Here’s a cupcake idea that’s been getting a lot of buzz this week and certainly one that I hope catches on in my hometown: city-wide cupcakery bicycle tours. Hyedie Hashimoto recently founded the Toronto Girls’ Cupcake Bike Ride. Ever since the Toronto Star did a story on it last week, she and her new ride have been all over the cupcake blogs.
Why a cupcake ride? Because cupcakes are awesome (hello!) and because Toronto has the right density of cupcake places for a good city-wide bike tour. Why ladies’ only? “I heard last year about a report that said less women were riding bikes than men,” says Hashimoto, “I wanted to do something to help promote girls on bikes.”
