D'you reckon he'd like a free ad in return for a little article on charcuterie or butchery?

Don't know, might be worth asking. i get the feeling they may look at it as witchcraft though.

If you go there and decide he's not as good as your regular butcher then I'd genuinely like to know where he is!

Oh, I use three or four butchers. The guy on Burleigh Street for lamb and game, the guy on Mill Road for beef (although not since the freezer was filled with beef from a local producer), the guy on Mitchams Corner for other game sometimes, and the guy on Cambridge Market for pork and bacon. I've been planning to explore the one out Newnham way, which has a good reputation, but I haven't been yet.

I use one, its bloody miles away, and even there I don't think it really parts muster with what people here would by and large want

I'm simply far too stupid to get by with one butcher when I can cycle an insane distance to go to four. I seem to be doing more and more miles on the bike every week, just getting food in.

Now you are trying to piss me off 4 useable butchers in cycling distance

Swindon is one of those places with a lot of cycle tracks by milage, but they are not going anywhere useful

A few months back, I decided to ride to the town centre, and got my bike ready, and then frankly chickened out I have been in 3 two wheeled crashes that wrote off my bike/motorcycle each time and a friend on a bike died in a hit and run, and the roads round here are now even worse for bikes.

I'm an aggressive cyclist; I maintain a strong primary road position in all but the most unusual situations, which allows me to ride fast and safely. By doing so I can reduce incidents of people overtaing dangerously to almost none, I really only have to worry about the people who are willing to assault me, try to bully me out of the way, or who have no concept of comparative speeds. So that's only three or four idiots per day

Basically, I'm too pig-headed to give in to traffic.

Within cycling distance we have more than four butchers. There's at least another one down in Cherry Hinton, another in Fen Ditton, at least a couple in Newmarket, etc. It's all about how far you're happy to cycle.
