Tour de Fat, New Belgium Brewing Company’s traveling festival in celebration of bikes, rolled into Seattle on Saturday–and what a celebration it was! Around 4000 revelers, many in costume, participated in the festivities at Gasworks Park.
Tour de Fat brings bikes, beer and entertainment together to raise money for bicycle advocacy and education. This year’s Seattle event raised nearly $14,000, which will benefit the Washington Bikes and Bike Works.
A special thank you to the 60+ volunteers who helped the Bicycle Alliance run the beer garden and staff our info booth. You guys rock!
