Fullmoon name and art meaning :
Full Pink Moon – April
Native American’s gave the Full Moon this name because of all the herb moss pink, or wild ground phlox, which is one of the earliest widespread flowers of spring.
Sorry we postponed yesterday… The rain was really coming down for a bit there and we thought it was going to keep raining and no one likes riding in the rain right so – sorry. But, looking at the hourly weather for 92101, it looks like it should clear up rrright as we leave TONIGHT on our 129th FMBR!
We’ll be meeting at Embarcadero South behind the San Diego Convention Center and riding 8.5 miles down to Chula Vista’s J Street Marina Bayside Park. There’s a cool pier there that we’ve ended at before – provides an awesome space to have a snack n “stuff” before heading back home. The ride is going to be almost 8.5 miles one way and the road we take is definitely not one of the smoothest… Just make sure you and your bike are ready!
AWLFS – we need your help – seriously –
WEAR A MASK!
Our Fullmoon Bikerides, on average, bring out about 50 riders. We understand that the risk of catching COVID when riding a bike is small, but when the group is large, and half of all y’all aren’t wearing a mask – well, we start getting comments, and messages, and justifiable concerns over whether or not we should be doing group rides during COVID…
So please – WEAR A MASK on the Fullmoon Bikeride.
One of the main reasons we originally started doing FMBRs was because the Fullmoon is the perrrfect, naturally occurring event to keep yourself in check and get ya ass off the couch and out on your bike! Studies have shown that riding your bike improves mental health tremendously so mask up, helmet up, and join us on a little bike ride!
Direct questions comments or concerns?
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.
