Tour de Fat Bicycle Parade

Pre-registration for the bicycle parade is now closed, but don't worry! You can register on site at the Yards Park on Saturday June 1 between 10:00 and 11:00am. We are expecting crowds of people, so show up early! Please bring $5 in chash for your 'suggested' donation to participate in the parade. All parade proceeds go toward making bicycling better in the greater Washington, DC area. 

What: A Bicycle Parade!

Date: Saturday, June 1st

Time: Ride check-in and on-site registration from 10-11am; Parade begins at 11am

Location: Yards Park  (look for us along Water St SE between 3rd and 4th Sts SE)

What better way to kick off Tour de Fat than with a humongous bicycle parade.

The parade is a family friendly event. WABA will provide ride marshals to help guide parade participants along the route. Roads will not be closed so we will be following all traffic laws and respecting other vehicles and traffic.

Costumes are strongly encouraged! Think tutu's, sparkles, clown wigs, bright colors, goofy hats. And don't forget to decorate your bicycle too!

Rider check-in and day-of registration goes from 10:00am to 11:00am on Saturday, June 1. The parade will depart from Yards Park at 11:00am and do a leisurely, family friends pace around the neighborhood. (The route will be less than 5 miles.) And once we return to the festival at Noon, the party will really get under way as music flows from the stages and cold beers are poured.
