More Progress for Tennessee Bicyclists

Hey Frank (Bowyers), Remember back in the days of the Hendersonville Greenway Committee and you bitched to me about the bicycle stuff being removed from the Driver’s License manual.  Well, I took the problem to the MPO and TDOT and kept after it.  We got a promise last year that it was going back on the manual. It’s done!  See below.

Race Day Volunteers

Most of you know that I started racing last year and the team I am now on hosts a race each year that starts the season. We could not do this with out volunteers. That's why I am posting this. We need volunteers and I know how awesome you all are so I wanted to ask if any of you would be willing to volunteer for us. We will need folks to help with registration, drive lead vehicles, set up, tear down, corner marshall, etc. The date of Hell of the South is April 2nd. If you have any desire to help, please let me know an I will give you more details.
Thanks so much!
