Another Awesome Saturday ride

Hats off to Bruce and David for a superb 48 mile route today. What a great Fogbee and Music City Cyle rider turnout. It was one of my favorite routes so far and it was good to have Mr. Miley back on the road after a bout with the flu. I hope we do this route again this summer.

You're Never Too Old to Get on a Bike

      Whenever possible, I like to brag about someone who I think accomplished something extraordinary.  This time it’s about a family friend and “snowbird” whom we meet every couple of years in Florida.  We usually try to plan some outdoor activity such as kayaking in Ocala National Forest or skydiving at Deland airport.  This year the event was a bike ride across Florida from Deland to “the Villages” just north of Orlando.  I had originally planned a 100-mile loop for my brother-in-law and me, but decided to cut it back to 50 miles when this family friend asked to join.  You see, he is 74 years young, never rode a bike more than a couple of blocks, and rented a hybrid for the journey.  He’s the middle guy in the picture. Normally, I tell these bicyclists just to go home and not to attempt something this crazy.

Tour de Nash

Anyone planning on riding the Tour de Nash on May18th?

Who's Interested in Helping?

I got your name and contact information from William Anderson. I had asked him if he had any contacts with cycling groups in Sumner and Robertson County. Each year, the city of Millersville hosts Safety Day. This year,  it will be held at our new community center and I am looking to have more recreational content since the parks department has become the new hosts of this event. I am in hopes that your group might want to participate and set up a booth and maybe bring a bike or two. For all groups that participate, we ask that they bring some type of safety oriented display or literature while they also promote their organization or market their upcoming events. This might be a great way to do a bit of community outreach and maybe gain some new members from Millersville. Would your group have interest in participating in our event? It is Saturday, May 18 from 10 AM until 2 PM. Please advise at your earliest convenience. Thanks; I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Word of thanks..

I wanted to thank all the Fogbees (and a few non-Fogbees) who regularly turned out for the 5th straight season of Spinning at the YMCA. I was great fun, hard work and definately helped us get started for this years biking season.
Also, today was an awesome ride in Nashville with the Fogbees and the Music City Bike Club. A ton of riders on an Urban/Suburban ride. Met a new group of riders that share a common interest in biking.What a great day.

Just keepin us Old Fogbees informed

For those of you old enough to remember "Woodstock" the Concert of a Generation of young, flower-power, Coming of Age Dreamers there was a band called "Ten Years After" and a singer named Alvin Lee. Today he died but his spirit never will. If you are too young to recall what I'm talking about then just imagine seeing this in 1969. Long live the Hippies....

We would like to get a group of at least 4 to do the Bike Ride across Iowa.  Mike Knake and I are planning on it.    Ride starts July 21 to July 27 and we would return home on July 28.  We would share the ride to the beginning or end point of the ride.  It is not yet clear what the transport arrangements would be as it is a one way ride.  What we do know is if we want to go as a group only one person can apply.  Duplicate applications will void the individual and the group.  It is a lottery for spots with about 85% acceptance so the chances of getting in are good.  What we need from you sealing your commitment is the $150 ride fee that has to be submitted with the application. (Refundable if we do not get in)  The urgency is that the Pork Bellies Company that provides the transportation and handles your gear and sleeping arrangements for the ride is 70% sold out as of the end of February.  The plan is to get your commitment, get our reservation with Pork Bellies, which may involve an additional deposit, and then get the application in well before the April 1 deadline.  If you are interested in fulfilling this Bucket List ride, please plan on having your payment of $150 to me by Saturday March 9.  Post here, email, or call at 615-431-9821.
