The funeral of a part of car culture today. Five-7,000 bicyclists gettin’ freaky on dressed up bikes, parading through town, blocking up traffic with the help of the local police. Really a cross between a critical mass rally and Halloween, the New Belgium sponsored Tour de Fat reminds us to ride our bikes when we can. And they say yes we can, in gospel style choruses and the funereal procession of the proverbial Escalade, life led by a dark and soulful marching band.
