Tempe Tour de Fat

TdF Banner 2017Come to one of the biggest cycling events in the valley. New Belgium Brewing brings The Tour de Fat to Tempe Beach Park the first weekend in October every year.

The Parade is from 11am to Noon.  Yes!! There is a parade for 2017.

Then, Join us on Mill Ave from 11am-5pm, where we have the street closed off for locally sponsored biking activities, games and fundraisers.

The concert is from 5-9 at Tempe Beach Park.  Make sure you buy a beer at the concert.  All beer proceeds go to local non-profit groups.

Tempe Bicycle Action Group, The Mountain Bike Association of Arizona, The Central Arizona Mountain Bike Patrol, and Bike Saviours Bicycle Collective, are the benefitting non-profits groups for the Tour de Fat.  The event is staffed by volunteers and all proceeds go directly to these non-profit groups.

Feel free to email tourdefat@biketempe.org if you have questions, comments or volunteer updates on the Tempe Tour de Fat.

There are several changes this year including a later start time, which allows us to do a bunch of free and fun local stuff before the main concert. We will still have your favorite in-event volunteer position (beer, tokens/ID) but will also have several new positions available for the free local events from 12-4, run by and for the TdF benefiting non-profits.

As always, get two free New Belgium beverages when you volunteer and a little something special from the volunteer organizations. Various positions and shifts available on a first-come first-served basis. Grab your friends and form a team of volunteers to spread the love!

To create a volunteer team, click the above registration link and add your new team name as part of the registration.  Your team name will automatically show up for everyone else after you register.

  1. Justin,

    Tempe Bicycle Action Group is one of the local nonprofits that benefits from Tour de Fat (the others are Bike Saviours, Mountain Bike Association of Arizona, and Central Arizona Mountain Bike Patrol). As beneficiaries of New Belgium Brewery’s awesome event, we do not schedule the event (or any of the details surrounding the event). We just help out with volunteer coordination and cleanup. Check out http://www.newbelgium.com/Events/tour-de-fat/home for the latest information on the plans for this year.
