The Tour de Fat Gets A Taker

By Chuck Sudo in Miscellaneous on Jun 17, 2008 2:27PM

New Belgium Brewing's Tour de Fat is only four days away. Already, someone's decided to trade in his vehicle for a bike and it's a longtime Chicagoist reader. Matter of fact, it's someone we'd thought would do it.

Joe M500 is taking the plunge Saturday, trading in his 2001 Jeep Cherokee for one of the bikes New Belgium is offering at the Tour de Fat. Having participated in Critical Mass rides and hung out with M500, we can assure you this is not a lark. You can join him by heading to Palmer Square Park Saturday.
