Pedal power pushes British food
Article date: 13 Jun 2011

Cyclist Tim Keates, a regular customer at The Grid Inn, in Southfields, southwest London, is embarking on an unusual journey this summer.

Real-ale enthusiast Tim and other cyclists are taking part in The Great British Food Cycle – on the ‘Great British food End2End challenge 2011’.

Dressed in tweeds, the group will set out on 1 September, from the edge of the sea in Scotland, finishing a month later at Land’s End. It will be a gastronomic route through modern Britain.

They plan to pedal through the countryside at a butcher’s bike pace, collecting and distributing food donated by some of Britain’s greenest and greatest food producers and retailers.

It is a nationwide campaign to promote healthy and local food and drink, such as organic butchers, artisan bakers, microbrewers and box-scheme makers, getting people in touch with the great food on their doorstep throughout the land.
