July: Sand in Your Tires

Another beautiful weekend ride!

Cardinal Wine & Spirits really has us spoiled. This time Bob made us Italian beef with homemade giardiniera! After beef and blackberry shooters, we were ready to ride.
Nice face tattoo!
We headed down to Montrose beach just in time for the police to come by and tell us the beach was closed. We had a half hour left until closing but I guess someone wanted to go home early. We didn't let that get us down and headed to a quieter spot further North.

Serious moonlight

A little off the end of the lakefront path brings us to The Sovereign. They have handy Brompton storage at this bar.
It was the bartender's idea

We didn't stay long because talk of an extra credit bar turned into talk of glogg slushies.



Simon's slushies

Our moon photo got cheers from the cars driving by.

Buck Moon

July 8th is the next ride!

We will start at Cardinal Wine & Spirits, 4905 N. Lincoln. This will be our meeting place for a while. It has a friendly bartender who makes us food, an attached liquor store and regulars who share their swedish fish. But still check in, just in case we change it up.


Meet around 8, leave around 9. Another summer weekend ride! Be there!

June: The Month of Butts

June's ride fell the day before Naked Ride. We were just warming them up.

We started at Cardinal Wine & Spirits, headed to the park and then to O's Tavern, where PBR is craft beer.
If you ever need a day beer, this is your place.

And everyone who showed up joined us on the ride! No stragglers left at the bar!

100!


8(ish) years and we made it to Full Moon Fiasco 100!


We spent weeks hollering at everyone to come out and the night of the ride the rain tried to scream louder. It poured but people still showed up! Our new bff bartender made us food because "you knuckleheads have to get some food in you before you go out there drinking!"

All the food groups.




 And he did this:

We famous!

We had fun things to give away!
Motivational erasers

Spoke card

And we were successful at our beer century! We used a sticker method to track drinks. No one left unstickered. The rain finally let up so we grabbed park drinks (the advantage of starting at a slashie), stickered them and left.

Making friends

Then the ride headed to the most wood paneled of bars.
Just like grandpa's basement

We also found out about two more active FBCs, Madison and Sandpoint. Mad FBC calls their rides travesties instead of fiascos and they have themes!

Next ride is dangerously close to the World Naked Bike Ride. Will there be more than moons?
