I was at the one in San Francisco last year. It was a blast. Lots of people there. The thing is, I never did make it over to the beer garden. I was having too much fun hanging out in the "Cyclecide" area test riding all their custom bikes, and watching their show. Highly recommended.

Just went to the Tour de Fat this past weekend in San Francisco. It was awesome! I had so much fun in the Cyclecide area--the pedal ferris wheel was the best! Riding the tall bikes were really fun too--but, falling off is not so fun! Great time! I recommend it to anyone!

Tour de Fat is always a ton-o-fun. There is actually the vague possibility that my fire performance troupe will tour with them next year, and we performed with them when they were in St. Louis. We did a little tall bike jousting, drank ourselves some beer, and otherwise had a great time. The cyclecide folks weren't out this time though, at least not at the STL stop.

peace,
sam

Tour de Fat would be nice, though I'd just settle for being able to find their products.
