Chocolates, Pastries & Ice Cream

If you're a keen cyclist and love your sweets then don't miss the annual MASSBUG (Marrickville and South Sydney Bicycle Group) Chocolate Ride which discovers the hidden gems of the Marrickville Council area. They visit a gelato factory, chocolatier, a fabulous greek patisserie wholesaler and the largest confectionary store in Australia. Just in time to stock up for Easter. It's an easy ride, a bit of traffic, lots of stops to eat ice cream, buy cakes, small goods and chocolate. If this sounds like your cup of tea then join in.

I'm not exactly sure where they'll be going this year but in the past they have included places like:
TIM Products
Casa Del Gelato
Campos Coffee
Serendipity Ice-Cream
Fleur De Lys Patisserie
Adora Handmade Chocolates
Abla Pastries
Georgiou's Confectionery

PROS: Visiting and supporting lots of local yummy food shops
CONS: Need a bike and have to ride for your food, Weather permitting
MUST TRY: Everything

I would if I 1. Had a bike and 2. knew how to ride one! No bother, if you happen to get a hold of the list of places they visit I can make my own walking trip seeing as it's my neighbourhood =)

hi myriam, i'm not an early riser but i'm going to make an effort for this one. i still need to try and borrow a bike though.

hi kristy, ride and eat. best way not to feel too guilty.

hi angie, can't believe you don't know how to ride a bike. but then again you could just run along side :-) i think it would make a great walking trip though.

hi brenda, hoping to go if i can drag myself out of bed to get there. i really want to visit all these great foodie places.

hi Phuoc'n Delicious, you'll meet lots of friendly cyclist if you go to keep you company. i think they sometimes get about 20-30 people going. i guess it depends on the weather too.
