[FCC] SCUMmy Skinny Dick’s Ride planned on Sunday

The SCUM will be doing a ride to Skinny Dick’s Halfway Inn and back next Sunday (6/23). Non-SCUM are invited, too!
One of the SCUM will bring his grill to Patty Gym parking lot and afterwards riders can have some hot dogs, etc on the Patty Gym field. Bring something to grill, eat or drink. As always for SCUM rides, any pace will do, and abbreviated versions of the ride are OK, too. One way to Skinny Dick’s is about 27 miles.
The ride start Sunday at 11 a.m. All riders need to wear helmets and be FCC members (

[FCC] CHSBC Results

The Chena Hot Springs Bicycle Classic results have been posted. Sorry for the delay. I was on vacation without a computer so I couldn’t post them sooner. You can find them at under the 2019 Race Results header.
Congratulations to everyone who rode. I heard it was a wet one.

  Midnight Sun Run – Riders Needed

It is coming up on that time of year again. The 37th annual Midnight Sun Run happens a week from this Saturday, on June 22nd, starting 10pm in front of the Patty Center on UAF campus and ending inside Pioneer Park 10 kilometers later, after winding through two subdivisions and making a couple major road crossings.

The FCC participates in this event by being the pace setters for the lead runners. Basically, we provide the race with a number of FCC members to ride in front of the lead runners, staying a steady distance ahead of them so they can focus on us rather than having to deal with distractions (spectators, people wandering out into the course, pets, etc.) as they are running.

I need about 4-6 members who want to participate. The total time commitment is approximately an hour if that (we'll meet at 9:30 at our rally point and then form up in front of the runners right before the race starts, and then the actual race takes about 20 minutes or so from start to finish) and the only thing that is required is you are a member of the FCC and that you wear some FCC gear (t-shirt, jersey, shorts, etc.) if you have such.

We also provide for basic course security, i.e., keeping the course clear of spectators, pets, etc. and basically ensuring that no one wanders out into the race course.

Leave a message at my home phone (455-8448) or text me at my cell phone (687-0777) to let me know you're interested.

I'll call you back with a little more information about where to meet, what to expect, etc.

It's a fun way for the club to participate in this annual event and get the club out in the public eye.

[FCC] CHSBC Is Still Happening!

The Fairbanks Cycle Club is *NOT* canceling the Chena Hot Springs Bicycle classic* for smoke or rain*. It is up to the discretion of the participant if the environmental conditions provide a hazard to one’s health.
Thank you.

[FCC] Found light

Hey I was wondering if any SCUM lost a nice bike tail light Sunday on the way out the Parks. I may have found it on my return route. Contact me to describe and claim.

[FCC] FCC Bike Swap report and request

The FCC Bike Swap was a big success! We made almost $2,500 for the club and we sold just over 60 bikes, as well as lots of parts and gear. That means a lot of happy people on bikes!
I plan to run the swap again next year. If you attended (as a seller, buyer, or both) and have any comments or suggestions on how to improve it, please tell me what went right and what went wrong. I’d like to improve it. Send emails to fbxtrails (at)

[FCC] FCC Bike Swap this Sunday!

Remember, the FCC Bike Swap happens this Sunday, May 19, in the front parking lot of Pioneer Park (just like last year). The schedule for the event is as follows: —11:30am-12:30pm: Bike and bike gear drop off —1pm-3pm: Bike and bike gear sale —3pm-4pm: Payment to sellers, unsold merchandise pick up
This event encourages people to get out and have a healthy lifestyle by biking more. It also serves as a fundraiser for the Fairbanks Cycle Club. The club retains 20% of the selling price of any items sold (with a $100 maximum for any seller).
