Crazy Bikes We were racing both weekends and missed the Tour de Fat, the self-descrbed philanthropic cycling circus. In Seattle, the event raised $5,019, drained 19 kegs, 100 cyclists paraded, and 1,000 people partied.

That stats from Portland aren’t up yet on New Belgium’s site, but you know that was a huge party, as seen in these Flickr photos from Bike Portland. BikePortland’s Jonathan Maus blogged it and noted that, “got started with the craziest bike parade I’ve ever done … closer to 400 showed up.” And bystanders were “awestruck at the scene.”

Indeed!

That looks like fun.  I wish they had one closer to the southeast but maybe this will be a good excuse to visit a friend in Seattle next year.

It’s great marketing for Fat Tire for sure. Where you from?
