Britta and Emma set up 2 Wheels and a Piece of Cake in 2015. We met in the school playground and it was our love of riding our bikes that brought us together. Creeping out of the house on early Sunday mornings, trying different routes, we pedalled and chatted, chatted and pedalled… usually making sure we had time for tea and a piece of cake. Together we pushed each other on, taming local hills and trying different cafes. Emma stepped down in 2018, and Gina came on board. She already had the jersey and certainly has the cycling bug.
We have done some great rides on our bikes – Coast to Coast, the first stage of the Tour de France in Yorkshire, London to Paris, Edinburgh to Lands End, cycled the length of the Rhine, and currently exploring the Danube river. But, we still think that there is nothing better for the body and soul than heading out from our own front doors for a quick blast of fresh air on two wheels!
We have really enjoyed our 5 years in the world of organising cycling events. We are very grateful for all the fantastic support that we have received. It has been great fun, and a real privilege to be a small part of so many people’s biking adventures. We have met some fantastic people and made some firm friends!
The cycling bug has definitely worked its magic on us, and we are loving spreading it around!
Looking forward to seeing you at one of our events, social rides or bike courses this year!
Britta and Gina
