We all had a really great time yesterday. Thanks again to Matt Portell and all the volunteers and sponsors who made ride for reading such a success. I know this event will continue to grow!
It’s the last day to vote for us in the Nashville Scene’s Best of Nashville. You can follow this link and vote under the Goods & Services tab. We strive to give it our all here in the shop and will continue to be the best humans we can. There are several great bike shops in Nashville which is one of the many reasons that makes this town awesome. We’d be honored and humbled to receive your vote.
Holy Crap! Tour De Fat was a blast!
Over 600 riders were in the parade and 1500 attended the after party!
Thanks to our beautiful volunteers we raised $1750 for the Workshop!
From everyone at the Bike Shop and the Workshop, we’d like to thank Michael Craft, John Gartland, Aimee Gilchrist and Coleman Morris from New Belgium, Thomas Solinsky from Sound Forrest and all the rest of crew! We couldn’t have had a better time! You guys were awesome and very much welcome back to Nashville!
Looking forward to next year!
Ladies and Gentlemen, a message from New Belgium Brewery:
Yes folks, the Tour de Fat will once again be meandering and pandering through 13 U.S. cities spreading the good word about the positive societal offerings of the bicycle. Along with our exceptional ability to roust a city”s inner-cyclist, in 2011 we hope to drive our message even deeper by bringing you the biggest, most enjoyable traveling bike festival that we know of.
The Ride begins at 10 am July 9th at Centennial Park, but be there early to register.
Sounds fun. Right?
The Tour De Fat has been entertaining the masses and raising cycling awareness for the past few summers and this year we’re lucky enough to have this circus come to our city!
I’ve never had the pleasure of attending a Tour De Fat, but I’ve seen the pictures. It looks wild! Also, this will be the first time Metro has allowed the sale of alcohol in Centennial park!
Halcyon Bike and our volunteers will be busy in the Arts and Crafts booth making t-shirts(bring a shirt and we’ll silkscreen a crazy “good times” logo on it!) and jewelry to dress up the crowd. The money we make will go to the Bike Workshop at the Oasis Center!
New Belgium will also be raising money for our friends at Sound Forrest and Walk/Bike Nashville!
We recommend waking up and joining us for a good time this Saturday!
And yes, costumes are completely recommended/preferred!!
We may need some extra volunteers, so if you are interested contact Chris@halcyonbike.com.
Hope to see you there!
