For the Last couple of years, well since 2008 I have attended the Tour De Fat here in Tempe AZ. We usually meet at our friend’s then ride over to the actual event. This has become a little tradition among me, Talia and my friends The Tour Da Fat is a event organized by New Belgium Brewery the crafters of beers such as Fat Tire, Mothership Wit, Sunshine Wheat (my favorites) and others.
The event is usually packed, this year was no exception. Previous years they had a certain area fenced off for the event this year they opened it up to the whole Tempe beach park area. So it was good to see everyone with there bikes and generally having a great time. Yes, beer was consumed and yes I fell of a ledge but no injuries to me or friends. Next year maybe not so much beer.
Here are my pics from the Tempe AZ Tour De Fat. I hope you enjoy and if the event makes it to your area you should try to make it out.
