Become a local celebrity this Oct. 6 during the Tour de Fat at Tempe Beach Park by participating in the car-for-bike swap! One lucky contestant will get to turn over their keys – and the gas-guzzlng, four-wheeled lifestyle on stage during the Tour de Fat in front of thousands!

Simply tell your story to New Belgium Brewing Company via video, photos or prose on their Tempe Tour de Fat Facebook event page and you could be the next to win!

Last year, Phoenix resident Nicole Underwood was the lucky winner, and she said she’s never been so happy.

“Giving away my car was liberating,” Nicole said. “I was so excited when the tow truck pulled up … I was happy to be rid of it.”

Trading in her old four-wheeled lifestyle for a two-wheeled one was a great way not only to become healthier, but to be more connected to her community, Nicole said.

But don’t take our word for it! See her tell her story yourself on YouTube. Click here for her story about her transition.

Want to see what an award-winning video looks like? Check out Nicole’s original submission here..

Submit your stories as soon as possible! This year, the car swap winner will get a bike from a local bike shop of their choosing.

If you are affiliated with local shops and want to be sure your shop is involved contact info@biketempe.org. For more information about the car-for-bike swap, visit www.newbelgium.com.

As you know, the event is run 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 and others.

Iron your tutu. Fluff up your afro wig. And starch the white straps that pass as an outfit in the Fifth Element. It’s nearly time for the Tempe Tour de Fat!

This year TBAG and friends will be giving you an excuse to pre-funk for more than week before one of the nation’s greatest cycling events – The Tempe Tour de Fat.

Starting Sept. 24 and for a solid week before the Oct. 6 Tour de Fat, enjoy everything from bike safety events to bike rides, bike bar crawls, New Belgium specials, and bike fundraisers.

So block out the the later half of September, folks. It’s a TBAG takeover.

Don’t forget, if you’re sporting your TBAG, Bike Saviours, or MBAA gear, you’re going to be treated like family at ALL events. Or at least, you’ll get a chance to score some sweet swag.

For event details watch your email, stay tuned to biketempe.org, and follow the TBAG Facebook Page.
