New Belgium is bringing back Tour de Fat for its 18th year and this year’s celebration of biking music and beer will be bigger and bolder than ever before. Expanding the event from 9 participating cities to a 33-stop format, the tour season kicks off on May 20 in Asheville, NC and will end on October 7 in Tempe, AZ. “Fat Tire presents Tour de Fat” has pulled out all the stops with additional cities and world-class entertainment such as The Roots, Third Eye Blind, AWOLNATION, Skyler Grey, Michael Franti & Spearhead, X-Ambassadors and much more.
On a sunny summer Saturday, it’s only 8am and the mercury is already over 80 degrees; today is going to be a hot one. I dug into the bowels of my closet to find whatever mismatch of clothing and/or flair I could get my hands on, grabbed a backpack full of water, sunscreen, and PBR and hopped on my bike. This, my friends, is the beginning ritual for thousands of beer enthused, fun lovers all around the country when New Belgium Brewery’s Tour De Fat rolls into town.
