Hot on the heels of my post about a poutine crawl around Vancouver, you can follow up with dessert at the Cupcake Bike Ride.
What Join others as you cycle from one cupcake shop to another around Vancouver

Cost None for the ride itself but you can purchase cupcakes at the stops
The event is organized by Hyedie Hashimoto who has been operating “Girls’ Cupcake Rides” in Toronto for the last two years during the spring, summer, and fall. In an interview last June, Hyedie told the Toronto Star that she wanted to get more women out cycling in the city and while cupcakes aren’t just for women, they do fit perfectly into bike baskets for transport.
While the gender gap of riders may not be as wide in Vancouver, both men and women are more than welcome to peddle with the group and enjoy these sweet treats along the way.
If you would like to take part just show up at the first stop, Original Cupcakes on Denman at English Bay, on the day of the event. From there, riders will go to Kreation Artisan Bakery (3357 Cambie) then end up at Cassia Cupcakery (1706 Commercial). Since Hyedie is a visitor to Vancouver, she’s open to cycling route suggestions for these stops.
RSVP on Facebook and check out CupcakeRide.com for information on regular events if you’re in the Toronto area.
