The Sweet Ride – Nanaimo Bar Chocolate Cycle Tour

Sweet Ride is a bike tour around our little town with stops at participating shops, restaurants and coffee shops. Warning: chocolate might have to be consumed. All in all the ride is 25 kilometers so the little indulgences along the way certainly will be burned off. The stops without the add on distance is about 10 kilometers so a family with kids could do it with ease.
