What is the FBC?
The FBC is a national bike club that originally started in St. Louis. Since then it has expanded to cities across North America. This little Full-moon Bike Club holds a ride every...well, full moon, called The Full Moon Fiasco...creative but descriptive. We will normally meet at Eichardt's at a specific time. The ride routes and destinations (for more revelry) are a mystery known by only a handful. Rides are meant to be social as we stay in a group and keep both length and speed of rides low. We obey traffic laws and are NOT a critical mass.
How do you become a member?
Easy. Show up on one of our rides, ride with us and upon completion you will become a FBC Lifetime Member for Life. Some rides will have themes and others will not, but all rides will feature a creative little spoke card that you can take home to remind you of the good times. It will cost you a buck and your generous donation will help fund prizes, special events and whatever else we deem necessary to make the night fun.
Ok, the FBC has two simple rules: DO NOT be an asshole and have fun! Particulars would include respect traffic laws and your fellow riders. We want to relay a positive image for cyclists on the roads to motorists and other members in our community. Lastly, we have two requests (not rules): wear a helmet (this is not a law either) and put lights on your bike (this is actually a law).
While we want to be a positive cycling image in our community and promote cycling as a fun form of personal expression, transportation and exercise...we focus on bike rides and fun. The FBC has no formal organization or leadership. However, Sandpoint has a very active and powerful bike organization representing all forms of cycling called the Pend Oreille Pedalers. We suggest joining them and supporting the cause!
