Saddle up for the 2011 Tour del Taco, a bike ride through the finest taco establishments this town has to offer. Organized by three taco-loving friends, the Brooklyn by Bike tour on October 9 will hit five spots in Brooklyn and Queens: Los Hermanos in Bushwick, La Esquina in Williamsburg, El Gobo in Corona, Roosevelt Ave taco trucks in Queens, and one TBD Sunset Park stop. Who will reign supreme?
We spoke to Brooklyn by Bike co-founder Anita Singh, who tells us she’s most excited to his El Gobo, which friends have described as the [perennial taco favorite] “Tortilleria Nixtamal killer.” This is the third year Singh has lead the Tour del Taco, which she describes as a fun and casual ride (but still, ride safe! No liability here.) Cyclists will meet at Grand Army Plaza at 11am, then travel south in Brooklyn, north up through Queens, and ends back in Brooklyn with an afterparty at DeKalb Market. The ride is limited to 75 people and is totally free, though you will have to buy your own tacos. Singh recommends about $5 per stop. RSVP to reserve your space here, and prepare for a taco adventure of epic proportions!
