L.A. County Metro Sponsors the Northridge Delis, Desserts and Deliciousness Ride, led by C.I.C.L.E.!
Join us to explore these sweet establishments by bike!
On Saturday, November 16, through a sponsorship by the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro), C.I.C.L.E. (Cyclists Inciting Change thru LIVE Exchange), with the Valley Bikery, will lead a community bicycle ride, “The Northridge Deli, Desserts and Deliciousness Ride,” from Dearborn Park through Northridge and Granada Hills to visit some of the area’s tastiest spots. This expedition, open to all cyclists, will stop by The Original Weiler’s Northridge Delicatessen, Gayle’s Perks, Delicious Bakery, and A Sweet Design (whose passions are cakes and cupcakes!). At each stop, owners will welcome participants and share their business’ history, connection to the community and discuss their ingredients for creating a delicious establishment.
As with all C.I.C.L.E. rides, this ride is family-friendly, leisurely paced and will return to the starting point after the event.

Prior to the ride we will address safe street riding and group ride etiquette to ensure smooth sailing.
