Christmas and Year Round Charity

As you know, the FOGBEES help sponsor the Pedals for Paws ride that supports Sumner Spay Neuter Alliance, who have done so much to save pet lives and provide low cost pet services.

Many of us shop on Amazon, and if you haven't done this, Please consider setting up Sumner Spay Neuter Alliance as your charity on Amazon. To do this, you must sign into Amazon at https://smile.amazon.com Then choose Sumner Spay Neuter Alliance as your charity. This costs you NOTHING as they only benefit when you buy something, and what you buy costs no more.

Every time you shop sign in at smile.amazon.com and a small amount will be donated from each purchase. Even if you don't want to support this charity, sign up one of your favorites. It costs you nothing, and supports a good cause.

For more information about Sumner Spay Neuter go to http://sumnerspayneuteralliance.org

Thank you Fogbees

Wilma and I very much appreciate the flowers and support of the Fogbees after the death of our daughter Amy Jo. Cycling has brought me many benefits. None greater than becoming associated with the finest group of people on earth.  You are truly a blessing.

Lake Champlain Loop

In June 2019 we did an eight-day bike ride looping Lake Champlain with a stop in Montreal and visit with the Montreal Bike Club.  The adventure was shared with three articles published in the Indian Lake Peninsula Living magazine.  Here are those three articles: (Aug) New York, (Sep) Quebec, and (Oct) Vermont.

For November's article we will be highlighting the State Line Riders with article contributions from Tony Hernandez, Brian Beisel, and Phil Vickery

Tuesday October 15

Late notice, but I'll be rolling out from my house at 3:45-4p today if anyone wants to join, should be plenty of time to get in 25 miles. Most everyone knows already, but 140 Upper Station, plenty of yard or driveway parking.

Tuesday Evening Rides

As the days continue to get shorter and starting at 5:00PM we basically only have about and hour and ten minutes to get a ride in before sunset. Wanting to keep everyone safe and trying to ensure the "juice is worth the squeeze" I will not be positing anymore Tuesday afternoon rides this season.
Feel free to post rides if you can ride earlier or let me know and I can post for you. Hopefully we will have good weather on Saturday's and Sunday's for several more weeks and months.

Thanks All!

Beat the Heat

With little relieve from the 90 plus degrees and humidity, hydration is more important than ever.  Tom Benim found a great DIY article relative to sweat, cramps, and electrolyte supplements.

We have added it to the FOGBEE website for future reference.  Look under Body Safety.

We're Pedaling to Canada

Well, we already did that.  Bruce detailed the trip in his Crazy Guy on a Bike Journal.  Here is the first part of a three part magazine story about our excursion.  Yes, we are already planning our next BIG week-long bikecations. Where to? Mickelson Trail in South Dakota, Chicago or loop around Lake Michigan, Nova Scotia, or who knows where. They are always great biking adventures not to be missed.

Bruce's Epilogue

Now being the most senior FOGBEE living in Tennessee, I learned in the Lake Champlain tour never to under-estimate the power of youth.  Some of the senior cyclists have even  chosen to reward it with trophies as Bruce notes in his Epilogue just added his Crazy Guy on a Bike journal


These journals are a nice FOGBEE tradition (hint) along with the photos on FOGBEE Shutterfly (see the FOGBEE websites).

Shoe Advice

After a couple years of putting up with numb pinky toes and hot feet, my Sidi's have decided themselves retire (broken buckle...I may have to duct tape the shoe on tomorrow).  I didn't have the same foot issues in my old shoes, so am going to try switching brands.  After some research, have been thinking about the Fizik Infinito or the Specialized S7 (go big or go home...sick of numb toes).  If anyone has tried either shoe (or another model of these brands) and has some advice to share, I would really appreciate it!  Biker's Choice would only order them in to try if I made a 20% down payment, so looks like online will be a better option.
