Fullmoon name and art meaning :
Full Hunter’s Moon – October
Many moons ago, Native Americans named this bright moon for many obvious reasons. Leaves are falling and hunters could easily see animals that come out to glean from the fallen grains. With winter right around the corner, the Hunter’s Moon is generally accorded with special honor, historically serving as an important feast day in both Western Europe and among many Native American tribes.
October 1st will be our 122nd Full Moon Bike ride! We’re going to do a similar ride to the ride we did in March. Meet at Balboa Park Fountain and we’ll head over to Civita Park in Mission Valley. 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.
*The Awarewolfs claims no responsibility for any injuries that happen from a The Awarewolfs associated ride. YOU ARE ENTIRELY RIDING AT YOUR OWN RISK.*
