The 2012 Tempe Tour de Fat was our biggest yet. THANK YOU to everyone who attended! And thanks especially to the 350+ volunteers that made the event possible, YOU ROCK!
This year we raised over $87,000 for local Arizona non-profits like TBAG, Bike Saviours, and the Mountain Bike Association of Arizona. This was the largest amount raised of any Tour de Fat stop, including New Belgium’s home town of Ft Collins!
New Belgium also had a record setting Tour de Fat season in 2012, raising over $500,000 in 15 cities across the country. This is huge for cycling non-profits, thanks New Belgium for all that you do to make cycling more fun, safer, and more popular!
Some stats on the 2012 Tempe event:

Money Raised: $87,216
