Tour de Fat

Originally uploaded by Nikki McLeod
We checked out the Tour de Fat this weekend. The Tour is an event sponsored by New Begium Brewing (makers of Fat Tire beer) and is a fun celebration of all things bike.

They have crazy, tricked out bikes (as seen to the right), beer, bands, beer, a bike parade, beer, a New Orleans-style funeral procession for a car, beer, The Sprockettes, beer, a slow ride competition, beer, bike giveaways (like, for people that are willing to trade their care for a bike), and did I mention beer?

There was a good crowd (I love the Portland, tattooed bike punk scene), despite the 100 degree, oven-like day. For respites, the kids ducked out to the Salmon Street Spring fountain.... and I drank beer (I highly recommend the Mothership Wit!).

You can see my set of photos from the day here and Nikki's photos here.
