Tour de Fat

Tour de Fat is Coming to LA!
When:
October 23
Where: L.A. Historic Park

LACBC will be hosting a morning parade! Save the date and start planning out your costume! (stay tuned for more details)

New Belgium Brewing’s traveling celebration of all things bicycle rolls through 13 cities this year, raising money and sharing bike love. At each Tour de Fat stop, one person will help honor mankind’s greatest invention, the bicycle, by handing over their car keys and committing to a year of car-free living.

Tour de Fat is free to participants, but beer and merchandise proceeds go to local cycling non-profits. So far, Tour de Fat events have raised more than $1.25 million for philanthropy.

This year Tour de Fat in LA will be helping to raise funds for LACBC, CICLE and the Bicycle Kitchen.
