Thousands gathered on Saturday, Sept. 26 at Speedway Meadows in Golden Gate Park, when the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition hosted the 2009 Tour De Fat along with their co-sponsors the Bay Area Ridge Trails Council and the New Belgium Brewing Co. Music and other entertainment were provided by Sean Hayes and the Loyd Family Players drum corps., the March Fourth Marching Band, Squirm Burpee Circus and Honeymoon Cabaret. There was a bicycle parade, a mock funeral procession for the automobile, a raffle for a brand new, red “Fat Tire” bicycle and dozens of unique cycle-based designs riding around, though some were more successfully engineered than others.
