Portland’s beloved mini-bike dance team the Sprockettes, will soon embark on their very first tour. They’ve been tapped by bike-loving brewer New Belgium to perform at four stops on the company’s popular Tour de Fat.

Starting in July, the ladies will board a converted, veggie-oil powered Greyhound bus for their first stop in San Francisco, California. From there, they’ll perform in Truckee, then Seattle, and their last stop will be a special, homecoming performance in Portland on August 18th.

Congrats to the Sprockettes for landing such an awesome gig. Have a great trip and we can’t wait to see you in Portland!
