FBC #87 Full Sturgeon Moon
August 3 @ 8:00 pm - 11:30 pm
Flashback to last month’s ride posting:
We WILL be having a group ride in August. It WILL look different. If there’s only one rule and it’s “don’t be an asshole,” that will cover a LOT of territory for the August ride.
So here we are. August. This ride will be August 3rd, and will be done with a twist. Meet location will be revealed THE DAY OF THE RIDE by texting 615-763-3788 (yes, it’s really KJ, and yes, please only text). This is mostly to determine HOW MANY people are coming, and what route we can/should take, and how to do it safely. (Pro tip: it’s likely going to be close to downtown/East Nashville.) With the weird overcast/rain/sun weather patterns lately, if it’s thunder/lightning at 7:00PM I’ll call the ride. Will post on Twitter & Facebook with status updates. Hoping for decent weather.
Admittedly, this will involve some risk assessment for folks. To clarify what I’ve been doing: Working part-time in a retail setting with required safety protocols (mask usage, cleaning, etc); teaching one-on-one bicycle lessons with required safety protocols (mask usage, cleaning, physical distance); and grocery shopping as necessary, wearing a mask. Also so much hand washing, Jesus H Christ. Solo bike riding on occasion, masked and unmasked depending on the location. Having physically distant socialising one-on-one with friends about once a month, for up to an hour. I am hoping to make this ride as safe as possible given the circumstances, but will still stipulate that it involves some level of risk for all who come.
Estimated roll between 6-10 miles – allot at least 1 1/2 hours for the ride (no stop). We may linger a little at the start location afterwards (socially distant? you can remove the face coverings! it’s THAT EASY) because I miss the crap out of bikefriends. Feel free to bring a beverage for post-ride hangz, but don’t anticipate it being too long.
Face coverings required. There is no debate on this. Don’t want to wear one? Stay home. Why wear a face covering when riding in a group? Because we yell, we holler, we get a little close on the passes, we might pass other people in the street, etc.
SHARE WITH FRIENDS! We are a group of people who like bikes and riding at night and creative displays.
21+, bring lights!!!!, watch the FBC Twitter account for weather updates closer to the ride date and as always come out and have some fun.
Destination location is TBD. We roll whatever the weather EXCEPT IF IT IS SUPER CRAPPY; rides usually range from between 6-10 miles round trip and may include opportunity for beveraging at the destination location. Casual ride, novice to expert cyclists welcome, be 21+, bring lights, ***bring ID***. We have only one rule. Yes, this being Nashville, there may be hills along the route. We are a NO DROP RIDE!
Be 21+, bring ID. Only one rule: don't be an asshole.
