Baking bread for the community:

Planet Leicester Bakers operates a ‘micro-bakery’ service and then pedals in and sells from the ‘Bread Bike’ in St Martin’s Square, Leicester. Michelle hand makes and bakes the bread and Surprise Bike Buns fortnightly. Each Bake Day a different and exciting Special Treat is offered.  Special orders for small events also very welcome (see below – minimum charges apply).

 “These are really tasty, can I have another one?!!”

“Oooh, these are lovely. I like them!”

On the Bread Bike:

SPECIAL TREATS start at £2.40 and include tasty rye; sourdoughs; herb, seed and vegetable breads, amongst others. Buns are also baked occasionally. Quality bread you just won’t find in a supermarket!

SURPRISE BIKE BUNS also change each fortnight. From sweet Summer Rose Buns to Panini al Pomodoro, there are new flavours and textures to try and enjoy.

Registered customers receive an e-bulletin ahead of the order deadline giving details of the Bake Day so they know what will be on offer on the bike in St Martin’s Square between 4pm and 6pm on the Friday. Get in touch to find out more and register.
