We couldnât have asked for a better start to the 2009 season.
The weather was perfect, the Tour de Fat carnies were a well-oiled machine, and Chicagoans came out in force.
Last year we had 1500 people come out and raise $12,000 for West Town Bikes. This year, we had 3,000 people, raising more than $20,000 (we're still counting)! Waste diversion also went from 82% diverted from the landfill to 91%.
And Paul bid farewell to his Subaru in exchange for the far superior Black Sheep commuter bike.
Ride On Chicago!
