hot 100 I handed out about 150 Cf pamphlets. I put them on windshields of cars and gave them to riders. I even met a nice guy who's wife has CF and promised to ride in October. It was enjoyable. I hope all our members will participate in this ride. It's a great cause and your family and friends can ride or volunteer to help. let's make this ride a Fogbees success.
