Grab your friends, family and neighbors and join us for a great time! In less than 2 weeks, New Belgium Brewing is bringing their famous Tour de Fat back to Durham! In Tour de Fat’s 3rd visit to Durham- let’s all work to make it the biggest and best showing to date! Join Triangle Spokes Group to kick off the morning with a bike parade starting at 11Am from Diamond View Park at the American Tobacco Campus.  Registration for the Parade starts at 10AM and is open to all skill levels and colorful costumes are encouraged!  Following the Parade, the park will heat up with lots of live music, skits, local food and more!

All proceeds from the event benefit 3 local bike organizations – the NC Active Transportation Alliance, Triangle Spokes Group, and the Durham Bike Co-Op!

The Bike Parade is free with donations being accepted.  There is also the chance to score some limited edition Tour de Fat swag!!

New Belgium’s Tour de Fat Facebook page is fun to follow along from some of the fun from some of the other 12 cities they are hitting this year and to catch the flavor of the event.   Here is the official 2013 Press Release.
