What is the Tour de Fat?
Glad you asked! The Tour de Fat is a free fifteen-city philanthropic bikes and beer festival brought to you by New Belgium Brewing, makers of Fat Tire (beer!). As a brewery conceived on a bike ride through Belgium, New Belgium created the Tour de Fat to celebrate bike culture and to raise money for infrastructure, advocacy and a more bike-friendly life for all. This year, with your help, the program will surpass $2-million raised for cycling non-profits since its beginnings in 2000.
