Newspaper Article for UNITY Ride

Here is a copy of the article that you requested for the UNITY Ride that appeared today (9/30/16) in the Hendersonville Standard newspaper.

Kudos to Grand Fondo

This week I took my Focus in to get some maintenance done.  They discovered a crack in my frame and are working to get it replaced for me .  That is not what the Kudos is for.

He knew I was riding Jack and Back.  I was concerned about riding my Orbea.  He told me to bring it in.  He refitted me on the bike and set it up like my Focus.  Replaced my tape, transferedmy seat, checked everything out.  Best part is that he didn't charge me a thing to make it right because of the Focus.

On top of that, a number of you know we have been trying to help out a new young rider named Leo. I got to talking to Lynn about Leo and he is helping us w a great deal in a new bike for him.  Tomorrow Leo is getting fitted and will be picking up his new bike.

Thanks Lynn for all that you have done.

Fogbee hats

Good news - I have most of the hats. There are 3 black distressed hats that are back ordered but I didn't want to wait any longer to get these into your hands (or on your heads). When the back ordered hats are ready I will be contacted. These hats were not easy from the embroidery perspective so I need one more dollar per hat to cover the cost. Sorry, I used an estimate that didn't quite do it. I will bring the hats with me to the next few events for distribution. If you want to make other arrangements you can get in touch with me at 270-978-1610. Thanks for your patience.

Red Boiling Springs images on Shutterfly

My images of the 2016 Red Boiling Springs ride are now on Shutterfly.
If you have trouble, try clicking on the "Website" tab at the top of the Fogbee Blog page, then scroll down to Photos, Shutterfly.

Most notable are all the smiles and outright laughter visible on the faces. This despite the rain.

Thanks to Woody for organizing the ride and to Mike for adding the new wrinkle of a 3 day option.  Many thinks to Marsha Depew and Sherry Baisel for luggage transport. I don't know who brought all the goodies but it was fantastic. Don't stop.

Most of all, congratulate yourselves for participating. You make the party.

FOGBEE ALE Jerseys - Last Call

We have met the minimum order requirement for custom Jersey orders from APG/ALE.

Our FOGBEE Jerseys order will be placed with the factory Monday.

Today, and possibly first thing tomorrow morning, will be your last chance to order a Pro Level FOGBEE ALE Jersey for the foreseeable future.

Continue the Tradition

      Much of the history of the FOGBEES is recorded in the photos and videos that members take while on tours and rides.  We have tried to collect them after each excursion on the FOGBEE photo website  and  our YouTube website  .  For more information please see
      It is always enjoyable to look back on the old trips and these sites provide an easy way to share your memories. Many of the veteran FOGBEES who in the past created these archives are not available to continue this great tradition. The club has very skilled fresh photographers.  Please share your creations.  Need help in signing up, send me a note at

Red Boiling Springs Last Update

Just one day before we leave for Red Boiling Springs with the three day riders heading out Friday morning and the two day riders roll out on Saturday.
Just a couple of reminders and updates:

Wednesday, September 14, 2016


The official tally from ALE is at 17 jerseys ordered.

RBS Luggage and Coolers Transportation

We are trying to get a feel for Saturday riders that need luggage transport. Post here or call me at 615-431-9821. MARSHA will be at Bluegrass Saturday 7:45 to 8:20.  Also for Sunday return luggage will be dropped at Woodys garage or at my house, your option.

Tuesday, September 13, 2016

Just a reminder that Gran Fondo Gallatin is this Saturday. Pre-Registration will close on Friday night. 

While I was marking the  courses today, I came across a 6 mile bicycle sleigh ride of fresh pavement down the ridge from Westmoreland to Bethpage on old 231E.  It didnt seem to have any traffic on it either.  To anyone participating in the 100K, this will be a treat!  Also, anyone who doesnt want to do the last climb up Rock Bridge, there is a great by-pass at the last rest stop to make the route a little easier and shorter.

ALE Fogbee Jersey

Dear FOGBEE members,

The HERNANDEZ BOYS (Frank and Tony) would like to inquire as to whether any of you would be interested in a Pro Level FOGBEE jersey made by one of the premier cycling clothing manufacturers in the world ALE/APG.

Mike Knake is fully aware that we’re pursuing this and has given us his blessing. Thank you so much Mike and we really appreciate it!!!!!!

APG in Italy makes cycling clothing for many Tour de France teams and many other big names like Giordana and Vermac. They’re own brand is ALE of which I know many of you have seen me and Frank wear.
