Best Vehicular Sacrifice 

Tour de Fat

Editors' Picks

The gods demand a sacrifice. Like in days of yore, each year a sacrificial victim is rolled into public, where it is briefly mourned before it meets its end in front of a rowdy crowd. But rather than being terribly un-PC and rounding up a virgin, we sacrifice a car. For eight years running, Boise has been one of 11 cities to host New Belgium Brewing's Tour de Fat, a traveling celebration of everything bike. And each year, the bike gods demand the sacrifice of a car. The rest of us get to enjoy a day full of fun and bicycle-oriented frolicking with local biking groups taking home the proceeds, which in turn, are put back into area bike trails and projects. Not a bad trade-off for one little car.
