Fasten your wild wings, billowing capes, eccentric tights, preposterous hats, face-paints, swirlers, twirlers, and prepare to find glitter in all nooks and crannies because Tour de Fat is coming at you for their 18th annual celebration of beer, bikes, music, and costumes. Let’s be honest, it’s the best participatory adult circus party in the land.
Starting May 20 in Asheville, NC (where the second branch of NB has taken root) and ending in Tempe, AZ on October 7, the season long jamboree is spreading high vibrations across the nation. Tour de Fat will be rolling through Colorado, hitting Colorado Springs, Boulder, Denver, and, most importantly, its birthplace here in Fort Collins on September 2. The All American Rejects and X Ambassadors will be our entertainment, along with a myriad of other acrobatic and comedic acts. New Belgium has raised more than $4.5 million for partnering non-profits since its inception. This summer Tour de Fat hopes to generate more than $600,000 in support of local causes. Tour de Fat Fort Collins benefits Bike Fort Collins, Overland Mountain Bike Club, Fort Collins Bike CO-OP, and Ciclismo Youth Foundation, so be sure to grab your tickets today.
