The Utopian 500 tour is sponsored by Fat Tire Beer, Clif Bar, Xtracycle, Tallac, Bicycle Alliance of Washington and Bike Friday.
It's the second annual outing for the tour, which starts in May 2003, and which is headlined by bicycle (yes, it's spelt with a lower-case 'b') with guest performances by other bands.
bicycle's lead singer Kurt Liebert will be attending Interbike on October 6th and 7th where he will be hosting a press conference and performing at the Tallac booth.
“When you think of surfing, you think of the Beach Boys. When you think of biking, we want people to think of bicycle,” Liebert told People magazine.
bicycle is said to be a "pop, funk, metal and rap outfit."
A feature in The New Yorker Magazine said: “Liebert writes quick and clever songs with catchy hooks…if only all underground pop musicians could be as creative.”
