Tour de Fat Milwaukee

New Belgium’s Tour de Fat made a stop on its journey in Milwaukee on Saturday, at a new location in McKinley Park on Lake Michigan. Fortunately for me, this new spot is right along my running and biking route off the Oak Leaf Trail.

In the past I’ve volunteered to pour beers at the fundraiser for the Bicycle Federation of Wisconsin, but this year I took a low-key approach and ran my two-year-old daughter in her stroller. Somehow she managed to stay sleeping through the rockabilly, hip hop and other bands and the spectacle of the bike-for-car trade. She’ll appreciate it more when she’s older.

Highlights for me included the rideable art corral, meeting New Belgium’s new Madison ranger James Marks and seeing friends and local cyclists dressed up in costume. Here’s a gallery of photos I snapped along with Instagram photos I received permission to post here. [Click on thumbnails for larger images]
