Full Moon Fiasco VIII

Beer and bicycling could be one of the best combos since beer and tacos or beer and pizza. Even since beer and more beer.



It was a crowded meet up at the Gingerman since the Decembrists were playing next door at the Metro. But, all 30 Fucking Bike Clubbers managed to gravitate to the window with beers in hand to get the Full Moon Fiasco cooking for the evening. Consider this an early warning: there may be a new meet up spot going forward.



Carolyn recommended the… Continue

Full Moon Fiasco V true-up

Our safety record stays clean (barely), there were tons of new faces, a committee is formed and as a result the FBC gets some ass (again).



Seconds after hanging up my phone, hearing that he was only a few blocks away and about to join up with us, The Hazard called back to let me know he’d just been hit by a car. The look on the driver’s face was one of shock when 20 bicyclists flew into the parking lot two minutes later to check on him. Thankfully Martin escaped the event with some… Continue

Biking in Amsterdam

When people asked me what my plans were for Amsterdam, I replied earnestly that I was going to:



A.) Rent a bike

B.) Get higher than Jesus

C.) Cruise around town on said bike with local beer in hand and enjoy the sights.



Knowing that Amsterdam is a bike-oriented city, this seemed the perfect plan. What could be wrong with it? Seems to be a pretty laid-back relaxed place right?



Wrong. Upon leaving the train station with a slightly off-kilter, hungover… Continue

Full Moon Fiascio IV true-up

Thanks to John, we have a true up this month, which I have the pleasure of uploading from Venice. (Ain't the internet swell?) and to Aaron for the pix







Fiasco #4 held true to the founding principle of "visible moon, no visible ass." Michael made his debut at the Gingerman as a new Fiasco rider; Martin regaled the uninformed with the always terrifying "Tale of the Phantom Shitter." Fried things from across the street were consumed while Darin distributed the always coveted… Continue

Full Moon Fiasco 3 true-up

On the Full Moon Fiasco, viewing the actual moon seems to be inversely porportionate to the viewing of moons of the bare ass variety. This was the first Fiasco with skies clear enough to see the moon in it's shining splendor. (Matt H had good route intel that we could see it over the Graceland Cemetary on Clark.) But sadly, there was not a critical mass of shining white ass later in the eve. Sadly, there will be no full moon photo this month.





So speaking of ass, it was cool to… Continue

Great ride last night!  I finally am over "can I really do this in the middle of winter?" complex.  Bonus is that you introduced to one of our own neighborhood's fun watering holes, only four blocks away!

Hey Dana.

Nice to see and visit with you on Marauders. I'll be missing this month's installment of the Fiasco due to Ragbrai so my first cocktail on Sunday, I'll hoist to the east in homage to the FBC and the Full Moon Fiasco!

Me ol Silver Bullet was stolen. If anyone has a spare bike I could borrow/buy it would be great.

Tiny tiny bar, big big drinking problems.

Thanks for the ride and the slick spoke card. I'll see you on the next one.
