Much thanks

To the FOGBees...I retired in Jan 2015 and one of my retirement goals was to get back into biking. I picked White House because I felt it was a great small town that would provide a lot of biking opportunities. Thanks to the generosity of the members of this group I am farther along than I could have imagined after riding for only 7 months. One particular member I owe a great deal is Jerry Dunaway. He let me use one of his bikes (for months) after moving into White House and as they say "I was hooked". He didn't know me at that time but that didn't stop him from being a great neighbor. Thanks to all the FOGBees for helping me get into a sport I hope to do for a long time. Merry Christmas to the FOGBees and their families.

Been There, but never done that!

Christmas Lights Charity Big Success

Thanks to all of you who rode in the Christmas Lights Ride and to all who donated toys for our Santa Cop Charity.  The HPD was thrilled with the donations. This will go a long way to give some kids in Hendersonville who are less fortunate a good Christmas.  There were over 60 toys for kids of all ages. Here is a picture of the delivery of toys from the FOGBEES.
Thanks for your generosity!

Christmas Lights Ride Dec 12th 2015

C H R I S T M A S  L I G H T S  R I D E
DEC 12, 2015
Tentative Start Time 5:30pm

This ride is now part of the Hendersonville Holiday Fest, so it is an honor for our cycling club.
    If you are not familiar with this ride, it is an opportunity to decorate and light up your bicycle with Holiday lights and ride some of the streets of Hendersonville spreading some holiday cheer.  Everyone who sees us seems amazed at the spectacle!!  This ride is really a bicycle parade.  We have arranged a police escort and the tentative route is less than 10 miles which opens it up for a family activity.  
    Now is a good time to plan your bike d├ęcor and if needed purchase any battery powered lighting that you may need.  In the past we have found lighting at Wal-Mart, Walgreens and some at Lowes and Home Depot.  
    I am meeting with the Hendersonville police department after Thanksgiving to finalize the route.  They would like to have a participant count, so I am requesting that you post here, or email me at Bikenwalk@gmail.com  with your commitment, and headcount.  I will be in contact with all participants via the blog and email with final route and ride arrangements.
   Our Charity this year is Hendersonville Police Department SANTA COP.  Please consider purchasing an unwrapped Toy or Toys for a child 0 to 12 years old.  Deliver your toy to Gary Williams office at 145 Maple Row Blvd. on or Before December 14. 
   For website information go to: FOGBEES CHRISTMAS LIGHTS RIDE

If you have any questions or comments, please contact me at the email above.
