After a sell-out in 2016, the almost calorie-neutral Chocolate Ride will return to Sydney Rides Festival this weekend with a bike tour of Sydney’s tastiest chocolatiers, gelato and confectioners.
LIFE is great on two-wheels but add chocolate and it's even better. Sydney Rides festival’s celebration of bikes and family fun in the outdoors includes a chocolate ride this Saturday October 14th that tours some of our tastiest chocolatiers, gelato manufacturers and patisseries in Sydney. Eat your way around the backstreets of Marrickville on a choc-tastic bike tour weekend.
A highlight on the chocolate ride is Adora Handmade Chocolates - a little blue oasis of all things chocolate at the southern end of Marrickville’s Steel Park, just across the Cooks River bridge. Adora, with chocolate cafes also at Newtown, Sydney CBD and Parramatta, boasts a loose chocolate range that includes an orange champagne truffle with freshly squeezed orange, zest, champagne and white chocolate as well as the Ben Hur, with walnuts and mocha butter coated in chocolate.
If that does not have your taste buds tingling the sweet treat packs include chocolate drizzled marshmallows.
City of Sydney cycling strategy manager Fiona Campbell says there is so much to discover on the side streets of Sydney, particularly by bike, and if there’s one thing people love to find and eat it’s chocolate.
“We like to think of it as best of both worlds - being active and eating chocolate,” she says.
Experienced guides will lead you to the hidden chocolatiers, gelato manufacturers, patisseries and specialty shops you never knew existed.
This ride is perfect for those with a sweet tooth, so if you're heading down to Sydney this weekend make sure to check it out.
The chocolate ride is one of the 30 events on this year’s Sydney Rides calendar. You’ll need to take your own bike and helmet. Bookings essential at sydneycycleways.net
