Last night I attended Fiasco #17 and I was surprised by the turnout. There must've been about 30-35 people on the wind assisted ride from The Swamp to The Globe. I love the incredulous people we see along the way: "What's with all the bikes?" "What's going on?" "Where you guys goin'?" As if there was some secret underground ne'er-do-well cycling insurgents on the prowl. I think it's safe to say the Fucking Bike Club and the Full Moon Fiasco is here to stay.
I got to thinking about how this happened. The Fucking Guy stuck with it even though nobody else showed up for the first four Fiascos. Then someone discovered the FBC blog and ridership grew. Some exposure in the local print media and the next thing you know a large group of cyclists think going for a late night ride under a full moon is cool. But word started with his blog.
So I started looking for and at Spokane blogs. Cycling is well represented. How cool is that? Now this list is not intended to be exhaustive. I'm sure there are others out there. I left some off because they hadn't been posted on for three months or more.
I think Spokane has potential.
