Area T-shirt and Charity Rides

Some general commentary on area t-shirt and charity rides. Maybe I'll expand this content soon. 2 County Metric (100km) - sponsored by the Murfreesboro Bike Club, this April group ride is very intermediate. As I remember, there are only two climbs. But, early in the season, the rolling hills will get you. You get a t-shirt with this ride. Watertown Historical Ride (100km) - I rode this in 2004, at the first annual. I missed the 3-state 3-mountain, as this is the same weekend. It starts and ends in Keep reading [...]

More Multi-day Supported – what to bring

OK, I think I have tables working right. You'll find a pretty good list of things to bring here. Read more to see my opinions! I thought I'd put together some thoughts on multi-day rides, starting with gear.CAMPING GEAR:  Some things you should take.  This is probably a good list for any SAG'ed multi-day ride.  This doesn't include any provisions for food. TENT I used my Hennessy Hammock the whole trip.  We luckily had trees at all the campgrounds.  Many Keep reading [...]

Multi-day Supported Touring Advice

If you're thinking about doing a multi-day supported bike tour (like the BRAT), you should find some good advice here. Once I get "tables" working right in GeekLog, I'll come back and add more. Take a look. FROM CHARLENE A. (hasn't ridden it yet, but planning some similar rides)I have purchased a self-inflating sleeping mat (I slept in my Hennessy Hammock this trip, but this is important) from REI. You are welcome to borrow it if you don’t have one. I’ve been told that a camp Keep reading [...]

HWEN Area to East Nashville

Originally on v1 of patclements.com. It explains how to start in Hillsboro West End neighborhood, and cross through downtown Nashville, to create a pretty long ride. HWEN Area to East Nashville - start at the old Wild Oats on Belmont, where it crosses over I440. Follow Belmont towards downtown, 4 way stop turn right. Go to light, turn right. Cross Wedgewood, follow bike lanes down to Musica (the naked statue). Make your way through downtown to cross the Gateway Bridge to East Nashville. Continue Keep reading [...]

Hey, if anyone wants to submit a ride story, let me know and I’ll add you a user ID. I’m gonna convert stories from the old Patclements.com, but it’s gonna take some time.

Making Progress this Weekend!

I've been playing with colors and layouts, but that's gonna take a lot of work to figure out how all the customization works. It aint that easy, and the GeekLog themes seem to be particular about the version of GL you use. And, I'm color challenged, so every customization I've done looked really ugly. Make sure you check out the Calendar and the MediaGallery, accessible across the very top of the page. I hope to customize those links into menus below the starting graphic. I can see a major Keep reading [...]

Witness the Evolution!

Welcome to my new website engine, GeekLog! I hope this will let me keep content fresh, by making it easier to publish content. This is a content management system (blog-like), with calendars, galleries, and is somewhat customizable with plug-in's, etc. You'll soon see a new logo and some of the old content republished back into the new format. Maybe I'll set up some friends and family with accounts, so they can post pictures, "Pat Stories" (only nice ones) or who knows what else. Keep reading [...]
