New Toronto food tour makes you bike for your dinner

Toronto food tours can be rather gluttonous and predictable affairs, but the latest concept to enter the fray tries to combat the bloat-factor by bringing a cycling element into the mix. Cycledine is pretty much exactly what it sounds like: groups of 10 (or less) ride to a series of restaurants across the city, thereby indulging and burning calories all at once.

Tours take four hours and include three course menus at three restaurants for $90. Booze is not included in the price, though you can you add drinks to your meals to the extent that you feel safe riding onto the next destination.

The company describes itself as "Toronto's first cycle-based experiential dining tour," a tag that's sure to attract a demographic that believes dining should be a primarily social experience. You'll have to bring your own ride, but with two guides per tour, the mixing and mingling should be well taken care of.

Affiliated restaurants are yet to be named (and aren't disclosed prior to each tour), though Cycledine assures prospective customers that they've established relationships with "many popular and prominent Toronto restaurants." It all sounds rather auspicious for those who like to ride and imbibe at the same time.
