In a week we will all be riding our bikes to the fourth annual Festivus ride. This will be the 41st Full Moon Fiasco, and only the 6th to be moved to a date not on the full moon. Enough stats, let's get on with it before I get all misty.

Just to let those new Lifetime Members For Life know what Festivus is all about, here it is in a nutshell. This is a time to decorate your bike and your person and your favorite person with whatever festive adornment you can get and wassail through town from the Swamp to our destination party (which has a full bar, food, kick ass DJ and heat). It is also a chance for me to pass out free shit.
I have been lucky enough to secure some really great items from local shops and not so local shops, to give away as prizes for your participation. What sort of games are you going to have? I'll tell you, impatient reader.
  • Bike/Person Decoration - Possibly multiple categories
  • Ring Toss - The longstanding tradition
  • Obstacle Course - New to Festivus, and I'm still working this out
  • Slow Race - New and just for the fixed gear crowd
I even have a special presentation to make during the award ceremony. You don't want to miss that. So...

The Swamp 7:00pm
December 17th
Get a Spoke Card for your chance to participate. 
Please make a one (1) dollar donation. 

It's not too late to make a donation to the Festivus Ride. Sunday would be too late though. Send me an email and I can come get some items from you, or you can huck them on my front porch on your commute to work.
