  • The numbers are in...

    The Clips of Faith and the Tour de Fat have both wrapped for the season, and the numbers are in. Clips raised $118,000 this year, and the Tour de Fat pulled in (almost) $500,000. That is (almost) $618,000 total raised (I know, I know, I'm a mathematician) for local non-profits in the communities that these shows happened in. That's a very successful year, to say the least. And we couldn't have done this without you, the fans and party goers, making these events so fun and so philanthropically wonderful. Here's the picture that says it all (well, not all of it, but most): So, thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, you made this event season fun and beneficial, and we will see you next year... xoxo, Juicebox...

  • So, I spilled beer on the guy who won the race; and other highlights from Independence Pass.

    Stage 4. One of the greatest days of my life.  I think I might have already said that this week, but this time I mean it. We decided to skip out on the start and finish of the race today and focus our sporting efforts on Independence Pass. So worth it, but a lot more on that later. First: The Video! It was shot and edited (the whole nine) by a new fellow named Larry. Simpsonic had to depart for home today so we brought in a replacement, and Larry isn't half bad. So let's let 'er rip: Last Night. Last night was fun, we went to another after party, gave away another cruiser, and drank a few beers. I got zero photos, zilch. The ...

  • Stage 2, the Tour de Fat meets the Tour of Colorado...

    Alright, so I understand this race is called the US Pro Cycling Challenge (USPCC), but for the sake of our title today the Tour of Colorado just sounded better... Today we have another video for you and then the awesome photos and words to follow. It was a complete whopper, so buckle your helmets... The Video! Then, Last Night And here we are, post stage 2 and today was a doozie. But before we jump right into the now, let's travel back to last night... Simpsonic and I put yesterday's post together, got it all wrapped up, then headed back down into the town of Telluride. At the bottom of the gondola is a great bar and eatery called The Oak. We had ...

  • Great News!

    Starting today me and my compatriot (Simpsonic) are on the road following the US pro Cycling Challenge. For the next 8 days you (the reader) are going to be soaked in the fun of this event. We are also changing up the format of this medium for that time as well. I'm going to be posting, Simpsonic is going to be posting, we'll both be posting at the same time... Things are going to get weird, and awesome. So for today, me and then him. Here it goes: Juicebox: Well we made it, all the way to Durango. It took us almost 9 hours in the New Belgium team car, but we did it. On the road is Simpsonic and myself (ol' Juicebox) and ...

  • The Tour de Fat just happened in Nashville, and it was awesome.

    Full disclosure on the Nashville Tour de Fat... I wasn't there (you know, like, physically), but I was thinking about it all day Friday and Saturday. Friday because the poor TdF carnies were busy unloading trucks of all the very fun, but very heavy stuff. And then Saturday, because that was show day. The Saturday morning of the show day I sent my TdF pals a text message letting them know I was thinking about them and that they should do their best to bring the greatness of the Tour de Fat to the good people of this world. And Nashville, from what I understand, was a really good time.  The TdFers' brought the fun, and the people of Nashville partied like only the people of the Music City ...

  • Senator Craft Goes to Washington (and other places too)...

    Michael Craft (pictured left) is the NPO and bicycle advocacy liaison for the Tour de Fat, and he is, generally, all about bikes (and a proud employee owner of New Belgium Brewing). And today he's the guest blogger here at NBB.com. Below is his re-cap of Bike Summit Season (that's a thing). Take it in, enjoy the good word of bicycle advocacy, and know that people like Craft are fighting the good fight for all of us lackeys who just like to ride bikes and not think about politics...  Take it away Craft––>
    It’s hard to believe that Bike Summit season is over and the Tour de Fat season is about to start, for me at least. This year’s Bike Summit season started off in Denver Colorado, where ...

  • The holidays are over, time to treat yourself...

    There are a few things that one must wait for; the doctor, good tomato plants, reliable NBC Thursday night programming, these things take patience. Another is treating yourself to a holiday gift. Just recently was the time of year that we must put others first, but now that's over now and we can start thinking of ways to spend money on ourselves. Here at NBB HQ we have a few things going that fit into that self-serving-shoe very well, and you can still reap a few holiday benefits to boot (more shoe pun). Idea number one: You bought some New Belgium Glassware for your friends and family this year but you neglected to stock your own cabinet. Wait no longer, The Glass That Gives is ...

  • Tour de Fat 2011 stats, beer, stuff.

    Everything that I used to know and believe and then have been subsequently taught against has proven to be true and beautiful. I will get to the Tour de Fat stuff here is a second, but first I have to talk to you about spaces. So in the olden' days when I would put keyboard to paper (as they say) I would always put one space after a period instead of two spaces, always. It was a writing rule that I got from the MLA style guide (which to me (at the time) was infallible). And then I went to college, a nice college, well regarded, Jesuit. And it was here that I took a religious studies class based in the New Testament. The class ...

  • Tour de Fat Wrap-Up...

    It's Tuesday and the 2011 Fort Collins Tour de Fat is nothing but a fond memory, but boy-howdy, the home town show was a doozie.  It all started with the bicycle parade, and (as always) it out did the year before.  There were people on bikes everywhere, I was on the sidelines watching it all go by and it took almost an hour for the whole thing to leave, people just kept coming (and coming), in fact the total number of people is said to have been hovering around 20,000 (that is one large group of costumed weirdos).  The Ryamiese Twins threw down the beats to get the whole thing started and eventually they ran out of things to rap about (that was pretty funny).  ...
