There is nothing quite like a good cup of tea and a top-notch biscuit — brewed properly and served deliciously. Before piling into a rutty, muddy, chaotic mountain bike track.
But don’t be fooled, this is a film that lets the riding take centre stage. Expect wild, raw action filmed in a classic British handheld, gritty manner. Some of mountain biking’s biggest names and most underrated shredders will tear corners to pieces, boost jumps, slash through muck and mud and let it all out for the camera.
Tea & Biscuits is a film that’s free to view online, but at the heart of Misspent Summers is long lasting printed matter.
Do you love a proper brew with a good Digestive biscuit? We do, and we want to shout about it.

Maybe the question should be who? We ride bikes. We dream bikes. We tell stories about bikes. We’re just a bunch of fun-loving riders and media geeks who work together without the constraints of a traditional publisher.
We like cakes as much as we enjoy a cup of tea and a biscuit. For this reason, we find Jaffa Cakes the perfect circular dunking snack.
