Pâtisserie Cyclisme needs your help!

Have you heard of Pâtisserie Cyclisme yet? Established by a keen cyclist, it's a website that aims to provide details and reviews of all the world's cycling-friendly cafes - something that would in all likelihood soon become as valuable an aid when planning a route as a decent map. After all, there are only two things that we cyclists like as much as riding our bikes: drinking tea and eating cakes.

At present, they have around one hundred reviews of cafes in the United Kingdom and Europe but the site grows daily and, after just a year, is becoming one of the Internet's cycling hubs. The service's creator Louise is now hoping to develop her idea further, but to move on to the next stage she needs money. Don't click "back" just yet!

She's not asking you to put your hand in your pocket - but you can still help. All you need to do is vote for her funding application. If she can get 500 votes, her company will receive £500 from Enterprise Nation to put towards development and the purchase of a professional camera which will allow the reviews to be backed up by quality photographs of the various cafes.

It takes about 20 seconds to sign up and vote and it's completely free - so there really is no reason not to do it.
