BOISE -- It's a chance to dress kind of funky, get on your bicycle, and ride while listening to bands and supporting the new line of New Belgium beers. Tour de Fat hit Boise on Saturday with a bike parade that made it's way through city streets.

Of course, costumes for riders were encouraged.

This is the 14th year that Tour de Fat has come to Boise, and all proceeds from Saturday's beer sales will be donated to local nonprofit organizations.

"It's an annual event for people who like to dress up weird and ride funny bikes." said participant Eric Johnson.

In Boise, the benefiting nonprofits are Southwest Idaho Mountain Biking Association, Treasure Valley Cycling Alliance and Boise Bike Project. Over its course, the Tour de Fat has raised more than two-million-dollars for nonprofit organizations.
