Best Cake Stops (also beer)

New and improved! With Google maps.
I've set up a new map and given access to all. You will probably need to create a profile with Google if you don't already have one in order to add your Cake Stops to the map.

So share all your favourite cakeries...  :P

I've imported a load from the south midlands, think I may have temporarily renamed the map, hope it's OK now.

Should we be asking the admins to make this a 'sticky'?

Brilliant idea. Cake, one of the essentials of life.  :thumbsup: The only drawback is that the map could get rather crowded.  ;D

Does it have to be Cake?

Could it also be BEER stops?

Perhaps we could use a different symbol for beer stops.

When editing the text, there is a box above it with the symbol. Click on the symbol and a pop-up is displayed with the available symbols.

Right click on the blue thing and then choose properties. You can then choose a symbol. The tragedy is that there is no pint of beer symbol.

If you have a look at the description, I think I mentioned hostelries as well as cakeries....  :P

24 hrs of quiet and I worried this would die on it's ass!

It appears you can upload your own icons, so if anyone has a pint glass icon on the web somewhere and would like to share...we could use that for teh pubehs.

Strange - there doesn't appear to be any cake to the East of the M1  :-\

According to our research in Cambs, Lincolnshire & E Notts, there are no cafes worth visiting (and frequently no cafes at all) between Mildenhall & Yorkshire ;D
Getting there...

Could some clever person please add Honey pot tea rooms in Rosliston for me.  The pc at work is rubbish and I can't get it to work.  The web address is Beehive Farm Woodland Lakes Rosliston Derbyshire | Family Fun in the Heart of the National Forest | Derby Burton Lichfield Tamworth Staffordshire.  Good food, excellent value, plenty of room, space to park & lock your bikes & lots of cyclists on sunday afternoons.

Thanks!

I've added a couple in the east of Northants. I've got some more potentials too further east but I have to check them out personally first.

It's a tough job but someone's got to do it.  O:-)

a great mind thinks alike

The Viper in Mill Green is undoubtedly the best pub in the world, ever. Many cyclists stop by there - some of the old boys even have 'Viper' jerseys, slogan: 'Powered by Nethergate...' and 'If found, return to The Viper'. ;D

The beer and food is excellent and reasonably priced, it's in a great location, and there's always a friendly atmosphere.
