Tour De Taste: Culver City

Last fall, we tried to bring you an event that appealed to both your love of bicycling and good food, and we unfortunately had to postpone our inaugural Tour de Taste. But we’re back with a new date, new location, and new dining vendors!

Join us on Sunday, March 4th, as we explore Ballona Creek, Culver City and beyond — the best way possible — on two wheels and with our taste buds! Riders will take in all the environmental and aesthetic enhancements that have been made to the Ballona Creek bike and pedestrian path and enjoy delicacies from fine Los Angeles restaurants.

When: Sunday, March 4th; tours begin at 9:00 AM

Where: Media Park near Culver City on the corner of Culver Blvd & Venice Blvd

Cost: $65 for LACBC members; $95 for non-members; $120 for Tour de Taste ticket & LACBC membership

 

Each guided tour will take off from Media Park (Culver Boulevard & Venice Boulevard, near Culver City, 90232) in half-hour intervals, beginning at 9:00 AM on March 4th. Each tour is an easy 15 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.

 

So far we have Pete’s Cafe & BarAMMOPace, and Chipotle, with more restaurants on the way!

 

Since Tour de Taste happens to fall on the first Sunday of the month (our Sunday Funday Ride day), we’ll also be organizing a short ride from Wilshire & Western in Koreatown over to Media Park to help usher cyclists over to the Westside. We’ll update you with more details.
