The Topping Pie Company is to support the Tour de Yorkshire, an international cycle race taking place between 29 April and 1 May. 

To celebrate the Tour de Yorkshire riding into the region, The Topping Pie Company has provided special ‘Pie-cycles’.

The 450g handcrafted pork pies are made to a family recipe and sandwich delicious chicken breast with diced dried apricots and cranberry in layers of British Red Tractor pork meat baked in rich hot water crust pastry and finished off with a bicycle design top.

The international cycle race begins in Beverley on 29 April, and ends in Scarborough on 1 May.

A showpiece Pie-cycle, handcrafted by chief baker and managing director Roger Topping, will also be on display at the media centre in Doncaster.

Topping said: “We are delighted to get behind the iconic bike race with our special cycle-themed pork pies. The region boasts an array of award-winning local food producers, so visiting media will get to feed on a real Yorkshire feast.”

The Pie-cycles will also be on sale in Doncaster Market and at the Topping Pie Company’s outlet in Doncaster’s Frenchgate Shopping Centre.

Earlier this month, The Topping Pie Company baked a Queen’s Pie, which was delivered to Her Majesty on 20 April to celebrate her 90th birthday.
