Theme: Unasshole the FBC
I was listening to the radio the other day, and this song by Prophets of Rage came on. The song got me thinking, and I've noticed that there are a lot of new faces on the rides recently...and I mean a lot. Not uncommon for this time of year. But it reminds me that theses new riders probably don't know the rule of FBC Sandpoint or the goal of these Full Moon rides.
First, if you have not read the FAQs Page on the FBC Sandpoint website, take a few minutes now and get up to speed. Done? If not, I will give you the cliff notes. The #1 rule of FBC rides is don't be an asshole. This strong language effectively summarizes how you should be behaving when riding in this group, under the Full Moon. The goal of these rides is to gather riders to have fun each month, and to display a positive image of cyclists to our community. Therefore, we ask the following:
- Respect fellow riders.
- Respect motorists we are sharing the road with.
- Respect traffic laws. Specifically, don't ride in opposing traffic lanes, don't ride down sidewalks and stay behind the front riders in OUR traffic lane.
- Have lights on your bike.
- These rides are R rated, meaning it is not recommended or safe for children
If you cannot abide by the requests of this group, then don't come on the rides. Rider numbers and whether we have 50 or 400 riders doesn't matter one bit to me. What matters is that riders on FBC have a fun, safe ride and not be a assholes. Thanks for your time. See you Monday.
