Like beer? Like bikes?

Of course, you do.

Now in its 19th season, New Belgium’s Tour de Fat is a glorious mixture of beer fest, bike show, concert, circus, and philanthropy event combined. Featuring killer brews, amazing views, a costume parade of bicycles and so, so much more, the thought of heading out to TDF on Saturday is pretty much the only thing getting me through the week right now, okay?

Headlined by alt-rock heroes Best Coast, other performances include Sedan Halen, The Handsome Little Devils, Daredevil Chicken, and KOLARS. Plus, as per New Belgium’s generous spirit, a portion of the proceeds will go to West Town Bikes, which strives to promote bicycling in Chicago with a focus on under-served populations.
