In my recent interview with Wayne of the Booth Street Bistro he said that he believed the Carrot Cake would make a comeback. Sure enough, the Bistro is currenly selling a Carrot with Walnut Cake.
I tried the cake after riding the 105km route for the Spring Cycle.
Held every in Sydney each October, the Spring Cycle has become one of the city's cycling institutions. One of the attractions is the chance to cycle across the Harbour Bridge.
Creating the 105km route is obviously a challenge. There are only so many city streets you can close for the day. It did mean riders waiting for long periods at lights - there was almost a riot when it took us four sets of lights to cross the Western Distributor at Haberfield - and riding some odd bicycle paths out near Westmead. However, the organisers have to be congratulated on being able to create a relatively long ride though a major city.
The only real climb is up to the Prospect Resovoir.
It is good ride, but you have to accept that the peleton will not always be traveling at top pace. And it's worth heading back to the Booth Street Bistro in Annandale for carrot and walnut cake.
