    Not Blueberry

    But I am attending the Pumpkin Pie Ride in Ottawa, IL on Sunday 10 - 1. A lady friend who got back into bicycling this summer will be going with me and this is her first organized ride. Here is the link:

    I prefer blueberry, but will try the pumpkin for qaulity.

    What is the pie formula, one slice for every ten miles?

    That's the blueberry formula. For pumpkin you will have to experiment and get back to us. But I would think, because of no top crust, you may want to replenish about every 8 miles. October is pumpkin month, so please let us know.

    I love pumpkin pie-- and coffee. What could be more fall-like. Also, it seems more substantial and "carbish".... just the thing to power one through breeze tossed leaves on the autumn roadway. I'm in.

    my brother-in-law has a specialty recipe for pumpkin pie so soliciting his support (he's a reluctant rider along with his wife's newfound cycling passion) sounds just the ticket!

    I think I should do some training this week. Two pies sounds like a good start!

    What a beautiful day for a ride. The Pumpkin Pie Ride had 370 bicyclists attending today in the nice sunny 80 degree weather. Not bad for a small town.

    My friend rode a single speed Huffy for twenty miles with little problems. And this was her first organized bike ride. Look out if I convince her to get a 24 speed.

    CrossChain, they did serve coffee with the pumpkin pie. I only ate two slices of pie with coolwhip, but will practice my pie eating before next years ride. But I also had a bagel, cookies, and fudge.
