Toronto’s Tour de Dufflet: No cake walk

School’s out and I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than doing two of my favourite things: cycling and eating dessert!  Dufflet Pastries’ annual Tour de Dufflet during Bike Month lets you eat your sweets guilt free, as you peddle to all three participating locations. (Distance is approximately 35 Km or more depending on your starting and finishing point.)

I received my $5 passport at my first location on Queen Street East. (You plan your own route and the order of locations you visit.)  The best part is that at each scrumptious shop you get to choose a delicious dessert bar and your choice of water, tea or coffee.  Gobble it down at Dufflets or take it for the road.  After you’re finished you receive a $5 gift certificate for a future visit.

Now if only there were a Tour de Chocolat and  Tour de Crème Glacée!
