    2 five pound notes, spend up to a fiver as close as possible and then your change is minimised.

    Four fivers aren’t significantly heavier than one twenty.

    “Keep the change.”

    Have them put it on your tab

    I always stick my change in the charity box when I’m on my road bike. Not so much when on MTB as I don’t really make stops that often. Therefore I conclude that roadies are better people. 😀

    Take a credit/debit card? You could drill holes out of it too, just make sure you don’t drill through the chip and it should be fine!

    How much will the coffee & cake weigh? What altitude will you receive your change? Will you be evacuating before you head off?

    Much more thought is needed I’m afraid.

    Don’t put the 50p and 20p coins in your back pocket.
    The corners break up the airflow.

    I always take a £10.00 and £5.00 note.

    Fiver for tea.
    Tenner for tea AND cake.

    I have a tab at the pub. Proper weight-weenieism.

    No pints, wine or mixers though, think of the weight savings of spirits compared to the larger volume stuff.

    Right then, Weight Weenies . . .

    I’m packing for a day out in the Peak District. In addition to paper money, should I take any “heavy” coins?
    I’ll be calling at a teashop near the start of the ride, for coffee and either cake or a sandwich. If I hand over my £20 note, I’ll get a load of coins in the change.

    So, is there a “perfect selection” of coins, which should minimise the weight I have to carry for the rest of the ride?
    (Just idly wondering, whilst I eat my porridge. If I was actually a Weight Weeny, I’d go on a diet 😳 )

    Best weight-weenie behaviour is to put all the change in the tips/charity jar.

    I cant honestly believe that someone would ask this question, idle thinking or not.

    If you put a small piece of blue tack between each coin, they don’t rattle in your pocket.

    apparently, there’s a bloke in London who dresses like a wizard and has embedded the chip from his oyster card into a wand which he then waves at barriers as he approaches and they magically open for him.

    I so hope this is true.

    Good thInking. Coffee stop at the top of a hill and ask for your change in as many coins as possible.

    Take a £20 and tell them to keep the change Simples

    Solution;

    If you’re driving to the ride then stop at the tea shop on your way to the start, pay for the food and drink, leave change in the car return to cafe to drink/eat.

    Take a £20 and don’t stop for tea, really this is the only solution 😉

    I generally carry 2 x £20 (taxi money) and 2 x £5 (cafe money) when out on my road bike, maybe a £10 to if planning on stopping for lunch…

    You can’t get a cup of tea and a cake for a fiver!?

    There’s usually two of us. 🙂

    Last stop at Wycoller caff was 2 posh coffees, 2 tuna butties (on a plate, with crisps and salad, la, di and indeed dah) and a couple of huuuuge cakes was about £15.00. 😀

    They’ve got a sweetie shop too:

    Urban wizard my arse, wheres the beard? or the sequins on his hat spelling out “WizZaRd”?

    There was so much potential and he squandered it.
