    When Pie is not Pie

    As I have not seen a pie ride mentioned lately I thought I would start up a pie thread My ride last Sunday started out great. Felt like one with the bike, cruised about 17 mph for 22 miles. Stopped at a local gas station and had a cup of coffee and a Hostess Fruit Pie! Cherry!. I don't like to stop when riding alone and leave my bike outside a restaurant so it was pretend pie for me. Then for about 15 mikes i was riding up a 1% slope and slowed a bit but was still feeling great. Then a10-20 mph headwind for the last 15 or so miles and it was hell, gusts higher. Still a great ride though.

    I should have had some pie last Saturday. It sure would have helped.
    I even stopped in a minimart for a fill up of the ol' water bottle but, no, I forgot about pie.
    I think I was too busy trying not to pass out. But, man, it was great ride.
    Can't wait to go try it again.

    " do Tastykake pies count as pie? "

    270 calories, 2.5 grams sat. fat, 2.5 grams trans fat, 19 grams sugar. Sounds like pie to me. Could have made it French Apple, 50 more calories, 30 grams sugar. Yummm.

    Pie is, arguably not a pie when it's:

    A tart, a turnover, a pandowdy, a quiche, a pizza, a pastry, a pasty. It's definitely not a pie when it's a cake, a tort, a bun, a pancake, or cookie. Debates rage as to whether a pie is a pie when it's a crumble, a t*****, a cobbler or or a betty. A pie could be a pie when it is a Moon Pie or an Eskimo Pie, but that is open to regional interpretation and local folkways.

    Spoonbreads, grunts, slumps and hermits are in a category all their own. Don't let anyone tell you that they are pies. They most assuredly are not.

    I think I've been at my editing job too long.

    Haven't been on a pie ride for two weeks now! 3 weeks ago Skipper and I did a new pie ride-from New Glarus to Mt. Horeb, wi. Had pie at a place called blue sky. 2 pieces of pie and a couple of cups of coffee cost 10 bucks-darn near twice the cost of Irma's. It was, however, a nice ride. 47 miles 3800 feet of climbing and against the wind for only 20 miles or so. Won't make Irma's this week either due to prior commitments. I will just have to content myself wearing my Irma's sweatshirt.

    I have a ride I usually reserve for Fridays, or Saturday mornings...out past the country club to wave at friends, then about 35 miles and pass by two country stores and a liquor store at 20 miles. I usually buy a Mrs. Baird's fried pie. Pecan is my favorite, but cherry will do is a pinch. Blueberry is welcome, but its rarely on the shelf. If they are out of my favorite, two Moon Pies and a gatorade will suffice.

    I consider it a real pie ride.

    The Dallas Randonneur group goes out this way and, depending upon which store I partonize, they always ask if I need them to sign my card on the early Saturday morning stop.

    I can't believe you drank gatorade with a Moon Pie

    Pie is not that big over here- except apple and Mince. I have found though that there is no substitute for pie. That Pastry to give the carbs- the fruit to give the Fructose and the Cream, Or Custard, to help it slip down so you can get a second helping in.

    Yesterday one of the ladies in the Head Honcho's office had brought in a fresh homemade pie. Dewberry made from her great-grandmother's recipe. Not too sweet, not too tart, delicious crumble atop it all.

    She even made a fresh pot of coffee while I raved about the pie! And told me that as a cycle commuter I could eat two pieces if I wanted since no one else in that office 'earned' the right to eat pie.

    You guys need to get out more. Some places around here sell RC and some don't.

    At least we established that moon pie is real pie....not a person arguing that point.
