Your Parents House

Well, we've exhausted all the other options. Its time for you to ask your parents if you can invite 100 underwear clad bike riders over to their swimming pool this Sunday night sometime after midnight.

Seriously, if your parents have a swimming pool ask them. I asked my parents and they told me that we didn't have a swimming pool. Then I asked them to build a swimming pool just for the event but they thought it would be too expensive. Also, don't be afraid to ask your parents friends if we can swim at their pool. I promise that everyone will be on their best behavior.

Everyone I have talked to about Steven Barney Wilkes' Most Illogical Alley Cat Race, said it was a king bitch good time. I've seen the spoke cards and race materials and let me tell you, the Alley Cat set a new record for best production value and organization on an FBC event. Congratulations to Christopher Connolley for winning the race and to Casey Saunders for getting dead fucking last.

I hope that everyone follows in the footsteps of Steven and Jim Utz and takes it upon themselves to put on their own kick ass FBC event. If anyone is interested in getting something started, I am happy to give out the password for this website so you can make your voice heard in the cavernous expanses of the internet.

FBC legend Jeff Everett and his wife recently moved to Spokane Washington. The have already started a Spokane Chapter of FBC and an FBC Spokane blog. Check it out here,

Jeff predicts a turn out of two (2) riders for the Fiasco on Sunday, him and his wife. I wonder if they will be riding in their underwear.

If you have any leads on a swimming pool please let me know.

Sorry Lee. I hate to disappoint, but it will be sub 60 degrees Sunday night. Not good on the nips.

When you guys get started it will by 9:00 here. Somebody call so I can hear the announcement. Cole, I think you have my number.

I won't tell a lie, that was a lot of damn work.

It wasn’t just me either. It was a team of dedicated and creative volunteer fbc’ers that made the alley cat happen. Thanks again and again to those who know who you are! I just loved the theme of checkpoint #2. Some of my tricks worked too, like the initial pictures and two decoy riders on the course. (I had to make them decoys, they knew the route and stops ahead of time. Who do you think I tested the format out on?).

I am a little worn around the edges but I am already thinking about what I could do differently. If there is a brave soul that wants to try their hand at promotion of an event, I would gladly act as a consultant or maybe even an asssistant.

On with the FUN!.

how would everyone feel about a lake, pond, or river if there is no pool.

from "how to avoid the bummer life"

Steps to a good weekend;
1) Wear a straw hat.
2) Ride a bicycle.
3)Throw your underpants away.
4) Have a cocktail out of a tiki mug.

See? Its really just that easy.
