FBC II - Biketoberfest

Good times were had by all. Starting a ride with a full tank of Dunkel from the Uberstein should likely be a mandatory pre-ride prep from now on. We did take a pitstop for some eats and more beer at about the halfway point so Darin could catch up with us after his "inlaw dinner". The pitstop O'Shaugnessy's couldn't have been chosen better. Bikeless Mike, a friend from way, way back gave us some exemplary service and sent us on our way to the Huettenbar. Try the Alt at the Huetten if you get a chance.

If anyone's reading this, one item worth note is the discussion had Friday night about getting the Chicago FBC on the Full Moon cycle. We won't be able to accomplish this before the end of the year because of schedule demands outside the world of bicycling, but it's looking good for 2009. Should inspire a lot of crazy as well.


  1. Just found the site! Good luck on putting it together in 09. It took a few months to get a solid pack of riders, but now all the rides have at least 24+. I'm glad you decided to give it a shot. Let me know when you plan to visit again and we'll throw together a ride even if the moon won't cooperate.

  2. Hey, I remember meeting you on that ride when you were in Spokane. Hope your injuries heal soon so you can get back on the bike.

  3. way to go chicago! stay rad
