New Belgium Invites One Washington, D.C. Role Model to Give Up Their Vehicle at Tour de Fat:
Saturday, May 30


Don’t miss a day full of bikes, beer and bemusement!
 
Ft. Collins, Colo., May 27, 2015 – New Belgium Brewing’s traveling carnival celebrating man’s greatest creation, the bicycle, is returning to Washington, D.C. on May 30. The festivities kick off in Yards Park and New Belgium is still seeking one brave soul to swap their car keys for a bicycle helmet and live car-free for a full year.
 
The role model car-for-bike swapper is awarded a stipend to buy his or her own commuter bike. Swappers are chosen after submitting an application describing why they are ready to give up their vehicle for the gift of two wheels. Submit your video here: NewBelgium.com/Events/Tour-de-Fat/CarTrader.
 
The Washington, D.C. stop kicks off the 2015 season of Tour de Fat and will feature eclectic entertainment, yo-yo performances and even vaudeville acts. Everyone 21 and older is invited to sample new and classic favorites from New Belgium including the brewery’s flagship brew, Fat Tire, New Belgium’s latest year-round offering, Slow Ride Session IPA, and selections from the acclaimed Lips of Faith series.
 
Tour de Fat is free to participants, but beer and merchandise proceeds from the Washington, D.C. stop will go to:
Washington Area Bicyclist Association 
Black Women Bike DC 
Fairfax Advocates for Better Bicycling 
Mid-Atlantic Off-Road Enthusiasts 
Phoenix Bikes
 
Last year, the Washington, D.C. Tour de Fat stop had approximately 7,000 attendees and raised more than $57,000 for local non-profits.
