Everyone reading this knows exactly what I’m talking about.  Even the lowliest morsel of packaged “whatever” can taste like the very apex of fine dining, after a day of arduous cycling. 

Your body, in need of nourishment, greets food with ecstasy – even if it that food is nothing more nutritionally sound than a Snickers bar, or a cup of ramen noodles from a convenience store in the middle of nowhere.

The bike touring taste bud enhancement factor is well known among avid cyclists.  It’s even more evident when there’s some good food around.  Sometimes that food can be found in obscure locations, making it even more delicious, because it’s a local secret.

Imagine stumbling on an out-of-the-way joint that prepares something truly extraordinary – a stellar steak and eggs, or a rice bowl prepared with local ingredients.  When you’re an adventure cyclist, the possibilities are endless, especially when you have some great tips to lead the way.

Local Secrets.

These are not in any guidebook.  They’re not Michelin-rated.  They’re whispered of by locals, ear to ear and deliberately kept a secret, to keep them from being overrun by ravening foodies (and cyclists).  These are the places you’re looking for.

And you’ll find them when you ride with VeloGuide.  Our cycling guides are not only exceptional cyclists, whether amateur enthusiasts of note, former Olympians, or professionals.  What they all have in common is what this post’s about – the bike touring taste bud enhancement factor.

And those cyclist’s taste buds are what has led them to some of the most obscure culinary haunts in their areas.  They’re not about to let the cat out of the bag to just anyone, but you’ll have a front row seat for these secrets, with one of these hungry cyclists at your side.

Our guides have got the goods.

They’ll tell you about local gems like Cookie’s Grill, found in the city of Chilliwack, British Columbia.  Whether you’re riding from Vancouver to experience the magnificent Fraser Canyon or headed through the rural backroads of the  Fraser Valley and its ample farmlands, you’ll be initiated into the cult of Cookie’s, with one of the finest breakfasts to be found in the area.

Imagine riding with a guide who can take you for one of the best sandwiches in Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco Mexico.  Known as “tortas” in local lore, the torta especial at Loncheria Las Americas in Old Town Puerto Vallarta, rivals any sandwich you’ve ever eaten. 

Are your taste buds tingling yet?

No matter where you’re going in the VeloGuide universe, you’ll have the inside goods on where the best grub is, with one of our guides sharing the culinary secrets of the area with you.
