Tour de Fat is an annual pro-bike tour sponsored by New Belgium. The events, which take place in various large cities around the West, include music, beer, circus-type performances, bicycle dance troupes, and a large group bike ride. The main event is a bike trade, in which a local participant transfers the title to their vehicle to New Belgium, in exchange for a new commuter bike and trailer.
The bike parade is fashioned after a Mardi Gras style funeral procession for the automobile. This years music was provided by The March Fourth Marching Band. Does anyone in this town NOT have a costume?
