This year marks the 17th season for Tour de Fat, which will travel to 9 cities across the U.S. This day-long festival is free, but the proceeds from beer sales go to local non-profits.
Since its inception, Tour de Fat has raised more than $4 million, and raised over $600,000 last year alone. A celebration of bike culture and advocacy, the Tour de Fat features eclectic entertainment, from musical acts to yo-yo performers, bike contests and even vaudeville acts.
This year will also include some brewing education and feature a “Bicycle Revival” to inspire festival-goers to believe in the power of two-wheeled transportation.
