Goodbye Clips Film+Beer, Hello Tour de Fat
The expansion of Tour de Fat is bittersweet since it is replacing the Clips Film+Beer Tour that had a great six-year run here in Kansas City. Clips was the highlight of the year for many of BikeWalkKC’s members, volunteers, and supporters. Our KC event grew to be one of the biggest in country, and the folks from New Belgium loved the energy of the crowds here and the dedication of our volunteers. Over the years, Clips raised more than $70,000 for bike advocacy and education. It was one of the key ingredients to BikeWalkKC’s startup and quick growth to where we are today.
We will always be grateful the amazing folks at New Belgium for leading the way to support bike advocacy in Kansas City and across the United States. Now we look forward to building Kansas City’s Tour de Fat into an awesome event that keeps supporting bike advocacy for years to come. Please stay tuned over the next few months to learn more about Tour de Fat and the opportunities for volunteering, biking, and have a ton of fun!
