2016 “Tour de Fat” Bike & Beer Festival

By San Francisco Limousine Specialist on September 16, 2016

New Belgium Brewing Company is known throughout the country for their wide range of beers.  They are also widely celebrated for their extra curricular (or extra beericular) activities, specifically the Tour de Fat.  For those of you who don’t know, the Tour de Fat is a wandering jubilee that New Belgium (whose flagship beer is Fat Tire) puts on every year, one that travels throughout the country to cities like Chicago, Boise, Fort Collins, and (of course) San Francisco.  The Tour de Fat is a magnificent chance for you to celebrate two of the greatest achievements known to humanity: bikes and beer.

The idea springs out of a desire to raise participation in a classic and sustainable form of transportation as well as enjoy delicious beer, great music, and the company of others who share the vision of a green and lush future.  What makes this particular ride exciting is that all participants are encouraged to dress in zany costumes for a bike parade that leads to a magnificent fashion show and live music by some of the nation’s most celebrated musicians.

This year, the full list of activities associated with the Tour de Fat include:

  • Live music by Esmé Patterson

  • A game show/competition where the contestants compete for a chance to win a shiny 2016 New Belgium Bicycle.

  • Comedian Dick Towers

  • A YoYo Show

  • The opportunity to trade your car in for a bicycle.

  • Live performances of Fantasy Quest

  • Live music by Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds

  • Live music by Dr. Dog.

This is going to be a helluva day, and with ticket prices sitting at only $10 this is not something that you need or want to miss.  If the price is something you feel inclined to grumble about (never mind that it is giving you access to any number of other events that would alone cost over than $10, such as a Dr. Dog concert) think about this: a large portion of each ticket price goes towards supporting a local non-profit organization.  Since when has riding a bike and drinking a beer ever felt this constructive?

The Tour de Fat will take place at noon on Saturday, September 17th, at Lindley Meadow in Golden Gate Park.
