FULLMOON BIKERIDE

Full Snow Moon ❄️ February

Since the heaviest snow usually falls during this month, native tribes of the north and east most often called February’s Full Moon the Full Snow Moon. Some tribes also referred to this Moon as the Full Hunger Moon, since harsh weather conditions in their areas made hunting very difficult.


#FMBR151

We’ll be meeting at super scenic Golden Hill Park and strolling over to Shelter Island where we’re planning on having a bonfire / bbq going! We’ll make a snack stop on the way to Shelter Island but this FMBR is shaping up to be a good one so invite your friend, co-worker, crush – anyone! Let’s ride bikes!

So 150+ full moons ago we started organizing these bike rides… Aside from safe bicycle advocacy, one of the reasons we started doing FMBRs was because the full moon is the perfect, naturally occurring event to get ya ass off the couch and go ride your bike. Studies show that riding your bike improves mental health so snack up, helmet up, and join us on a FMBR!

Since 2010, The Awarewolfs’ Fullmoon Bikerides, or AWLF FMBRs for short, are group bicycle rides that take place – you guessed it – 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! On these rides, we urge everyone to obey the rules of the road while on this ride and be as aware as possible. “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 riding an E Bike – please be extra aware of fellow riders and lower your speed.

If you’re considering coming out on a ride for the first time, ultimately, before the ride, ensure YOU and YOUR BIKE are up for a medium paced ride. We recommend downloading the Critical Maps App on your phone – if you get separated from the group, use the app to find us!

Planning on driving to the meetup? Or coming from out of town?? These rides are typically A to B rides – we don’t really plan the ride back to where we started. What some riders do is park their car where our rides ends and riding to the meetup. May not work for everyone / every FMBR but hey – maybe it’ll give you an idea on how you can efficiently attend our next FMBR.


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.


YOU RIDE AT YOUR OWN RISK.
