Planet Leicester Bakers

Planet Leicester Bakers is the creation of Michelle Stratford – a baker who jumps on her ‘bread bike’ every fortnight to bring loaves to her home city. Every other Friday she bakes and then pedals her bread into St Martin’s Square in Leicester city centre. Customers can sign up to a mailing list to get an alert 24 hours before the bake, which lets them know what will be on offer.

Past bread bike treats include plaited challah bread, Swedish saffron buns, honey & sesame plait and ‘Lovers’ Window’ buns.

Michelle’s bread bike has featured in the local newspaper and on BBC Radio Leicester, and people love the ‘green’ nature of her idea, as well as her delicious bread. She also offers private training for home bread-bakers, public speaking and team building. To find out more, visit the Planet Leicester Bakers website.

Planet Leicester Bakers is a member of the Bread Angels network and supporter of both the Slow Food Campaign and Real Bread Campaign. Find out more in this article.

    Michelle gave the Ladies of Hinckley Canalside WI such an entertaing night with an excellent talk and
    wonderful Bread…her talk was full of helpful information and tips with just the right amount of humour.
    The bread was delicious… and the bread and rolls that she brought with her sold out within 15 minutes..
    That truely speaks for itself…
    About 80 Members attended and they were all very complimentary and said what an enjoyable
    Evening it had been
