Thanks to Tempe Bicycle Action Group (TBAG), you can do more than just ride around and drink beer during Tour de Fat.
The non-profit organization is looking for folks to volunteer during the beer-and-bicycle fest that docks at Tempe Beach Park on Saturday, October 9.
Givers of their precious time will be hooked up with a free Tour de Fat shirt as well as complimentary beer tokens.
As always, the 13-western-city tour will feature a ride, bicycle-centric games, and New Belgium brewski. Local bicycle co-ops, including TBAG and Bike Saviours, score most of their annual funding from the event.
