Bread on a Bike

securedownloadBread on a Bike is a micro bakery based in Cambridge that offers a stunning range of “real” loaves to anyone based within cycling distance of CB1 (off Mill Road) for delivery – or who can pick up from Alison McTaggart’s kitchen!

Made with organic flour, sourced as locally as possible, Alison’s loaves are all sourdough, produced using a natural wheat or rye leaven and slowly fermented for maximum flavour, nutrition and digestibility.

Alison learned to make her delicious sourdough from one of her bread heroes, Andrew Whitley, founder of the celebrated Village Bakery in Melmerby (and the Real Bread Campaign) and gained valuable experience working at the E5 Bakehouse in Hackney and the first community supported bakery the Handmade Bakery in Yorkshire.


I started baking for a few people I worked with, was made redundant from my job in nutrition research in January 2013, and carried on baking as the friends I was supplying didn’t want to stop having their bread. Eight work colleagues and friends have increased to over 600 customers simply by word of mouth!
