Hey everybody, the annual New Belgium Tour de Fat is coming up soon, on Saturday, October 9th this year. The event is run entirely by volunteers and all proceeds go directly to the Tempe Bicycle Action Group, Bike Saviours Bicycle Collective, the Mountain Bike Association of Arizona, and the Central Arizona Mountain Bike Patrol.

The event in Tempe is one of the largest on New Belgium’s tour. We drew over 10,000 people last year, and we need to have enough volunteers to ensure that the event goes smoothly. Each volunteer will receive:

Free beer tokens
A volunteer t-shirt
Access to an area set aside for volunteers
and that warm snuggly feeling you get from helping people celebrate bikes

It will be awesome!

To sign up to volunteer, go to: http://www.biketempe.org/events/tour-de-fat/.

NEW! We are especially looking for groups of people to sign up as TEAMS. Teams will work together at a station whenever possible, and will be recognized on a volunteer appreciation banner. Team theme costumes are strongly encouraged, and there will be a prize awarded for the best team costume. If you would like to create a team and be a Team Leader, go to: http://www.biketempe.org/events/tempe-tour-de-fat-2010-team-signup/

Please help to spread the word!

It’s that time again! Every month, your friends here at TBAG get together and head out on the town for a “handlebar happy hour”, bike night at the Drive-In, “moustache rides” or whatever else we can cook up. It’s an awesome way to meet people, hang out at cool places, and ride bikes!

This month, we’re going to a variety of places around south Scottsdale. Just be there at Tempe Beach Park at 7:30 tomorrow and every 3rd Friday!

Note: We hit different places throughout the night. If you can’t make it at the start, give us a heads up and we’ll let you know where we’re headed to hook up! Call or Text 214 444 TBAG (8224)
