Tour de Fat

Virtual Tour de Fat 2020

In case you haven’t heard, Tour de Fat, New Belgium Brewing’s long standing tradition of bikes, beers and bemusement will celebrate responsibly in 2020. Based on recent CDC health advice, the difficult decision was made to postpone Tour de Fat. Tour de Fat will continue online by encouraging communities to celebrate with the classic carnies, clowns and cyclists of all ages with online contests, challenges and fundraising efforts to support local bicycle nonprofits.  In partnership with master performers Daredevil Chickens and Sedan Halen, Tour de Fat will present several online contests and challenges. The online contests include a slow ride bicycle challenge, a costume contest and a dance contest. Participants will have the opportunity to win prizes including a limited edition 2020 New Belgium Brewing Fat Tire Cruiser Bicycle. To participate in upcoming online contests and activations, follow @tourdefat on Instagram. Be sure to follow us on Instagram (@fcbikecoop) and on Facebook to see our contest entries and more details!

New Belgium and Tour de Fat will continue support of nonprofit partners by donating matching funds up to $10,000 per nonprofit organization to support their initiatives. We are so appreciative of all that New Belgium Brewing and Tour de Fat has done for us over the years, and that isn’t any different this year! That means we need your help to reach our fundraising goals for this event.
