New Belgium (http://www.newbelgium.com/home.aspx) has invited us to the 14th annual Bike awareness festival The Tour De Fat (http://www.newbelgium.com/events/tour-de-fat.aspx)!

A $5 donation is suggested for the parade and 16 ounce beers will be sold for $5. The event is free but all proceeds from beer and merchandise sales, as well as donations will go to San Francisco bicycle coalition (http://www.sfbike.org/) and Bay Area Ridge trail council (http://www.ridgetrail.org/). This year's goal is to raise $60,000

Tour De Fat Begins with a giant bicycle parade at 11:00 AM that weaves through city streets. Each parade rout is designed for people of all skill levels; everyone is welcome and colorful costumes are encouraged. For the rest of the afternoon the stages heat up with world class acts.
