The two go hand in hand really, you can’t cycle without food (AKA energy) and after a gruelling bike ride, food is the must have aid to recovery (and probably what’s get you through those last few miles!).
Autumn is such an exciting season for hearty food in the hearty Eden Valley and with the Tour of Britain event not just passing through the region but also playing host to what’s set to be one of the most exciting summit finishes in TOB history, cycling is also very much “in season” too.
What could be better than some super September seasonal lamb? Cumbria, internationally acclaimed for its high quality lamb and quintessentially linked. Along with the equally as famous Cumberland sausage, these two dishes are longed for and anticipated when visiting the county and almost always consumed by visitors at once. They are warm, welcoming and recovery inducing post ride meals that’s for sure.
Pioneers many say, immense supporters and producers themselves, Tebay Services and the Tebay Services Hotel offer their own reared Cumbrian lamb across all the Westmorland Family businesses. Starting out as farmers, the ethos of local, quality, yet good value meat following into all manner of other food products continues to be to be core values of the business at every site.
Throughout autumn and winter the Tebay Services Hotel has a special dinner, bed and breakfast offer which will be released very soon along with a new menu. For the meantime take advantage of the current offer of £108 for bed & breakfast (along with a 10% off voucher for use in the Tebay Services Farm Shops) and sample rump of lamb with salsa verde on the menu right now.
