If you are reading this, there is a very good chance that you will never ride in a Tour de France. This is nothing to be ashamed of or even sad about. That's just the way it is.
Wouldn't it be cool if there was a tour you could participate in? One where nobody cared if you showed up without your bike and just drank beer all day? If by now you are saying, "That's crazy talk, Jeff!", you'd be absolutely wrong.
New Belgium Brewing Company's Tour de Fat rolls into Truckee, CA this Saturday, July 28th. The event kicks off with a quick bike ride through town, and then spends the rest of the day at the park. New Belgium will have a wide assortment of beers available on tap while you listen to music, watch side shows, or ride one of the many freak bikes.
If you can stand viewing a MY SPACE page, there is one for the Tour de Fat HERE.
If you are unable to attend, or are looking to see if the Tour comes closer to you, check HERE.
Here's a movie we took from the 2005 event.
Hope to see you there!
