BikeWalk NC is happy to announce that the 2016 Tour de Fat celebration in Durham, NC on June 25 was a tremendous success. Sponsored by New Belgium Brewing Company, the Tour de Fat is an annual beer and bicycle festival that travels to various locations around the country. Durham’s Tour event is the biggest fundraiser for BikeWalk NC; proceeds from the event benefit BWNC, Triangle Spokes Group, and the Durham Bike Co-op.
BikeWalk NC would like to thank New Belgium, the many volunteers (over 200!) and other bicycling organizations, and everyone who attended the event for helping to make the 2016 Tour de Fat stop in Durham one of the most memorable to date.
