Tour de Fat returns to Frisco

Daily News staff report

Frisco! Oil your bike chain and press the polyester, Tour de Fat is back for its sixth season of freewheelin’ fun.

Two parts bike rodeo and one part circus (with a healthy twist of carnie madness thrown in), Tour de Fat has been raising funds for cycling nonprofits and environmental advocacy groups since 2000.

This year the rubber hits the turf at Penninsula Recreation Area July 9 from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. After a costumed bike parade (read: rolling freak show) through the park, participants will return to the Pavilion for an afternoon of New Belgium beers, bands and the Art Bike Extravaganza.

For musical accompaniment, Denver’s own Cabaret Diosa and Devotchka will entertain. Side stage acts include the juggling genius of Peter Sweet, the amazing feats of Tobias the Mystic Man.

All proceeds from beer and merchandise sales will benefit Summit Fat Tire Society and Summit Flight For Life.

So, come on down and enjoy your friends and neighbors, celebrate the brilliant simplicity of your bike, and help raise money for the betterment of Frisco. Captain Ballyhoo and Maestro Mateo will be there – and they’re anything but square.
