We cooked-up an edible ‘pie-cycle’ in honour of the Tour de France – a life-sized bike made from all our best bits (including those famous pies)!

The porky project has giant pork pies for wheels, complete with specially designed ‘spoke’ crust; black pudding for handlebars and pedals; chipolatas for the chain, belly pork for the brakes; gammon joint for the saddle and breakfast sausages for the frame!

Created by our 12-strong team at the Ripon branch, the tasty two-wheeler took 24-hours to cook and several hours to put together – and is guaranteed to give you a spare tyre!

“We wanted to do something fun to mark the Tour and show just what we’re made of here,” says Ripon shop assistant Toni Vauvert.

“Everyone had an input – even our van driver – and it gives a whole new meaning to the notion of fast food. All we need now is a fork in the road!”

The pie-cycle is on display in the window of the historic Ripon butchers.
