Oil your bike chain and press the polyester, Tour de Fat is back in San Francisco on Saturday, July 21nd at Speedway Meadow in Golden Gate Park. Come join us for a ballyhoo of bikes & beer sponsored by the New Belgium Brewing Company, makers of the acclaimed Fat Tire beer. Two parts bike rodeo and one part circus you can expect fire-jumping bike acts, cycling games, cruiser bike parade, live music, tasty eats and great beer, of course - and all proceeds benefit two great nonprofits: the SFBC & the Bay Area Ridge Trails Council!
Now we know what you are thinking...how much is this grand fete going to cost me? The answer is nothing! We are all about FREE! So....how is this a fundraiser? All proceeds from beer sales (4 bucks for a sixteen ouncer) will benefit the San Francisco Bike Coalition, and The Bay Area Ridge Trail Council. We'll bring the beer and you just bring your bike! (Valet bike parking provided--of course!)

OK Party People, this is where we get down. Not ONLY will we have the fine New Belgium Portfolio of beers to quench your thirst, but we will be featuring the music of Handsome Little Devils. Hold on to your handlebars for the local Yard Dogs Road Show and our own Todd Kundla' new and improved bike-based kinetic menagerie. But that's not all...look for a few aerialists, total self-sustainability if the form of an all solar/b100 biodiesel fueled event. Don't you worry, there are a few other tricks we're keeping tucked up our sleeves! The show this year will be great!
The music starts at noon.

But wait, there's more!
Meet us at 10:30am at Speedway Meadow for a rolling bike parade through the park, sponsored by the Bay Guardian and the SFBC. Decorate your bike, your body, or your friend's bike and body when they're not lookin'. It'll be a hoot and a holler, we promise. It's free to ride, but we are asking for a $5 dollar donation to the SFBC's efforts to build the Bike Network.
While at the park, look for opportunities to wrench on your bike, get your face painted, eat some good food, have a beer and join our cycling circus of sensory splendor.
This is one of the best events in the park in the summer to celebrate BIKES! Don't miss it.
