Tempe Tour de Fat – Saturday Oct 4th 2014

The Tour de Fat is coming to Tempe again this year on Saturday, October 4th 2014 at Tempe Beach Park!

Come to one of the biggest cycling events in the valley. Don’t forget to dress up!

Tempe Bicycle Action Group, The Mountain Bike Association of Arizona, The Central Arizona Mountain Bike Patrol, and Bike Saviours Bicycle Collective, derive their main source of funding from the Tour de Fat.

    Last year I came across enormous quantity of bikers passing by. Many were dressed up in a weird manner. I was photographing them and wanted some more this year. Is this Tour de fat or it was something else? The morons running all such events are totally brain dead: where is the map? What time should I come in and where to stand to photograph the weirdos? The website provides no info whatsoever, 100% worthless. You only exercise your saddles and never heads. I clicked on calendar and, as everywhere else, it is practically blank. To top it all, like all NSA snoops, it gives me fascist orders that name and email is required: darlings – go to hell. I decide what required and what not, and in no event anyone else will decide it for me.

    Dear Flamebait Photographer,

    The _very_ first link in this post takes you to


    Once there you may then click “Tempe Arizona” (are you still with me?? I know this is complicated) to go to this URL:


    This page states the venue is at Tempe Beach Park, list a route map for the parade as well as an hourly breakdown of the festival events.

    This internet stuff can be tough sometimes; it’s ok. Hope you enjoy yourself! Ride Bikes!!

    The people going from fountain to fountain were probably doing the Summer Solstice Swimsuit Ride: http://www.biketempe.org/summer-solstice-swimsuit-ride-iii-sat-june-16-2-p-m/

    There’s no published route for it but we have had photographers meet us at one or two stops. Please get in touch with i...@biketempe.org if you’d like to help photograph stuff. We could certainly use the help!
