Tour de Fat 2009

by bike and roll c... | 07/09/2009


The Tour de Fat will once again be meandering and pandering to Chicago spreading the good word about the positive societal offerings of the bicycle and donating to a local non-profit. Along with our exceptional ability to roust a city's inner-cyclist, in 2009 we hope to drive our message even deeper by bringing you a show of one lucky Chicagoan who will trade their car for a gloriously hand built commuter bicycle.

The event is this Saturday, July 11 at Palmer Square from 9am-4pm. Don't miss it! Check out this video from last year:
