THE BEST CLUB IN THE WORLD.

Is there going to be a ride for National Night Out on the 4th? Let's ride, east some good BBQ, and blow up Osama Bin Laden fireworks.
is lee still in chicagp?
National Night Out ride at 7?! I think Lee is busy, but we should go for a ride anyway.National Night Out Ride.Turtle Park @ 7pmRide leaves at 7:38 sharp??
YES! let's duet!
i work till ten.
Until Brian, the leader of the FBC, announces that there is a "National Night Out" ride...there isn't one. Any false prophets will be sought out and when captured will be force fed some 'straight from the tap' Bri-Zone Beer. And anyone else that comments on this blog is gay!
oh briguy. im going to kill you. how dare you undermine our plots to take controll of FBC. you will answer for these travesties. there will be no said bribeers!
eh I was gay before I left a comment on this blog. Sorry to beat you to the punch, mom.
A. Brian has to work tonight, so he won't be making any plans.B. Brian quit FBC when the group abandoned him at the Belleville Metrolink station. As a result, Brian's new bike club is the "New Moon Nightmare."
i gotta werk tonight too. i thought brian was one of the said rowdy ones on the way home from drive in?
This past June, after the movie, the group was split at the Metrolink station. Six riders were left behind in Belleville. Brian was one of the six left stranded.He swore revenge and declared war on anyone associated with FBC.
Let's ride bikes tonight.Somebody make it happen.Please.
OK, so I heard about this cool club-ish / event thing. Is there a theme this month or should a first timer just show up in bike riding clothes and hope for the best?
No theme this month.Just show up and have fun.
Lee is back. He will ride both nights.
Why don't you just...get on a bike tonight? And ride it? You seriously need other people to make that happen for you?
wait just a minute. you mean i can ride a bike at times other than when this blog tells me to? this new-age thinking is going to get us all into trouble. i will probably get lost, hurt, and have to walk home because there is nobody around to change my flats for me. i need the guidance of the internet. i don't think venturing out into the world without that guidance is going to work for me.
i want to do this. i dont have a bike. booo hoooo. do you know which prime debauchery location you could end up visiting?
Judging from what looks like festering divisions welling up within FBC (Brian swearing revenge, etc), I am curious if any sponge mop jousting matches are in store.Those are always quite fun.
new moon nightmare vs fbc.
God damn. This makes me ill. Ride your fucking bike because you like riding your fucking bike, you God damn hipster. Why do you need Lee or Brian to tell you when to ride? Do you not know your way around the city? Buy a fucking map. Or better yet, get lost and allow your survival skills to kick in.
Haha. Internet. Serious business.
Dear Hipster Slayer,Please let me know when I can clean or tune your bike up, you've nailed the problem!Hipster Slayer's #1 fan
hipsters in st. louis?i have seen a ton of entitled young wash u twits on these rides, but never a hipster.
dear hipster slayer. we would all be lost without fbc. without the guidance of lee and cole and or brian, all is lost.love.idonothingbymyselfandneedapprovaltotakeashitinthemorning.
Anybody pre-lubing at Pat's?
i totally came up with the new moon thing. fuck you guys. ill kill you all.
I can only figure you were the bike club that I 'ran' into tonight on my way home tonight. Serously, you guys give bikers (which I am one of) a bad name. Follow the rules of the road. Everyone should have lights! Very dangerous and against the law not to. Bikers should stick to one lane of traffic unless you have traffic police with you. You should stay on the -right- side of the road, some of the bikers were riding against traffic on the wrong side, not good and very dangerous. If the purpose of the ride is to aggravate car drivers: Mission Accomplished. If the purpose is to safely have fun and promote biking, you are missing the mark. Don't bother flaming, since I won't be checking back. But seriously, plan better and promote safe biking rules to your club better. I'm a biker but I'm a driver too, and you are not being responsible to either modes of transit. Lastly, you will get yourselves or someone else hurt if you continue to bike in this fashion. Best luck, and please stay safe.
Sorry, but to further the last posting that is above, I did just read your note on the homepage "An open letter to all lifetime members" and TOTALLY agree. That is a very good post and should be communicated to all your riders before you set out, and during if needed. You guys may be getting to big or aggressive for your goals. It's all fun and games as long as you are sticking to the rules of the road and being safe...while having fun. What I saw tonight was dangerous. I had a very good friend of mine die while safely bike riding, and I get very upset when I see bikers riding irresponsibly. It ruins the image we all work so hard to achieve. I'm all for taking back the roads, just PLEASE do it responsibly. I hope you stick to your original intent and find ways of doing it safely. OK, enough venting, just want the 'organizers' of the ride to know that your crew is getting dangerously close to the ...till someone gets hurt part of the all fun and games phrase. Again, best of luck, and please stay safe.
Last night's ride sucked.
well...that being said, lets try again on the fourth. no littering, one lane, and i totally agreee with mr. anonynous's comment. buy a light. its ten bucks.
I had fun last night.-Lifetime Member for Life
I wish we would go back to ending in clubs and bars, with dancing and drinks. Ending in parks isn't nearly as fun.
"I wish we would go back to ending in clubs and bars, with dancing and drinks. Ending in parks isn't nearly as fun."use your imagination, and learn to ride a bike, you filthy cow.
Great ride! Hopefully we can tighten up the lane a bit and get a few more riders to bring lights. A blast though!
Ending in the park was a nice solution to the problem of the bar being packed. It was also nice ending closer to Turtle Park; it made getting back to the car a short and simple ride.I love FBC. I love riding with 400 other bike lovers. I can't wait for the next Full Moon Fiasco (or any FBC group ride that may take place between now and the next full moon).
I think comments should be disabled on this blog. That way no one bitches or moans and thinks of how it could be better if they did it.
the fbc can once again be fun if folks would get it through their heads that there is no freedom in riding like assholes blocking traffic, and getting too drunk to pedal their hybrid in a straight line.to have a bit more fun with less crashes and complaining we need i little structure.
I'd like to point out that, as far as I know, no one has ever been forced to come on a Full Moon Fiasco. If you are not into what this bike club is doing, feel free to go to a bar and get drunk with your friends. We will continue going for a bike rides with people who like fun and love bike riding. Frankly, if we could convince the anonymous complainers to either stay home, or take an active role in helping the FBC stay fun, positive and safe, maybe there would be less to complain about. This is your club, it can be whatever you want it to be.
well said sir. role up your jorts and i'll see you at polo on wed.
+2,574,900 to what Lee said.If you don't have fun on FBC rides, don't go on FBC rides. What a novel idea.A special thanks to Lee, Pete, Brian, and everyone else that donates their personal time to plan, organize, and lead FBC. Your efforts are greatly appreciated, and they do not go unnoticed.If you guys ever need an extra set of helping hands, I am eager to help out in any possible way. Seriously.-Ben
I thought Lee was straight until he commented on this blog...
this is my last comment. promise, some people apparently were not happy with the way the FBC went last night. i enjoyed pushing my bike up a hill, meeting some dude from LA and talking about messengering in stl and general. that is what always attracted me to this fucking club. riding home at 2:30 with no traffic is always something i look forward to. fbc will continue to grow and will be more fun. if you feel like riding with a light do it, if you dont...do it. if you want to ride in the middle of the street.. i guess you can do that too. we never want to see anyone get in a crash with a car or with another rider, nobody wants that. see you next time.
Did anyone else see the dude plow into the car? Is he alright?
the fbc is entertainment, not a role model.
I wish I wasn't sipping on cognac in my chateau thousands of miles away during this ride (aka I was out of town), but don't think I've seen this many comments/bitching since the Great Coyote Massacre of 2009.Lee hit the nail on the head (as usual) as did the anonymous non-lifetime member for life...just be safe and have fun. Who cares where ya go, what you do, and how you do it...as long as YOU have fun and don't reduce the fun of others, and thus acheive the greatest level of fun (utilifunianism), its allllll good.Finally, to the anonymous poster who claimed the ride sucked...no ride ever sucks for a true lifetime member for life. I had fun on last night's ride and I wasn't even in St. Louis...Love and Sprockets,DB
i am going to bring a gun that holds 300 bullets and kill everyone on the next ride. everyone in this club is either an idiot or a fag.
All the Anonymous posts were by me, sorry, I don't know what came over me. Sometimes when my mom yells at me to come out of the basement and go out and get some exercise I just get angry and I have to lash out at people who can't find me. It's not that I really hate you guys or want to hurt you, I'm just jealous of how much fun you have out after the streetlights come on. Again, sorry. Please don't take it personally.
Brian aka "leader of the pack"-Thank you so much for blocking the FBC perverts view while i urined on the hill, trying not to get it on my shoes in the process. You are a true gentleman with an outstanding beard ,some may even say better than pete's, not that I'm picking sides mind you. Can't wait to see everyone on the next ride! Love & Bacon - Sarah
Thank you to everyone that made the last bike ride so much fun, especially Brian, Lee, and Pete. I hope to see everyone at the next one.I want to say that reminding people to stay safe is not complaining, but rather responsible. If people want to keep having FBC bike rides, keep in mind it only takes one person to screw up everyone's fun. we don't want anyone to get hurt or killed, needless to say that would pretty much ruin the mood, and probably hinder future bike rides. be smart, stay safe, and have fun!thank you again,Matt
If you all like Brian, Peat, and Lee so much take turns giving them blow jobs.
should the comments be disabled on this blog if not one person wants to discuss the potential hazards within the FBC?is there a fear that no fun can be had with a little structure?this club has grown to be very large and it is only inevitable that someone is going to get seriously injured.we as riders that ride more than once a month have a responsibilityto make sure serious accidents do not occur, and discuss how we can make sure this does not happen next month.lee was correct when he said"This is your club, it can be whatever you want it to be," but astatement like that can unfortunately spark a monthly literalist bicycle melee.
Screw this drama crap...I'm skipping the next and all future FBC rides and instead plan on watching some sweet movies over on Bri-Zone's giant flat screen TV (which is the biggest in St. Louis!)
this blog is a total fucking fiasco. awesome.
Just wait until amateur night next month; I plan on calling every belligerent idiot I know and supplying them with the minimum mechanically capable bike that was left over from the piles of crap bikes in the basements of local shops, then fueling them with the cheapest malt liquor I can purchase with my food stamps card. Good luck.
have fun. be safe. stop telling me what to do. please!
FBC jumped the shark at the last prom...sad.
who says we don't give them blow jobs? Didn't you know this club isn't actually about riding your bike, its about giving the same three people continuous blow jobs. then we all go home with a warm salty sensation in our stomachs. when I was talking about safety, I was merely commenting on the fact that a couple people have taken a bit more than they can swallow. everyone needs to make sure that you don't take too much cum, and leave some for everyone else.
FBC ready bikes on craigslist.http://stlouis.craigslist.org/bik/1319423016.html
what exactly does it take for a bicycle to be 'fbc ready'? i want to make sure mine meets the requirements.
There will be bike inspections before the next Fiasco.Lee, Pete, Brian, and several others will be sending people home if they arrived on bikes that aren't deemed "FBC Ready."
Next time I'm bringing two guns instead of just one.
Guns are the refuge of the weak, that would make you double-weak son.Good luck with that.
if you do bike polo you should post about where and when. im interested
Bike Polo-Sundays at 2 and Wednesdays at 6:30 at Lindenwood Park on Jamieson.
Play Bike Polo!
.:: For anyone interested ::.Polo flyer:http://i627.photobucket.com/albums/tt352/fixed_st_louis/Flyer-FBCInvites.jpg
re: Polo player, that photo is expired.
The flyer shows up just fine for me...
if only the FBC were this cool http://www.vfagenda.com/bananarepublic/midnightride.asp
^^^ Haha.If any attractive girls want to help me fix flats during the next Fiasco, I'll be the guy desperately attempting to run over nails and broken glass while wearing Banana Republic chinos.After you fix my flat, we can ditch the ride, walk next to our bikes, share a PBR, and listen to Elliot Smith together (I'll take the left ear bud...you take the right).This is sure to be the start of a beautiful relationship.Note:SARS mask/Michael Jackson tribute at the 0:30 mark.
is there a way to disable anonymous comments but allow people with names/nutsacks? some of these posts are outrageously silly.also, to those hating on folks just for going to school at washu - go fuck yourself, i don't feel entitled.hooray for bikes, beer and tomfoolery. fbc/stl TILL I DIE
