Come to one of the biggest cycling events in the valley. New Belgium Brewing brings The Tour de Fat to Tempe Beach Part the first weekend in October every year. The Parade is from 11am to Noon, and the bike games, bands, shows and beer goes from Noon-5pm. Don’t miss it!
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. New Belgium does not keep any of the proceeds. The event is staffed by volunteers and all proceeds go directly to these non-profit groups.
Feel free to email email@example.com if you have questions, comments or volunteer updates on the Tempe Tour de Fat.
We would like to send out a huge thank you to all of our volunteers! We look forward to working with you again next year.
If you would like to be involved in the planning/running of the event for 2016 please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We will let you know when our first meeting is (usually early May).

The annual New Belgium Tour de Fat is on Saturday, October 3rd this year. 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.
Volunteers are an indispensable part of the success of Tour de Fat; they make sure everyone has a great time sharing their love of bicycles, beer and brotherhood. Thanks for being eager to stay informed, and we hope to see you there!
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 about 400 volunteers to ensure that the event goes smoothly. As a volunteer you’ll get 2 free beer tokens, a New Belgium volunteer-only water bottle and a coupon for $5 off a t-shirt at the souvenir booth. Plus, it will be fun – so sign up now!
