2022 Tempe Tour de Fat

THANK YOU for participating in this edition of the Tour de Fat! If you would like to be added to the volunteer list to be ‘in on the fun’ for next year email tourdefat@biketempe.org. There were a few items left in the lost and found and if you’re missing any pocket-sized things like a drivers license, wallet, or phone email us a description and we’ll take a look.

Come to the biggest cycling benefit event in the valley!

Along with costumes, which are always encouraged (just look at some photos), we’re also interested in seeing bike floats, tall bikes, tandems, cruisers, unicycles, trikes, lowriders, penny farthings… Basically, if it’s pedal powered, able to travel the entire parade route, and smaller than a compact car you should consider bringing it along to wow the crowd.

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

Get out your dancing shoes!

As we learn more about the lead-up and day’s schedule we’ll post it here along with multiple FB events.

Volunteer Sign Up is OPEN!
“Tempe has always been the biggest and best Tour de Fat. Thanks to New Belgium Brewery the local bike non-profits get at least a portion of their funding from this one yearly event. Let’s show everyone that we’re still the best and keep the tradition going!

New to volunteering, this is what you get!
Entrance into the park, two free New Belgium beverages, all the high-fives your little hands can handle, 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 (<3 team costumes)!

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