Full Moon Fiasco 103

Weird times continue...

When: Fri, May 8th
Where: All of Sandpoint
Theme: Mother's Day with No Socks

Obviously with our current state of affairs we are unable to gather for a ride. Eichardt's isn't even open for us to gather and have a beer. But they will be soon! And you can still hit them up for take out.

Our challenging times continue as the governor has mandated no gathering of 10 or more people for right now. Soon, gathering sizes will increase and we can all get back together...at a proper distance.

Our May ride is just a few days before Mother's Day. Similar to last month, we asking that you grab your mom, family or a couple friends, your bikes, maintain 6' and head out for a little cruise at some time on May 8th. Know that when you do, fellow FBCers will be doing the same and thinking of you.

Please TAKE PICTURES and share them to the FBC Sandpoint Facebook and/or Instagram page...yes, we are on Instagram now! Use #fbcsandpoint #sandpointstrong

Oh, and May 8th happens also happens to be National NO Socks Day. So, ditch the socks. Expect that your mom my lecture you about the need for socks, and how unsanitary it is to wear shoes without them.

Our breweries are still open for take out. Show them some love. Stayay healthy and keep on riding!

Full Moon Fiasco 102

Weird times huh?

When: Tue, Apr 7th
Where: All of Sandpoint
Theme: Bikes N Beer

Obviously with our current state of affairs we are unable to gather for a ride. Eichardt's isn't even open for us to gather and have a beer (although hit them up for take out).

During these challenging times, getting outside and getting exercise have been encouraged. What better way to do it than on your bike! So, we are asking that you grab your family or a couple friends, your bikes, maintain 6' and head out for a little cruise at some time on April 7th. Know that when you do, fellow FBCers will be doing the same and thinking of you.

Please TAKE PICTURES and share them to the FBC Sandpoint Facebook and/or Instagram page...yes, we are on Instagram now!

Oh, and April 7th happens to be National Beer Day. Our breweries are still open for take out. Show them some love.

Hopefully, things will have improved next month, and we will be able to see each other. Until then, stay healthy and keep on riding!

Full Moon Fiasco 101 in Review

Our last ride celebrated 8 years of doing these full moon rides. It is kinda a grand event, so people come dressed in formal attire. 50+ riders joined in on a cruise that took us through South Sand.

We ended at Idaho Pour Authority.If you didn't already know, Jon and Vicki recently sold IPA to Ben and Jeannie Higgs (who also own the Powder Hound). All 4 owners were on hand for the event as they opened up special hours just for the full moon ride. It was a bitter, sweet ending as Jon and Vicki have created such a unique business in downtown Sandpoint. They have done a lot for our community. And they have been big supporters of FBC Sandpoint since the beginning. They will be missed, but I'm sure they have an exciting new chapter of their life to start. Stoked to see Ben and Jeannie take the helm. Congrats!

Anyways, we also unveiled the Rolling Juke Box for the ride! We bumped some tunes and even got to take it in IPA to show it off. I'm pretty sure 90s gangster rap has never been played in IPA before...and pretty sure it will never happen again.

We crowned Matt our FBC Sandpoint Member of the Year. We only had 1 award to give, but if we had 2 we would have given one to his wife as well. Him and his wife, Erin, never seem to miss a ride. They usually always dress up. They are always bringing new riders along. They have never violated our #1 rule of "never being an asshole." In fact, they are always smiling, positive and bring an amazing energy to the rides. They have become great assets to the club, and stoked to seem themm every month.

Thanks to our sponsors!

Full Moon Fiasco 101

We made it over the hump...

When: Tue, Mar 10th @ 7pm
Where: Eichardt's
Theme: Formal Birthday Attire

8 years.

This ride will be a pretty big deal.  There will be some live music (or at least a good chance).  There will be some embarrassing stories of FBC's younger days (highly good chance).  There will be awards for Best Dressed male/female (highly, highly good chance).  There will be a bike ride (most def).  There will be the crowning of the highly coveted FBC Sandpoint Member of the Year (for sure).  There will be some random goodies given away (hot damn).

Full Moon Fiasco 100 in Review

Well, our 100th ride came and went. Some 50+ riders showed up for the monumental occasion, that's a pretty damn good turn out for February. The weather did play in our favor, and the moon was visible.

Our route took us out Boyer and over Popsicle Bride back to town. We returned to Eichardt's for our final destination. It only seemed fitting that we would end our 100th ride back at Eich's, as Jeff and the rest of the staff have been such great supporters of our rides since day #1. All 100 rides have started at Eich's, and I don't see that changing in the future. So, big thanks to them for their continued support.

Our 100th ride happened to also fall on National Extraterrestrial Visitor/Cultural Day. So, we celebrated our visitor's from afar as well.

If you were at the ride, you got a FBC sticker and a custom FBC button. Big thanks to FBC Lifetime Members for Life Whitney and Dave for the buttons! Those will be collector items. And extra special thanks to Dave for also leading the ride.

Next month will be our FBC Birthday Ride as we celebrate 8 years of these crazy monthly gatherings.

Full Moon Fiasco 100

Well, would you look at that!!!!

When: Tue, Feb 11th @ 7pm
Where: Eichardt's
Theme: Extraterrestrial Visitor/Cultural Day

Hard to believe isn't it? There is actually a day to celebrate aliens. Oh, or is it harder to believe this is actually ride #100? Anyways, Extraterrestrial Visitor/Cultural Day was passed by the House back in 2003. Why you may ask? Well, it is all based around New Mexico and Roswell...don't know about that, google it.

"According to the memorial, the day was created because "extraterrestrials have contributed to the worldwide recognition of New Mexico through their many and ongoing visitations, sightings, unexplained mysteries, attributed technological advances, experimentations, expeditions, explorations, intrigues, provision of story lines for Hollywood epics and other accomplishments of alien beings throughout the universe." -- Checkiday

So, we'll gather and celebrate ride #100 and hope some visitors from afar show up on our ride. Bring some dollars as we will have special spoke cards and some mystery memorabilia...

Full Moon Fiasco 99 in Review

99 bottles of beer on the wall,
99 bottles of beer.
Take one down and pass it around,
98 bottles of beer on the wall...

Full Moon Fiasco 99 is in the books. Our ride happened to fall on Bittersweet Chocolate Day. Who doesn't like chocolate?! So, it seemed like a good theme.

20+ riders braved the winter storm and were rewarded with some dark chocolate. We did a short cruise through downtown and a loop through City Beach. We plowed through the rather deep snow and arrived and the nice and toasty warm Connie's Lounge for our destination.

I don't think anyone was anxious about heading back out into the storm, so most stayed rather long. Thanks to Linda and the rest of the Connie's staff for having us, and keeping us hydrated.

Next ride is #100!!! Stay tuned...
