Full Moon Fiasco 59

There is snow in the mountains and I wonder is it...

When: Mon, Oct 17th @ 7pm
Where: Eichardt's
Theme: Does your Boss where Pink?

Historically, our October rides always have had some pink theme in Honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Well, we are not about to change now.  It has been proven that we have more female FBC Sandpoint Members for Life then men.  Breast are important (don't take that as some "locker room" talk).  Cancer sucks.  Unfortunately, we all know someone who has been effected by cancer.

We will donate ALL spoke card monies and whatever other monies you all wanna donate that evening to Community Cancer Services here in Sandpoint.

OK, so that is the important stuff.  We also know how much you guys like to dress up.  So, our ride happens to fall on National Bosses Day.  We would encourage you to dress up like your boss.  Or just wear pink.  Or dress up like your boss and wear pink too (cleaver).  Either way, dress up, bring some dollars for cancer and let's go ride before snow flies...

Full Moon Fiasco 58 in Review

Back to School was the theme for our last ride.  Some 175+ riders collected in what was probably the last Eichardt's alley party for the year.  It was a beautiful night and ride we must.  So, we left Eich's and headed to West Sand.

Now there was some major construction at the time on Fifth and Cedar.  Our local PD thought it might be a good idea to have a couple patrol cars hold up traffic as we all rode by, so there would not be a major bottle neck between bicycles and cars trying to get through the construction area.  It worked out great and all the riders got through in minimal time, and traffic resumed as usual.  Thanks to the Sandpoint PD for that.

We meandered through West Sand, crossed down into South Sand and eventually ended at Roxy's.  That alley leading up was a dozy wasn't it??!  Thanks to Tami and the rest of the Rozy's crew for their hospitality.

As a note, we had riders from NYC, VA, Seattle, Spokane and CDA on the ride.

There was also a gal running around taking some old school Polaroid pictures...although they were on a new school camera.  Cool, regardless.

Full Moon Fiasco 58

You know what time of year it is...

When: Thur, Sept 15th @ 7pm (note new winter ride time)
Where: Eichardt's
Theme: Back to School

Kids are going back to school.  Some kids are just starting school for the first time.  These young kids will be molded during these formative years in school.  We will celebrate the good...or bad...memories we all have of school as we dress up for our next Full Moon ride.

Mess around and you will get a spanking.

Full Moon Fiasco 57 in Review

Last ride was more of the same for summer.  300+ riders.  We rode.  We enjoyed the moon.  We left Eich's and went back to Eich's.  That confused some people.  Looking forward to next month and some FBC normalcy.

Full Moon Fiasco 57

It's been 4 years...

When: Thur, Aug 18th @ 8pm
Where: Eichardt's
Theme: Summer Olympics

4 years ago we had out first ever FBC Sandpoint Summer Olympics.  It was a blast and some memories are still fresh in my mind.  So then, it is that time of year again.  And so ride and compete again we will.

There is still time to train.  Then, dress in your favorite Summer Olympic event garb, grab your bike and your bestie and let's ride!

Full Moon Fiasco 56 in Review

Our last ride featured over 300 riders...or 5% of Sandpoint.  Yup, you read that right 5% of the City of Sandpoint was in attendance (thanks to FBC Lifetime Member for Life Kevin for crunching the numbers on that).  FBC rides continue to the BIGGEST biking event to ever hit little ‘ol Sandpoint.

"Nerds" was the theme and you all did not disappoint.  Many, many people dressed up.  Others, it was unclear whether they dressed up or if that was their everyday attire.  Either way, it was a damn nerdy looking group of riders.

We headed into West Sand, where some did some laps around the roundabout which is always fun.  With a somewhat large group, we kept the route rather direct.  A long run was made down Division, utilizing the designated bike lane...and traffic lane.  It was a beautiful night for a ride with friends.

We ended at the Eagles.  Now we have been there before.  The gals there love, and I mean love, to have FBC there.  They work their asses off making sure everyone is served and has a fine night.  They never disappoint.  And you should know that moneys made there go to supporting the Eagles.  Hence, that is why the bar is called the Eagles.  Anyways, there really is no better place to end an FBC.  Trike-a-boom made the ride (barely) and provided tunes at the Eagles.

A last note on the ride, this seemed to be more of a family event than usual. There were a lot of moms and daughters.  Dads and sons.  Moms and sons.  Dads and daughters.  And just general family combinations out for the ride.  That is always nice to see that FBC can bring families closer together.  Until next time...

Full Moon Fiasco 56

Remember way back to last July?  We had 2 Full Moons in one month.

When: Tue, July 19th @ 8pm
Where: Eichardt's
Theme: Nerds

Our next ride happens to fall on International Chess Day.  How exciting is that?!  What's that?  You don't understand how that relates to FBC?  How are you supposed to dress like a chess figure?  You aren't silly.  No offense intended to those that actually play/like chess...
