Fullmoon name and art meaning :
Full Sturgeon Moon – August
The fishing tribes are given credit for the naming of this Moon, since sturgeon, a large fish of the Great Lakes and other major bodies of water, were most readily caught during this month.
August 3rd will be our 120th Full Moon Bike Ride. Everyone did well on our group ride last month by keeping their distance and wearing face coverings when needed. Same rules apply this month. We will start at Golden Hill Park and head towards Balboa Park. If you joined us back in January you’ll know the end spot, if you didn’t it’s a surprise. There will be Hills so bring the right bike. Bring a Mask and Keep your distance. NO DRAFTING, that’s not 6 feet apart HAHA!

The Awarewolfs believe in following current CDC guidelines. As COVID-19 continues, bicycling provides significant physical and mental health benefits that counter the downsides of a quarantine. We also believe, as do many other outlets, that riding a bike alone, while practicing physical distancing, poses little to no threat of spreading COVID-19. However, you should be careful while riding in public, especially to avoid any injuries at this time.
THE AWAREWOLFS FMBR GUIDELINES :
“We’re a pack. Not a mass.”
STOP AT RED LIGHTS + YIELD AT STOP SIGNS
STICK TOGETHER + STAY IN ONE LANE + HOLD YOUR LINE
RESPECT THE RULES OF THE ROAD AND ONE ANOTHER
CALL OUT CARS + COMMUNICATE WITH THE PACK
WEAR YOUR HELMET + USE YOUR LIGHTS
DRIVERS WILL NOT RESPECT US UNTIL WE RESPECT THEM.
Don’t be a negative example of a positive movement.
FULLMOON BIKERIDES (FMBRs for short) are a group bicycle rides that take place every full moon. FMBRs are a great way to stay in tune with the lunar calendar and consistent occurrence that gets you off your couch to 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, Denver CO, 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.
