While riding just west of central London, I came across Poilâne, a wonderful Parisian bakery. Needing to be recharged, I headed for the door. Before I could make it inside, I was met by the manager, Rima, who wanted to know all about the Kindness Bicycle. Taken by the story and with the charitable ethic of Poilâne, I was invited in for a cup of tea and a tour of their bakery.
I was given a to-go bag of punitions, a shortbread cookie that I ate in one sitting…the flavor was incredible.
They also have a restaurant nearby that I will certainly be visiting.
Thank you Poilâne!
