Working Bikes and our power-generating bike machines will be at this year’s Tour de Fat on Saturday, July 13 in Chicago’s Palmer Square.

Tour de Fat is a traveling fundraiser and festival held by New Belgium Brewing Company in 12 cities across the U.S. Gather up your friends, family, and neighbors and come enjoy eclectic entertainment and stellar beer. The event is free, but all proceeds from beer, merchandise sales, and donations from parade participants go to our friends at West Town Bikes.

The day kicks off with a giant bicycle parade at 11:00am, designed for people of all skill levels; all are welcome and colorful costumes are encouraged. For the rest of the afternoon, the stages heat up with world-class acts, including Reggie Watts and Mucca Pazza. Parade registration starts at 10:00am, with events winding down at 5:00pm.
