WHAT: New Belgium’s Tour de Fat – Minneapolis

WHEN: Saturday, July 27, 2013, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

WHERE: Loring Park, 1382 Willow Street, Minneapolis 55403

Tour de Fat is a daylong festival in the park that celebrates the bicycle, showcases New Belgium beers and provides eclectic and engaging entertainment for all. It’s a free event, but all proceeds from beer sales go to local nonprofits. In Minneapolis the benefiting nonprofits are Midtown Greenway Coalition, Minnesota Off Road Cycling, Minneapolis Off Road Cycling and Bicycle Alliance of Minnesota.

Join us at Loring Park for the pinnacle of Tour de Fat, the ceremonious car-for-bike swap. At each of the 15 Tour de Fat stops, one person will become the center of the show as he or she gets up on stage, hands over their car keys, and pledges to live one year car-free. Applications are still being accepted for Car-for-Bike Swappers for Minneapolis! If you are interested in being the center of the show for this amazing cause, click on this link for more information:
