We had plans for a long ride out to the peaks. But deicded to change our plans once we knew there was a possibility of riding with Rapha Condor Sharp and sampling the delightful cooking of Masterchef John Herety.
We up sticks changed our route and decided to see what the cakes shops where the pro team ride are like. Bad times were that one of their stops was closed so we had a rubbish cake in another place. But it was on this route we did visit the Peak View Tea Room. That was an AWESOME cake. I want to drive 3 hours up the M1 just for that.
