Tour de Fat!

The Tour de Fat is Tour de Fun!

For 15 years, New Belgium Brewery has sponsored the annual Tour de Fat parade and celebration of all things cycling. For a parade that could easily go down into the debauchery hall of fame, the 20,000 cyclists keep things cool, calm, fun and family-friendly.

The Tour de Fat is traditionally the Saturday before Labor Day. It would make a great event to watch or participate in! Costumes are easy, (butterflies and dragonflies are very popular) and we have guest bikes! We can ride from Waterford to the starting line. The parade is an easy 3-mile loop around Old Town. OK, sometimes the parade slows and you have to walk, but that’s part of the fun!

Rather than stand in line for free beer at the New Belgium tents, we opt for walking two blocks to a pub to enjoy air-conditioning and escape the crowds.
