Pedaling Palates: "Tour de Taste" Will Take Eating On Two Wheels

One upcoming event will surely appeal to food-loving bicyclists. Tour de Taste, a new fundraising event presented by the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition, will find riders pedaling and pausing to enjoy some delicious eats.

The ride will go from the Ballona Creek path to the beach and back to Culver City, where participants will enjoy food and drinks from Rush Street, Pace, Chipotle, Ammo, Larchmont Grill, New Belgium Beer and more. More info from the Tour de Taste itself:

Each guided tour will take off from Media Park (Culver Boulevard & Venice Boulevard, Culver City, CA 90232) in half hour intervals, beginning at 10:00 AM on March 4th, 2012. Each tour is an easy 12 miles. We'll hit some restaurants on the way and then, after the tour, valets will watch your bike back at Media Park in Culver City, while you enjoy a selection of tasty treats and refreshing beverages. Helmets required.

Tickets are $65 for LACBC members; $95 for non-members; $120 for Tour de Taste ticket & LACBC membership. All proceeds go to the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition, a non-profit bicycle advocacy organization working to make our city more bike friendly.
