    Time for The Cake Eater Studded Tires

    Now this was a great way to end a four-day holiday weekend. Put the Terrene Cake Eater Studded Tires on the bike the day before, because of all the freezing rain we've had.

    Cyclists in Kent, please help me with village shop and cafe feedback

    I haven't posted for a long time, partly because I've not been able to cycle through injury. However, I am back in the saddle, but also saddled with an interesting task - our village shop closed rather suddenly, and we are researching the idea of a community shop and cafe to replace it. We are...

    Lighting the load: the correct change

    Hi I'm going on an Audax next week and we have been asked to bring some change so that the nominated stop doesn't run out of change when we all rock up with notes. Do my question what is the lightest combination of coins that will allow the exact amount to be paid no matter what the bill is...

    Here's a new menu suggestion for your local cafe:

    Meet the Cruffin; it's a croissant baked in a muffin tin and stuffed with a raspberry and some raspberry jam. Gloriously calorific. I ate this in CapeTown, home of several other interesting hybrid dishes including the Bunny Chow, which originated from Durban I think:
