    ‘A good Wensleydale is soft and flaky, will spread like butter and has the delicate blue veining well distributed throughout the curd. The flavour is rich, sweet and creamy, not acid or bitter.’ (Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries Bulletin No.43, 1938)

    Pretty cool insight. I reckon there were almost ‘French’ levels of cheese diversity in pre ww2 uk.

    I’ve always been a bit underwhelmed by Charles Martell cheeses but the Stinking Bishop is an experience!

    If you like Single Gloucester there are some good Welsh cheeses that sort of sit between that and a Wensleydale (I do love Hawes Wensleydale).

    Gorwydd Caerphilly for example is organic and unpasteurised and fucking mint.

    This is the only good News involving Trek in the history of Trek … and News … and you hate on it.

    I will never understand Trek owners.

    I’ve just discovered Cantal cheese. Not sure how it passed me by. Along with Tomme it’s seasonal right now so yeah … try it.

    Please try Smarts Farm single or double Gloucester if you can. The double glos is AFAIK the only real cheese of it’s type left!

    my mtb seems to be at 0.5% wear after 400km on 1x11.

    That would do my head in. I hope you are at least riding through sand/swamps or something.
