You'll have to spend the day in one of three cities to attend a Tour de Fat bicycle fundraiser this year. In its 20th year, New Belgium Brewery has cut the number of events in half to three events for 2019. It overexpanded to 33 cities in 2017, so it cut back to six last year.
You can count on attending a Tour de Fat in the two cities where New Belgium operates breweries: Fort Collins CO on Saturday, Aug. 31; and Asheville NC on Saturday, Sept. 21. A third Tour de Fat is planned for Tempe AZ on Saturday, Oct. 5.
The events will be free this year; last year New Belgium charged admission for the first time.
