This weekend there just so happens to be one of those events in my backyard.
Author of “Party Across America,” Michael Guerriero, describes Tour De Fat as a “rolling carnival on wheels that’s sponsored by a brewery with a conscience”¦ part costume party, part pedaling pandemonium, and 100% chaotic originality.” He adds, “the atmosphere is that of a hip carnival or a rock “˜n’ roll circus.”
New Belgium Brewery, of Fort Collins, Colorado, sponsors this event that occurs throughout the summer and fall in 13 cities across the western United States. On Saturday, September 4, the Tour comes home to Fort Collins, Colorado.
Tour de Fat is a parade of costumed beer drinkers on bikes followed by lots of partying. The message is “Bikes are cool. Throw away your car keys and ride!” Okay I sort of made that up, but it’s the basic message of Tour de Fat. The festivities also includes bands and other less traditional entertainment.
