Rain or Shine, Hurricane or Wild Fire.

If the moon is full the FBC will ride no matter the weather. In the event of an arctic squall or locust infestation the ride will just be a little shorter. That being said, meet at Turtle Park before 11pm and bring some beers, we will not be stopping at the liquor store right off the bat.

The Bike Show is being held at the Humbolt South Shelter(East of Center Cut)in Tower Grove Park. It is an all day event, noon until dark. Bring Your Own Everything.

So, in essence the fbc is kinda like the postal service as described above the James A. Farley building in New York City,
“Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.”

I would add “…nor punctured tubes…”

What would you add???

If you don't come because of the rain, then you should be ashamed of yourself.

Yes,

Please at least bring a tube that fits your bike.

I don't mind helping change the flats at the back of the group but I am getting sick of giving away my tubes to fix those flats.

I appreciate the longer ride and the new direction/hosier exposure... Now if only the ignant fat white hooters dude hadn't started shit with some poor driver it would have been a perfect ride...

also where was captain safety when we could have used him?

well the UMR guys had a great time. As for the car-hooters guy incident, here's my official report for those that weren't there, and those that were there and were confused as to what was happening: At that left turn where we got split up and some guy called us bike riding hippies, a car turned left with us, but honked at us while doing it. Hooters Boombox Guy (HBG from here) raced after the car and caught it at the light where we made the right on to kingshighway. Seeing him race off, I realized something bad was going to happen, so I sped up to see what was going to happen and try to diffuse anything. When I got there, HBG was dancing in front of a silver car while the light was red (I personally thought it was the black car next to the silver car that had honked, but I could be wrong). The light changed and he mounted his bike, but didn't move. I don't remember if the car honked or not, but eventually it rammed HBG and then bumped him a few more times. I jumped out in front of the car banging on their hood telling them to stop. Alot of the other people at the intersection were yelling at the car, too. Eventually everybody moved out of the way and the car sped off to the right and pulled into a little parking lot behind a huge SUV-limo. Apparently she called the cops. We rode up to them and much yelling was had. We all decided to give it up, I guess, and we all just rode off. The lady driving called us cowards. I wonder what the cops ended up doing about it? I also wonder why the car had no rear license plate.

But enough about that, how'd the bike show and alleycat go? I wish I could have made it.

PS-sorry for the superlong post.

FBC Rule #1: Don't be an asshole. Rule #2: No assholes! Thanks Hooter Hoosiers. Thanks a lot for making the city a little less hostile for those of us who ride our bikes more than once every five years.

For the record, we need to SLOW DOWN on these rides. A man can't drink and bike in safety at these speeds, people!

Out like baggy jeans,

As your student nurse, can I remind everyone (read admin) that fictional acounts of fictional friction between fictional parties should not be cateloged here or anywhere else in cyberspace.

Leave your tall tales for the bar or fishing shack or tell it to your grandkids.
