Tour de Fat rolls into Gas Works

July 31st, 2010 · No Comments

A parade of hundreds of cyclists (many costumed) on bikes of every stripe cruised from Gas Works Park through Fremont and back to power up the Tour de Fat.

Tour de Fat is a traveling carnival and beerfest that New Belgium Brewing stages each summer in cities across the country to promote travel by bicycle and sustainability. This event was co-sponsored by Bicycle Alliance of Washington and BikeWorks.

One of the most popular areas was the art bike corral (“Rideable Art-icles”), where anyone willing to don a helmet could take a spin on whimsical welded contraptions.

The day culminates with a car-for-bike swap, with great fanfare. See that story, “Wallingfordian Trades Car for Bike at Tour de Fat.”
