It’s back! Tour de Fat, the greatest little show on earth, is about to embark on a six-city bonanza of bikes, beers and philanthropic fun. Entering its 19th season, the Tour de Fat has raised more than $5 million dollars for local bike non-profits since its inception. This year combines many favorite past ensemble acts like Sedan Halen, The Handsome Little Devils, Daredevil Chicken, and KOLARS – plus new and emerging musical talent from around the country. It’s a celebration of great beer, good people, and humankind’s most wonderful invention – the bicycle!
Come celebrate self-propelled, two-wheel travel and dress up as your alter ego while raising money for your hometown cycling community — hit the links below to see what acts are playing at a show near you.
So, get your costume ready. It’s time to shift gears and get weird.
