[maxgallery name=”new-belgium-brewery-tour-de-fat-san-francisco-2015-heros”]Step right up! Be amazed, bewildered, amused by the weird, wonderful, and uh … a tad bit creepy. Interact with oddities such as freakish human powered vehicles that could be perceived as bicycles. Close your children’s eyes as semi-nude bizarrely dressed entertainers dazzle audiences with their wit and charm. Get buzzed by a mélange of bitter brews. And, most importantly, spread the joys of bicycling and help rid our world of those dirty global warming inducing automobiles. Welcome to Tour De Fat!
New Belgium Brewing Company’s traveling extravaganza and menagerie rolled into town recently to delight San Franciscans, fundraise for local charities, and trade people’s cars for bicycles. Following a grand bicycle parade, bicyclist enthusiasts and people of all ranks, statuses, and vocations were welcome to Golden Gate Park’s Lindley Meadow, where they entertained themselves with larger than life games, curious contraptions, live shows, and a brewski or two. All proceeds from the annual event went to local community groups SF Bicycle Coalition and Bay Area Ridge Trail Council.[maxgallery name=”new-belgium-brewery-tour-de-fat-san-francisco-2015-all”]
