Full Moon Fiasco 59 in Review

Our last ride happened to be during a "supermoon."  What is a supermoon you ask?  Well, it occurs when the big ol' full moon is closer to earth than normal making it appear even fuller and larger than it usual.  Fascinating.  Wanna know something else.  It was so stormy and cloudy that night that you couldn't really see it.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and so our full moon rides during this month usually have some sort of pink theme.  We also donate all monies for the evening to Community Cancer Services.  $90 will be donated to them in FBC Sandpoint's name, thanks to everyone for giving a little extra for the evening.

Our ride also happened to fall on National Bosses Day.  So, the idea was thrown that you should dress like your boss...and somehow work in some pink as well.  That was asking a lot I know.  But many pulled it off.

Almost 40 riders showed up for what started as a very wet ride.  We dipped into South Sand and then headed across the Long Bridge.  I guess there was confusion on where we were headed (although the bridge is rather straight...and well, you can only go one way).  Anyways, the people that followed directions arrived at 41 South.  There Chris and the fine crew served us warm drinks as we sat next to the crackling fire place.

Once everyone was sufficiently dry and warm, we headed back to the Point.  The rain had cleared and it was a fine evening for riding.  The moon tried to make an appearance through the dense clouds.  There was a "bonus ride" through City Beach, the Marina, and yes, there was some roundabout riding as well.
