Weekend Warriors

The long wait is over, and this weekend New Belgium's 'Tour de Fat' is scheduled to return to our fair city.  This event celebrates two of the greatest things in the world - beer and bikes.  Our plan is to meet down at Festival Gardens at 9am.  No fair driving your car.  I'm sure we will schedule a breakfast beforehand, so check back or give me a call.

This is a family friendly event as well.  The bike parade departs at 10am, but you need to get there early to register.  

Ride returns to Festival Gardens at 11am, where the kegs are tapped, and there are multiple live shows - music, juggling, puppet and otherwise.  If you believe in the over-used phrase 'Keep Austin Weird' - this is the event.

Costumes are HIGHLY ENCOURAGED.  I'm thinking we go with 'Cowboys and Indians'.

The Number One Texas Longhorns have graciously schedule their home game around this event - they play at 7pm.  So, no excuses.  Also, if you have extra tickets - I'm your buddy, right?

Here is the full lineup -
