Fruited Scone15th September 2010   Words: Matt Lamy

The cake, of course, is a firm fixture in the cyclist’s diet, while the jam sandwich is an old-school take on the energy bar. So combine the two and what do you get? Only the ultimate cycling stop-gap; the mighty scone.

If your kind of cycling is all about pleasure and ambiance, nothing gives you a more British sense of well being on a summer’s day than stopping in a small country tearoom for this plain or fruited wonder food. Just don’t touch the cheese-toppers.
