New Belgium Brewing Company's Tour de Fat
Golden Gate Park
Saturday Sept 22!!
Tour de Fat, an annual celebration of all things Bicycle, pedaled back into San Francisco for its 10th year benefitting the Bay Area Ridge Trail Council. Sponsored by New Belgium Brewing Company, the Tour is one of the Council’s largest fundraisers; 10 years of Touring the Bay Area has now raised over $180,000 for the Council and our Tour partners San Francisco Bicycle Coalition. The Tour is a free, family-friendly event with Bicycle Parade donations, Merchandise, and Beer sales benefitting these 2 great non-profits.
The 2012 Tour was the largest and best yet. Perfect weather brought over 4000 attendees out, to ride in the Bicycle Parade, sing in the Port-a-oke (Karaoke in a Port-a-Potty), play the numerous games around the festival, compete in the Slow Ride, enjoy great music, riotus comedy, tasty New Belgium brews and the Park. Over 200 volunteers supported the Tour, from setting up to packing up the party furniture. After expenses, the 2012 Tour netted over $30,000, for these 2 great non-profits, the most to date!
The Ridge Trail Council sends our deep appreciation and gratitude to New Belgiumfor their years of support, and the Bicycle Coalition for their partnership, and all the amazing volunteers who made the show possiblel
