Food and Bicycling Vacations
8 Delicious Destinations for Cyclists
Eat to Ride
Puglia region, Italy
Marin County, California
The riding here is a given, but the local-food scene is nearly its equal. Start off with a fresh cup from Courier Coffee Roasters, a bicycle-delivery outfit with a retail shop on 923 SW Oak Street. Head upriver about 12 miles along Forest Park for a stop at Kruger's Farm Market on Sauvie Island, where you can hold a private farm-to-plate dinner; ingredients get picked that morning. (The farm also hosts events that bookend the cyclocross season.) Closer to town, head to the Bent Brick, which relies on local farmers and artisans for its menu, starting with mussels on the half shell.
