What is Tour de Fat?Tour de Fat, presented by New Belgium Brewing Company, is a roving philanthropic beer, music, and bike festival. We partner with New Belgium Brewing Company, along with four DC-area bike non-profits (Black Women Bike DC, Fairfax Alliance for Better Bicycling, Phoenix Bikes, and Mid-Atlantic Off-Road Enthusiasts) to bring this event to town and make it the most fun thing you’ll do all summer. This super fun event helps us fund WABA’s bicycle advocacy and outreach efforts. On top of all that, the band Vintage Trouble is headlining! Plus a touring ensemble of artists, cirque performers, and general mayhemists will appear alongside local buskers and street performers. New this year: New Belgium Brewing will host a battle of the bands and the winner will get to play at Tour de Fat! Because we’re ramping up the activities, the event is ticketed.
