UPDATED Solar Eclipse Ride, August 21st

Solar Eclipse Ride Plans:

We will have a 30 mile and 40 mile routes.   The ride will start at 9:00.  I suggest getting there before 8:30 so you can beat the traffic and we can get out on the road on time.  Probably be a good idea to leave home early as well and look for alternate routes to the Camplin Compound. The plan is to be back about an Hour and a half prior to the Eclipse so we can have plenty of time to watch the moon and sun move across the sky to their final convergence. The total eclipse is at 1:30.

Routes.  BRING PLENTY OF WATER. NO REST STOPS ON THE ROUTES TO AVOID TRAFFIC.  At the end of Brandy Hollow you will turn right on 76 for a very short distance before turning right on Dorris.  

38 MILE ROUTE

28 MILE ROUTE

Swimming.  If you want, bring a suit and take a dip in Sherry's brother Kirk's pool next door. 

We will have BBQ. Bring a side and a lounge chair.  Cost of BBQ and beer will be less than $10 a head. Cost of just BBQ less than $5.  Beer alone - $15.

We will have beer. Bill Barton is bringing one of his trailers w a TV and keg tap.  We will be able to watch any coverage of the Eclipse on the TV.  We have a keg of Thunder Ann on order thanks to Todd Jarrell and Eddie at Saunders Ferry Pizza.

We will have solar glasses. We have 70 pairs of solar glasses to watch the Eclipse.

Please post if you plan on attending and how many family members you plan on bringing so we know how much BBQ to order.  Also post what side you are bringing so others can plan.

Family is invited to attend as well.

The ride will start and end at my mother in laws house, the Camplin Compound, where we had the tailgate party last year.
923 Tyree Springs are in White House TN.

Saturday Ride, Springfield at 8AM

The consensus three months ago after riding these routes from Garner Street Park in Springfield through Adams and Kentucky was that we must do it again. Well, we only have a few open dates in the next three months, so let's make it this Saturday.

38 miles, store at 30
46 miles, store at 33
59 miles, store at 40

Recovering at The Depot is another plus to riding from Springfield.

Want to feel like an extra fit Fogbee?

Special opportunity for one Fogbee to feel especially fit leading in to the fall riding season...and hey you can even convince your significant-other your ride-to-beer-intake ratio has been extra-favorable this year!

One of the vests we ordered is labelled as a S, but was cut as a M...so anyone interested in a size M vest can get one labeled as a S.  It's perfectly new so please let Mike and I know if you are interested,
