Event:    New Belgium Brewing Fat Tire Classic - Bicycles
Location: Waterloo Park, Austin  Texas
Description: Being somewhat disgusted with the jeep at this point due to the flooding gremlin, after I got home from the Manor Parade today I loaded the Colson balloon tire bike in the truck and headed to Waterloo Park for the New Belgium Brewing Company Fat Tire Classic.  This event is a 7 city tour to promote their beers and ales while at the same time promoting the slower life of the classic balloon tire cruiser bicycles.  Having just restored a balloon tire bike, this was an opportunity to show it off again.  I wore my WWII HBT coveralls, mechanics cap and map case.  Boy was I the hit of the event.  The promotions manager gave me an event t-shirt and snapped my picture for their web site.  The event also promoted the Yellow Bicycle Project.  Some weird folks there but good beer...
