Shan Boone "Doc Brew"

With a heavy heart I want to inform you that we have lost another FOGBEE. "Doc Brew" or "Doc" as we called him lost his battle with cancer last night and passed, he was 51 just a few days from his 52nd birthday.. 

His wife Keri told me they "will be making plans in the coming days and want to make sure all Shan's biking friends are included. He loved you all. I will keep you posted"                                             

Arrangements will be communicated and posted once finalized.

Bruce Update (revised from 12/22/23)

1/22/24: Today mid afternoon, Bruce finally got home.  He felt much more comfortable in his own bed. He still requests that we refrain from calling, emailing or texting until he regains more strength. He just gets too tired.

He said that he will reach out to us as he begins to feel well and strong enough.

1/17/24: Bruce has had a tough time but he said he is feeling quite good.  Late this afternoon he finally got moved from the ICU to a step down floor.  Still no word on when he may get discharged.  He still tires very quickly. His spirit remains very positive.

"Bruce is out of surgery. Heart good. Only two bypasses. Said good bypass material." Wilma - 01/05/24: 1 PM

12/22/23: Bruce and Wilma very much appreciate everyone's concern and best wishes.  Please wait no calls or visits until Bruce is home in a week.

Red Boiling Springs 2023

RBS 2023 IS IN THE BOOKS! If you missed it there is always next year. We started out on Friday Oct 20th with 13 riders but unfortunately a broken spoke sent "purple bike Mike G." home early; too bad "MacGyver Bruce" or "MacGyver" Ed wasn't along. Weather was perfect, food was good, fire pit was good, routes were good, but most of all the company and fellowship with great friends was amazing and always the weekend highlight! Without participation this 3 day ride is not possible, thanks to all that attended and helped with the planning. Special thanks to Traci and Mike Short for providing the vehicle and hauling bags and coolers to RBS and back! Everything else can be a mess and tolerable but without our bags and coolers its a "crap show." Thank you Traci and Mike!

Between all riders appox 2,000+ miles and 81,000+ feet of elevation was ridden (not sure how many miles Tony rode around the rest stop store on Sunday :). 
Dates are tentative for 2024,  October 18th, 19th and 20th.
