Of Beer and Bicycles: Fat for the Whole Family

Tour de Fat event poster
The Tour de Fat comes to Seattle--tomorrow at Gas Works Park!
Yes folks, the Tour de Fat will once again be meandering and pandering through 13 western 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 2010 we hope to drive our message even deeper by bringing you the biggest, most enjoyable traveling bike festival that we know of.
New Belgium Brewing makes many fine brews, including the preferred house beer here at Chez Leyerle--Fat Tire Ale. Not only is the beer excellent, but it is great to support a brewery that takes sustainability seriously.

The Tour de Fat is "a Bicycle Festival with beer, not the other way around" but fortunately fine beverages will be available.

The fun officially begins at 10:00 tomorrow, July 31, but if the past is a good guide, it would be smart to arrive quite a bit earlier than that. The entertainments (apart from the attendees themselves!) are scheduled to include musicians, comedic couples, vaudevillians, and perhaps some rental zombies. If I still had a unicycle I would ride it there, although I'm not sure how well they attach to the front of the Metro buses...
