Saturday morning we walked off a plane at SD International. By lunch we were in the midst of the crazyness that is New Belgium’s Tour De Fat. Described as “Beer, Bikes and Bemusement” the Tour is part beer fest, part pro-Bike/pro-Earth fest, part traveling carnie show. All the money raised at this years SD fest goes to support SD Mountain Biking Association and SD Bike Coalition. Thanks for keeping the money local New Belgium.

Tour de Fat is New Belgium Brewing’s traveling celebration of all things bicycle, honoring humankind’s greatest invention. -newbelgium.com

As always, it was blazing hot, but the crowd didn’t care. It looked like more bikers rode than ever. Take a look at the bikes from this years Tour. Click any image to enlarge slideshow.

Check back later this week for a photo recap of the fest itself!
