How many times have you taken the Tour De Dufflet challenge?


So many of you are back to ride the #TourDeDufflet this year and it's so much fun to see you all again!

Here's Sharon McLaughlin with a pal (sorry, forgot to ask her name!). Sharon's done our sweet little tour for the 5th year in a row. Yes, she is awesome!

Due to road construction, Sharon was having a little trouble navigating from our Beach to our Downtown location, but this nice guy (who was also riding TdD) showed them the way.

Eat More Cake, Ride More Bike ... make new friends!

(Tour de Dufflet ends on June 30th. Details on how to participate are at

This year's gift for registering is a reflective arm and/or leg band ... you get to decide where you'd like to wear it :D

As usual, your $5 dollar registration will be completely donated to to Cycle Toronto ( so that they can continue to do good work in making Toronto a safer place to ride your bike.

CotM: eat more pink cake!


The Dufflet Cake of the Month for June is Pink Velvet!

Red Velvet cakes are famous for being ... well, famous! Earliest recipes originate from the southern U.S. and use everything from beet juice to artificial food dyes to enhance their ruddy hue under a blanket of white frosting.

Dufflet reinvents this come-back classic via natural food chemistry (cocoa, cinnamon and buttermilk) to create her magical Pink Velvet Cake. Moist sheets of spicy, cocoa enriched cake are layered with a sweet cream cheese icing that is naturally tinted pink - no artificial colours - and decorated with a white chocolate daisy.

On special June 1 - 30, 2014
6" regular: $24, special $22
