Yes folks, the Tour de Fat will once again be meandering and pandering through 13 U.S. cities spreading the good word about the positive societal offerings of the bicycle. Along with our exceptional ability to roust a city’s inner-cyclist, in 2011 we hope to drive our message even deeper by bringing you the biggest, most enjoyable traveling bike festival that we know of.


The Ride begins at 10 am at Palmer Square, but be there early to register.

Stay and enjoy the fun after the ride with music and theatrics by Squirm Burpee CircusDovekinsDaredevil Chicken ClubMucca Pazza and Free Energy.

This ballyhoo of good times will be benefitting West Town Bikes.

Stay tuned to the TdF Facebook page for updates and further details.

For reasons beyond me, I've never attended one of these.

So what is this parade about? Is is like a neighborhood CM?Do people get dressed up? Why do I have to register?
