DC Tour de Fat may have been the Tour de Rain... but it was not a wash out... it was a party!

the 2016 DC Tour de Fat was a wet one
May in DC has been rainy... record setting rain fall this May

it was wet at the Tour de Fat... it did rain intermittently 
but it was not a monsoon 
just a little more than misty

DC Tour de Fat 2016 was a Party!

as a representative of MORE: Mid Atlantic Off Road Enthusiasts I act as the team leader for Bike Valet at the DC Tour de Fat
it is one of the ways for me as a DC resident to contribute to the club that does so much for the sport I love


it is always harder to wrangle volunteers for this event than it should be
there was some conflicts this weekend with other events
Dirt Fest at Raystown Lake stole some of my die hard bike valet volunteers
I reached out to my DC Bike Family for help
and well

Yes Tour de Fat was Tou de Rain... Cheers to everyone that braved the rain especially the volunteers!

This event is a philanthropic event where 100% of the proceeds go back to the not for profits that volunteer and organize this circus of an event - great day for the DC bike community- a special thanks to all that signed up and showed up and worked the Bike Valet! DC Bike Family! Thanks New Belgium for hosting this amazing party in the Nation's Capital!

good times... good times for sure
so many fun people at this event
fun people volunteering
fun people hanging out
