Handlebar? Again? The FBC has really jumped the shark.

If every other ride is gonna end at Handlebar, I'm glad this shit is ending after Full Moon Fiasco #100.

Lee, I had the most random dream last night. You were going to let me in your new club, but only if I passed a test. That test happened to be chugging an insane amount of alcohol. I was saved when a bunch of your friends showed up & helped me drink it all. Your girlfriend even showed up to give me chugging advice. lmao! Then you let me in your club & there was much rejoicing between my husband and I.

wouldn't "jumping the shark" refer to a ridiculous stunt that defies reality and typical conventions in an effort to inject excitement into something that has gotten old and stale? if anything, going to handlebar time and time again would be like a typical happy days episode. "jumping the shark" would be if, say, the FBC ride started in wentzville instead of st louis. or if we rode skateboards instead of bikes... no, i don't think you understand what the phrase "jump the shark" refers to.

Jumping the Shark is that moment in time where something ceases to be as good as the original.

Remember when we had awesome rides and awesome parties under full moons? Last night's ride was fantastic. I love riding my bike, and I really enjoyed last night's route through our beautiful city. But ending at Handlebar (again) is predictable, repetitive, and lazy. I expect more from our beloved Fucking Bike Club.

Remember the Donut House? Remember partying around giant bonfires in the city? Remember Grant's Trail? Remember chilling in a parking lot with a fountain soda because you've biked so long, you need a break from turning pedals?

I remember rides like that, and they're cherished memories.

Every Full Moon Fiasco has the potential to be the greatest night of our lives. But if we're just going to end up at that dive bar/dance club/fine dining establishment (or whatever Handlebar is trying to be this week) every ride or two, we're wasting amazing opportunities.

It's something to consider.

Dirk,

I suggest you spend 5 minutes and plan a fun ride. Then we can do your ride and all have a great time.

I've planned so many that it sometimes feels like a burden to come up with something new ever lunar cycle. The Fucking Bike Club has a 90 month history of people stepping up to improve the club.

You can be one of the people who makes the FBC awesome, rather than someone who complains about shit you don't like on the internet.

the actual "shark jumping" was a specific moment in time, one crucial scene, that sums up the change in tone and quality of happy days. you can't end a ride at handlebar 99 times in a row, and then on the 100th time say "they jumped the shark". what is the "shark" that FBC jumped? if something is consistent over a given time (even consistently going downhill) there is no one specific scene or moment in time where a shark was jumped.

i'm not disagreeing about the repetitiveness of ending the ride at the same bar every time. i could take or leave it (i usually split off before then, anyway). i just don't think "jumping the shark" is a phrase that applies to this situation.

I enjoyed the route last night, and also the fact that the turnout was smaller than recent rides! I agree that Art Hill WAS awesome! Can we so soon forget the break for sprinkler cool off? Good route Cole :)

Looking forward to BLUE MOON

to me a bar is a bar, show up with the right people and you can have as good of a time as you make it. rather than complain about the bar choice, make your own fun. plus what a better place to end a bike ride than a bicycle themed bar?

As my grandma never said, "Haters are going to hate." What I have always understood about this AWESOME club is the number one rule is DON'T BE A JERK. I love this club and have come into it fairly recently (Fiasco 67 or 69, can't quite remember) and have always loved the good times happening for good time loving people.

I guess what I mean is who GAF where we end up as long as we are a group of people who like riding bikes and drinking beer (or what have you.)

Also I loved the fact that we ended at Handlebar to hear what sweet, sweet tracks my brother Mark was laying down. If you wish that we would end at a pool I suggest you figure out what pool will house 200+ fun loving people at one in the morning and bring it up to someone. It is really easy to complain on the internet... in fact, I'm doing it right now!!!!!!! Great route. Great Ride. Stopping at that school to run thru sprinklers was awesome.

if lance armstrong hadn't discovered the moon someone else would have eventually. don't see what the big deal is. plus it's way easier to ride your bike on the moon because there is less gravity. big deal. st louis would be so much easier to bike with 1/4 of the gravity...

Neil Armstrong outer space blue moon bike ride! It sounds great, you should plan it! Seriously, you could plan a ride in moon suits and find drink specials on blue moon, or pop's blue moon near the Hill. I will be out of town, but I know one lifetimer for life fearless leader would be more than happy to announce you as leader of the ride! You even get to make your own spoke cards! How fun is that?!
