Congratulations, DC-area bicyclists, friends and merrymakers – you helped contribute to the most successful Inaugural Tour de Fat in New Belgium Brewing history!
DC’s record-breaking stats
ATTENDANCE: 2,500 bicycle and beer enthusiasts; 331 participated in the bike parade
MONEY RAISED: $20,910
WABA extends a warm and emphatic Thank You to New Belgium Brewing Company, and all the New Belgium staff for bringing their grand festival through our city and supporting WABA and local bike advocacy groups across the country.
We’d also like to thank our event partners: The Mid-Atlantic Off-Road Enthusiasts (MORE), Fairfax Advocates for Better Bicycling (FABB) and Black Women Bike DC (BWBDC), as well as WABA staff and volunteers who helped run the show.
And of course the day would not have been a success without all of you folks who came costumed (or otherwise) to enjoy a day full of raucous and wholesome fun. We’ll see you and everyone you know next year!
Now hurry and check out the event photos:
