It's the Grand De-Pie... Butcher makes edible bike

A BUTCHER in North Yorkshire has joined in the Tour de France celebrations - by making a bike from meat, pies and pastries.

Staff at Appleton’s Pork Butchers in Ripon made the edible ‘pie-cycle’ using giant pork pies for wheels, black pudding for the handlebars and pedals; link sausages for the chain, belly pork for the brakes; a gammon joint for the saddle and breakfast sausages for the frame!

It took staff 24 hours to cook and several hours to assemble.

Shop assistant Toni Vauvert said: "We wanted to do something fun to mark the Tour and show just what we’re made of here at Appleton’s. 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!”
