View Full Version : Tour de Fat!

I'm pretty sure that there will be a bunch of forum people attending and/or helping out at Tour de Fat at Yards Park tomorrow. I'll be volunteering with People for Bikes from 12 - 2 p.m. You might see some familiar faces at the bracelet booth too.

Hope to see some of you there! (Don't forget to bring your drivers license if you want to try any of the beers!)

We're still thinking about it. When does the bike ride start?

Registration for the bike parade starts at 10 a.m. and the parade starts at 11 a.m. I think there might be a full schedule on the WABA website.

Nice. Too bad the TdF page didn't have that info.

I plan to be there by 2:00.

We also plan to be there in a bit (2pm-ish). Should we even bother bringing bikes or just socialize? I have no idea if Yards Park is even bikeable from the VA side w/ a child trailer. (Originally I mistakenly thought this event was at Potomac Yard).

Didn't see anyone from the forum there, but passed Consularrider on the way there.

I was there, at the FABB/wristband camp tent, carding people. With Eminva as shift supervisor.

There were lots of great folks and fun costumes at the social ride. I've never ridden three miles quite so slowly, but everyone seemed to agree that it was a beautiful route through Capitol Hill, so it was nice to be moving at a proper gawking pace. And we rode right past my house!


The bike rodeo was also a blast!
