We're Back from Up North

It is really hard not to love those 75-degree temperatures in Quebec for biking.  It was a great trip. Bruce detailed it in his Crazy Guy on a Bike journal (click here).  Yes, we took LOTS of pictures. For those interested, click here.  Lastly, the trip will be published in three parts in my monthly magazine column starting in August.

Rick's Cigars and BBQ Ride, Saturday, 6/29

Update:  Bring chairs just in case. 

This Saturday, we are going to ride from White House City Park and then grill out at Rick's Cigars in White house following the ride.  Significant others are very welcome to join us after the ride. 

Please post if you plan on coming so we know how much meat to bring.  Bring a side and your favorite after ride drink. I am sure Rick will have your favorite cigar in stock.    Post what you will bring as a side.  Tracie and Mike Short are bringing pasta salad.   Sherry and I will bring the baked beans.  We will have brats and burgers.

Dave Miley will be planning the routes for us.  So watch for a post later in the week as to the route.

See you on the road,

Thank You

Thank you to everyone for your love and support during this past week. I appreciate every word, encouragement, cards, food, visit, acts of kindness, calls, thoughts and every prayer. I remember another time in my life that I did not have my Fogbee family and friends; but this time was much different, I felt your love, support and prayers. I know you had my back and you were pulling me the entire time, and were not about to drop me.
Please continue to keep me, my family and Dylan's sons in your prayers.
Love you all, and may God Bless You my friends!
