New Belgian Brewery’s Tour de Fat: Costumed bike parades may be the stuff of childhood, but this one — benefitting the Mountain Bike Association of Arizona, the Tempe Bicyle Action Group and Bike Saviours — is just for grown-ups. There will be food, entertainment, bike contests and a “car-for-bike” swap, where one person will donate their car to charity in exchange for a commuter bike.
DETAILS >> 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 6. Tempe Beach Park, 54 W. Rio Salado Parkway, Tempe. Free; $5 suggested donation for bike parade; $5 for beer. www.newbelgium.com/events/tour-de-fat.aspx.
