Just thought I would remind each and every one of you that Tour de Fat returns to Durham next month on June 23 for the second year. In case you missed it last year or haven't even heard of it, here is the skinny:
New Belgium Brewery comes to town with an old timey traveling circus and interactive carnival for a one day event that kicks off with a morning bike parade around downtown Durham. Attending the carnival, watching shows, listening to bands and participating in the bike parade is FREE. The bike parade is 4 miles long and rode at a very comfortable pace escorted by the Durham Police Department. Costumes are enthusiastically encouraged.
Proceeds made from merchandise and BEER sales are donated to three local non-profits that work towards bicycling related goals. You do not have to participate in the bike parade to attend the carnival.
This should be even MORE awesome than 2011 with the recent news that New Belgium is building a second brewery, their first outside of Colorado - in Asheville, North Carolina.
For more info, check out my blog posts from last year with pre-Tour info and my report on how much fun was had at the event. Hope to see you there!
