Let's Make Some Memories

Friday July 18th The FBC presents Full Moon Fiasco 40: THE SUPER FIASCO. This one has been in the works since the very beginning and we are finally going to make it happen.

The plan is such: Leave Turtle Park at 11pm sharp and go for a bike ride. This portion of the ride will be a lot like any other Fiasco. We've got a good route picked out and we will probably end up downtown for a few cold beers. But when the bar closes that's when things get super. Anyone who feels like really living can ride on with the FBC all the way to Raging Rivers Water Park in Grafton Illinois!

Raging Rivers is a long way from downtown (60 miles?) and we won't be sleeping along the way. So if you think you are up for it, bring a swim suit and coupon from IMO's and join us. If not just make your way home from downtown but don't count on getting a spoke card for you collection. Spokecards will be handed out at dawn in some sort of weird official ceremony.

After successfully making it to the therapeutic waters of Raging Rivers and a long day of lazing in the lazy river and working on our sunburns, we will hopefully be able to score rides home with some FBC lifetime members for life who have access to a large car, van or truck and want to meet us out at Raging Rivers. I know I would definitely appreciate a ride home and wouldn't hesitate to chip in for gas money or pay a drivers admission to the park.


PS. If you are interested in driving to Raging Rivers on Saturday the 19th or have a van or pick up truck someone could drive, please let us know in the comments.

I'll be on the city part of the ride Friday night. If I come to pick folks up Saturday, will I qualify for middle-age membership for middle-age?

My car/rack can bring four people and bikes back from raging rivers.

Hey just a warning from a lifetime FBC member for life. I rode the river trail up to the Old Chain of Rocks Bridge today and there is about 3 or 4 inches of mud on the trail in the last mile. You would think that 2 feet covered covered in Mississippi clay would be beneficial to pedaling but it truly is not... All in all I'd say the road to the left side is a safer bet if the trail is the route you guys were going to take. PEACE LOVE AND BIKES... FBC FOREVER... -Micah

At the very least bring an extra tube (or maybe two) that fit your tires. If you have any troubles there are plenty of fellow fbc'ers who know a thing or two about on-the-road repairs. Even I would try to help another with their machine to keep the fun rollin' (wink)

So what progress has been made for a sag wagon for the tired, sunburned FBCer's and their bikes on Saturday? Don't forget a delicious lunch, with the 50lb. catfish, at the Fin Inn in Grafton.

i should know by now to never miss any FBC major event. Chicago was/still is a let down. im stuck here and i think my bike is probably missing since i left it on 20th just s. of market. its been 3 days im sure its gone. never again will i miss something that is so instiled in me. never again will i denie what is right. unless, that is, i dont have a bike anymore.
i wanna come home.

miss babe, your bike is still there. I told Valentine via text message but wasn't sure which way you'd get the message faster. Nothing is gone from it from what I could tell, wheels and even spoke card are intact. I figured it'd be okay since where you locked it up is pretty high foot traffic and anyone with a giant pair of chain cutters wouldn't have much of a chance going unnoticed.
see you when you come back!
