Full Moon Fiasco 76

Another year in the books...

When: Wed, Feb 28th @ 7pm
Where: Eichardt's
Theme: Formal Birthday Attire

FBC Sandpoint is turning 6!! I know, hard to believe it's been 6 years huh? Anyways, this is our annual birthday ride.

This evening 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).

See you then!

Full Moon Fiasco 75 in Review

20ish riders collected at Eich's for our last ride. You can see by the spoke card it happened to be National Work Naked Day. The thought of riding naked in the winter was less than exciting. Also, some people really just shouldn't be naked. And so we we all wore clothes for the ride.

Our ride also happened to fall on the eve of Groundhog Day. So, our ride took on a Bill Murray type feel as we rode a short loop and came right back to Eich's. There Doug and staff had our drinks sitting right where we left them. We hung for a while. Some riders started to get restless. So, we mounted up again and did the same short loop ending back at...you guessed it. Eich's. Again, our drinks were right where we had left them. We rewarmed ourselves, and decided to call it a night. It was a wet, cold evening but relatively warm for February.

Thanks to Doug and staff for playing along in our stupid game. Thanks to Jeff for the motivation.

Our next ride will be Feb 28th, and we will celebrate 6 glorious years of FBC Sandpoint. Stay tuned...

For visuals, well we only got one lousy picture, so here ya go.

Full Moon Fiasco 75

February here we come...

When: Thur Feb 1st @ 7pm
Where: Eichardt's
Theme: Not Working Naked

It has been said several times already, but obviously it is gonna be stated again. We started January with technically 2 full moons (Jan 1st and 31st). February has no full moons and March has 2 as well (1st and 31st).

Sometimes, for various reasons, some within our control and some out of our control cause us here at FBC Sandpoint to change the full moon ride to a day earlier or later than the actual full moon. The next couple rides will be examples.

You may not know, but February 1st is National Work Naked Day. That's right. We are NOT gonna do that. We are not gonna have any theme as we all prepare for our next ride on Feb 28th which will be our annual FBC Sandpoint Birthday Ride (celebrating 6 years).

Full Moon Fiasco 74 in Review

2018 and FBC Sandpoint HQ is off to a slow start.

On another note, we started January with technically 2 full moons (Jan 1st and 31st). February has no full moons and March has 2 as well (1st and 31st). Weird huh?

And finally, we rang in the new year with a ride on January 2nd. We had 20ish riders for the cold, icy night. We even had a group from New England here visiting family that decided to come on the ride and partake in the fun. New England should not be confused with England by the way. Just as New Mexico and Mexico are very, very different. This point and some others was lost on a couple FBC members.

Well, the brave souls from "New" England had some loaner bikes that made navigating our slick streets even more challenging than it needed to be. They ended up doing an abridged version of the route. We all rejoined at A&P's for drinks and tall tales. The night ended with some Deep Eddie, and I don't remember much after that.
