Cyrus loves cycling and he loves tacos, and when he combines these two passions he creates this - a personal, unique, off-the-beaten-track food tour including the best Mexican grub in the Bay Area. And bikes. Actually, I was only visiting town so I didn't have a bike, but that wasn't a problem; we walked around Fruitvale and devoured tacos (pollo, carnitas, carne asada, lengua...) seafood tostadas and Salvadorian pupusas. Fruitvale rocks. Cyrus is a super-nice, enthusiastic guy; a well-travelled tech journalist with tons of diverse interests (and a healthy appreciation of British satire), and a great person to spend a couple of hours with.

This tour is great if you are looking to eat delicious Mexican food and enjoy a leisurely bike ride. Cyrus was a great guide and a lot of fun to talk to. I have already recommended this tour to my friends who also live in the Bay Area.
