Tour de Fat

Another year, another Tour de Fat in Fort Collins. It gets bigger and bigger every year, with estimates of 8,000-15,000 people attending this edition.

I rode over with my neighbor Tim, met up with Leah and Faith, and encountered many friends over there despite the throng of people dressed up as non-humans. You can get a good sense of what it is all about by viewing the photos below, watching this video and reading the article in The Coloradoan.
