Marrickville Chocolate and Fine Food Ride

September 6th, 2010 Posted in Events, Uncategorized

Eat your way around the backstreets of Marrickville on an almost calorie-neutral bike tour of chocolatiers, gelato manufacturers, specialty shops and patisserie and confectionary wholesalers that you never knew existed.

On Saturday 18 September Bike Marrickville is leading its famous Chocolate and Fine Food Ride to encourage shopping locally and sustainable transport, using the “Staying Active in Marrickville” map from Marrickville Council.

There will be “refuelling” stops at TIM Products, Casa Del Gelato, Georgiou’s Confectionery, Adora Chocolates and more.

A review, photos and video of the previous Chocolate Ride are on this popular food blog:

The ride meets at 8:45am for a 9am start at Petersham Station (southern side, outside RSL club) and finishes back in Petersham at 12:30 on Saturday 18 September. It is an EASY ride (mostly 10 minutes riding then 10 minutes eating…) suitable for riders of all abilities.
