Fantastic food ideas for Tour of Britain cyclists

DSC_0281If you’re a keen cyclist, there’s little doubt you’ll already know that the Tour of Britain will very soon be cutting a route down through mid Wales. If there’s one thing that an exhausted cyclist is in desperate need of (besides a good sit down) is a hearty meal. Here are a few suggestions for where to pick up some fantastically delicious local produce courtesy of Local Food Talks
 .
The official route of Stage 3 kicks off in Newtown, so if you want to get a good meal in before getting started, we’d suggest looking to the following:
 .
Cwm Harry put together delicious organic veggie boxes and can deliver – so there’s no excuse for not cramming in your vital vitamins and minerals.
 .
Visit the website and preorder anything from sugar-boosting cakes to cereals and wholefoods depending on how you want to fill your stomach pre-ride.
 .
Serving up all manner of sweet treats such as fudge and sugar mice, this one probably best for a much-needed sugar hit than a tasty breakfast.
 .
As the route winds further south, it might be that you want to stop off (unless you’re a real pro) and re-fuel. Here are some options:
 .
If you’re feeling in the need for meat, Poyning Pork boast some of the most delicious sausages in the area, plus fantastic pork and bacon.
 .
And while we’re on the meat theme, Dolithon Meats produce beautiful local Welsh lamb and Welsh black beef, all home reared on the family farm.
 .
Don’t think for one moment that we’re condoning drinking and cycling, but if you’re done for the day, you could always enjoy a tempting tipple here…
 .
And finally, the route ends up in the foodie hub of Abergavenny, where you’ll find no shortage of local delis and restaurants.
 .
For something slightly different, why not seek out Herbal Connections, who produce a variety of herbs, spices and essential oils – you can give yourself a bit of a rub down and end up smelling delightful!
