Muddymoles mountain biking in the Surrey Hills and Mole Valley

Velos, et Cake

Yes, I know that is probably terrible French. In fact I’m such a poor linguist that I can’t even tell if that’s poor French. What it is though is a very contrived way of introducing a nod to a website very much close to my own (and other Moles’) heart.

Velocake. Now, right from the start we’ve featured cake and rest stop reviews on the Muddymoles but this just takes the whole cake ‘n’ bikes culture that bit further. Despite being based in Cornwall where I’d be majoring on the pasties personally, Velocake are far more ambitious, positioning themselves as a bicycle and baked goods militia.

I wish them all the best and couldn’t help giving the hat tip to them, even if for now there’s no meat or jerky on the horizon. It’s also made me realise we need to write more cake-related nonsense. Hey, if there’s a demand out there after all…!

About the author

Matt is one of the founding Molefathers of the Muddymoles, and is the designer and main administrator of the website.

Having ridden a 2007 Orange Five for many years then a 2016 YT Industries Jeffsy 29er, he now rocks a Bird Aether 9 and a Pace RC-627.

An early On-One Inbred still lurks in the back of the stable as a reminder of how things have moved on. You can even find him on road bikes - currently a 2019 Cannondale Topstone 105 SE, a much-used 2011 Specialized Secteur and very niche belt drive Trek District 1.

If you've ever wondered how we got into mountain biking and how the MuddyMoles started, well wonder no more.
