Mmmm Pizza: Park Tools Big Wheel Pizza Tool

Continuing the ‘foodie’ posts, I am going to review something that I actually have! Seriously! I got this as a birthday present for my boyfriend (bit like Homer giving Marge a bowling ball for her birthday) and it is a deadly little contraption for the kitchen. Not only does it LOOK like a bike, but it has a super sharp blade and cuts up pizzas into perfect little edible triangles. It is really easy to use as the back of the bike is the handle and the blade sits into a plastic holder when you are not using it (a bit like the ones you use to sit a front wheel in a turbo trainer-but mini sized!).

This is a great ‘stocking filler’, or if you are bored and want to play how-many-things-can-I-get-off-Chain-Reaction-Cycles-for-less-than-€20 (I managed 5, which included bar ends, socks, tubes and stickers – be creative!). Available from CRC @ €16

Mountain Bike Sandwich Wrapper

In looking around the deepest darkest Interweb for bike bargains, cute mtb clothing and interesting accessories, sometimes items appear that just HAVE to be mentioned. Etsy is a huge community of users that buy and sell handmade items, and one member has created… wait for it….  reusable mountain bike sandwich wrappers!

Granted its not the most useful thing that has ever been made, but I suppose it saves you on those mini plastic bags to wrap your sambo in, AND makes you look cool in the lunchroom, AND it saves bits of the sandwich falling out of the sandwich (I hate when that happens, especially bits of lettuce, and then you have to squash them back in). So all in all, weighing up the pros and cons, I think this is a necessary accessory for any biker. Buy it from: www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25455873 (ah go on its only 6 dollars!)
