FORT COLLINS, CO (BRAIN)—Now in its 14th year, New Belgium Brewing’s Tour de Fat bikes-and-beers festival will visit a dozen cities in 2013.
Tour de Fat celebrates the bicycle, showcases New Belgium beers, and provides eclectic and engaging entertainment for all. The event is free, but all proceeds from food and beer go to local biking groups. Tour de Fat has raised a total of more than $2 million for nonprofit organizations.
“Tour De Fat brings together entire communities to celebrate the bike as a vehicle for social change and good-time fun,” said Matt Kowal, New Belgium Brewing’s Tour de Fat Impresario. “This is a chance to see world-class entertainment in your own backyard with a beer in hand while you raise money for bike advocacy. That’s like a win-win-win situation.”
