First Charity Event of the Cycling Season is this Sunday

While the Fogbees have been primarily a road bike riding club, I know that there are a few members who venture off roads on their bike riding adventures so I would like to invite the club out for the very first event of 2014 this Sunday. We will be venturing out to Hickman County this Sunday for a gravel extravaganza called Gravel Love Potion #40. This event benefits SORBA(Southern Off Road Bicycle Association) in the purchase of a new trail cutting machine for Middle Tennessee. If you are a mountain biker, this event directly affects you as this machine will be used to expand trails like Lock 4 in Gallatin as well as cut new trails in our area. This ride will feature routes of 26 miles as well as 40 miles with over 85% of the ride on gravel and dirt roads. It will have some tough climbs and a couple of very small water crossings. Registration can be done day of event or online and with your registration you will get beer supplied by Oskar Blues and a hot meal at the end of the ride, a commemorative t-shirt while supplies last, along with the opportunity to win a Salsa El Mariachi 29er mountain bike frame donated by the Bikers Choice.

We currently have 100 riders registered and expect between 125 and 150 riders showing up. If you are interested but would like more information, check out the official event website or feel free to give me a call at the Bikers Choice any day this week at (615)822-2512.
