what is the mince pie cycling mileage equivalence?
There's a cute little shop that I pass sometimes when I'm cutting through the back-doubles around Waterloo.
There's also some adjoining windows where you can see people busily cooking and baking.
The place is called Konditor and Cook and they have a range of secret weapons which they deploy at this time of year.
One harmless looking item is the Mince Pie.
They manage to make them look oh-so-innocent and home-made. When you get some, loosely packed in a box they still don't give the game away.
A mere nibble is enough to confirm their brilliance. Buttery pastry with just the right amount of crumblage. Aroma-packed filling that doesn't need to resort to being over-doused in cooking brandy.
I suggest these are the real deal although I'd hazard a guess that they are up around 8 miles of cycling per unit consumed.
Time for a bike ride, I think.
Update: I've just cycled around 3 mince pies worth of distance.
