Re: Felicity Kendall

In view of a thread in the HPV category and an expressed preference for a certain lady by certain members of this forum, I here declare this discussion open!

Can I give you an answer from the point of view of someone whose experience of touring to date stands at 13 miles? I am also a woman: ie perversity is the default from your point of view. :wink: I would love the idea of cycling away from my house, all ready to go. No packing the car/putting the cycl...

Memory jogged by the ' favourite sandwich' thread, barmbrack might be a choice especially as it has very little flour (if any, and I'm sure that you could use any type of flour) in it.

I can't lay hands on a recipe but I'm sure that Google would provide a multitude.

This sounds like mine. Does Mrs Si put raisins and sultanas in hers?

I've never used it on a cycling trip but it worked a treat on the 'Kids 'n' Gardening Days' I used to hold in Cornwall.
