A downtown cycling tour will take foodies to several dining hot spots in the dead of winter on Friday.

The Downtown Winnipeg BIZ is hosting the third annual A Moveable Feast, featuring 50 Winnipeggers and international delegates in town to attend the Canadian Association of Planning Students (CAPS) conference.

“There is a full platter of things to do in winter and the people who are taking advantage of them are having way more fun,” said Jason Syvixay, managing director of the Downtown Winnipeg BIZ.

“This tour is a way to show off the city and to show our friends from across Canada how we celebrate and embrace winter.”

Cyclists will also enjoy winter patios and a new ice bar this year at Rudy’s Eat and Drink. Other participating restaurants include Thom Bargen Coffee and Tea, Carbone, East India Company Pub and Eatery, Prairie 360, Promenade Cafe and Wine, and Chocolatier Constance Popp.

The idea behind the tour is to promote local eateries and celebrate the city’s downtown as a premier winter entertainment, and hospitality destination.

Tickets are $40 each and the tour runs from 5-10 p.m.
