Tour de Fat is a week away!

Tour de Fat is almost here! The free bike party starts at 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 31 at Yards Park in DC. Join hundreds of cyclists for a day of bike fun, beer, and food. The event is a major fundraiser for FABB.

Activities include the infamous Bike Pit where riders try out various trick bikes, the Slow Ride Race, le Tigre tent, and great music on two stages.

We still need some help at our ID/Wristband station. FABB volunteers receive 2 beer tokens and a Tour de Fat t-shirt. Let me know if you can help.

From the Tour de Fat Facebook page:
We're back in DC and it's still free! But, if you donate through Eventbrite, you'll be benefitting your local DC nonprofits AND receive some sweet Tour de Fat schwag**.

This year marks the 15th season for Tour de Fat, which will travel to 10 cities across the U.S. These day-long festivities are free in every city, but the proceeds from beer sales and pre-registration donations go to local non-profits.

Since its inception, Tour de Fat has raised more than $3 million, and raised $500,000 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.

**A city-specific 2014 Tour de Fat license plate or frog light included with any donation of at least $5.
