... whilst searching for somewhere to have breakfast. As you may now be aware, I quite like a hearty breakfast before a ride and I'm not a great lover of porridge. So faced with the prospect of a bowl of Museli (Swiss for rabbit food) or Grenola (Swiss for rabbit food with bird food in it) I hurried towards the welcoming aroma of sausage meat and pastry.
