“Recipes For A Good Ride” Now In Motorcycles Shops And Dealerships

FALLS VILLAGE, CT – It’s now easier to buy “Recipes for a Good Ride – The Toymakers Cafe Cookery Book.” The motorcycle-themed cookbook is now available for purchase at a limited number of motorcycle shops and dealerships in Connecticut and Massachusetts.

Brookfield Indian Motorcycle in Brookfield, CT; Doc’s Motorcycle Parts in Waterbury, CT; and Yankee Harley-Davidson in Bristol, CT as well as Cape Cod Harley-Davidson in Pocasset, MA are stocking the cookbook. All will have it for sale this week.

Co-authored by Toymakers Cafe owners Annie and Greg Bidou and journalist Bud Wilkinson, “Recipes for a Good Ride” was released in late December. It is priced at $19.75.

The cookbook mixes more than 60 cafe-tested recipes with profiles of many of the bike-riding regulars who made Toymakers Cafe in Falls Village a colorful and favored haunt in the riding community for more than 18 years.

The cafe closed in September due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, plans are now under consideration by the Bidous to turn the cafe into a flea market-type shop on weekends that would sell coffee and pastry. That will mean motorcyclists could continue to gather on Sunday mornings. A decision should be forthcoming soon.
