Fullmoon name and art meaning :
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.
Alright ya punks…
We’ve decided to start FMBRs back up since our COVID pause!
But 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 a pandemic…
So please – WEAR A MASK on the Fullmoon Bikeride.
We’re going to keep it simple this month. Meet at the Balboa Park Fountain and we’ll mosey over to Golden Hill Park. The route won’t be terribly long but will involve a significant downhill as well as an uphill so make sure you and your bike are up for it.
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.
