Fullmoon Name + Art Meaning :
Full Harvest Moon – September This full moon’s name is attributed to Native Americans because it marked when corn was supposed to be harvested. Most often, the September full moon is actually the Harvest Moon, which is the full Moon that occurs closest to the autumn equinox. In two years out of three, the Harvest Moon comes in September, but in some years it occurs in October. At the peak of harvest, farmers can work late into the night by the light of this Moon. Usually the full Moon rises an average of 50 minutes later each night, but for the few nights around the Harvest Moon, the Moon seems to rise at nearly the same time each night: just 25 to 30 minutes later across the U.S., and only 10 to 20 minutes later for much of Canada and Europe. Corn, pumpkins, squash, beans, and wild rice the chief Indian staples are now ready for gathering.

FULLMOON BIKERIDES, or FMBR for short, is group bicycle ride that takes place every full moon. It is a great way to stay in tune with the lunar calendar and also a consistent occurrence that makes you get off your couch and ride your bike. We urge everyone to obey the rules of the road while on this ride and be as aware as possible.
Be sure YOU and YOUR BIKE are up for a medium paced ride. “Anyone and anybike” is welcome but, a fixed gear, road bike, ten speed, or mountain bike is the best to keep up. If you’re leading the pack, stick together and try not to drop anyone.
***We want YOU to host a FULLMOON BIKERIDE.***
FMBRs have now happened in San Diego CA, Dallas TX, Tempe AZ, Las Vegas NV, Bristol England, Johannesburg South Africa, Oslo Norway and a few other places. We want to have more cities around the world hosting an AWLF inspired FMBRs to raise awareness of our mission – SAFE CYCLING ADVOCACY.
