2012 Cupcake Ride Season Opener!!

Just in case you haven’t heard, the first Girls Cupcake Ride of 2012 is this Saturday!

Remember, this ride is for Girls Only.  If you’re a guy (or a girl who can’t make it this Saturday) Hyedie and I are planning a Co-ed Sweet Ride for Sunday, April 22nd.  There will be cupcakes (and lots of other fine baked goods) available. We should be announcing details very soon, so stay tuned.

Here are Hyedie‘s words to give you the details about the Girls ride this Saturday:

Our first ride will be fairly short (approximately 9km) so that we can ease into the season. Plus we ride at an easy pace (average 15kms/hr).

I’m so excited to start the 3rd season of the Cupcake Ride! Hope you can make it out!

Date: Saturday, April 7
Time: 1pm

START:Prairie Girl Bakery
Unit 106, 18 King Street East (facing Victoria Street)

– head east on King St to Sherbourne

Paul from Prairie Girl Bakery anticipates a busy Saturday and suggests pre-ordering our cupcakes. Would you gals be interested in doing that? If so I can organize a group order! Let me know in the comments!
