    Pie Ride question

    Would this qualify for a Pie Ride?

    I know it is a sad example of Pie but would it count?

    Yes, it would count, but really . . . you can do better!

    Sigh. If we start letting this count, we're on a very slippery slope. Just sayin'

    I won't mention the pie. But nice looking bike from what I could see of it in the picture.

    Good grief, Sir. I have barely passed through Newbiedom and this will be my first Pie Ride but I am googling places to ride that will pass a decent establishment offering quality pies in a nice setting. Have you no dignity?!??!

    We've had other 50+'ers eat Hostess pies on Pie Day in the past.

    Even on just your normal day, a Hostess pie isn't much of a treat, much less as a reward on Pie Day.

    If you can't find a good pie shop, and I know that can be a problem, then at least go to your grocery store and get one of these:

    I was guilty of this "low budget" pie either last year or the year before.

    I have a commitment on Sat that may keep me off the bike - it may be hard to get in a good pie ride so I may have to do it Sunday. In my location - this time of year it is strictly apple pie.

    Love the responses and expected most of them!
    DnvrFox had me almost falling out of my chair. So with that I will do my extreme best to find a REAL pie somewhere somehow, I might even have to bake one myself and take a slice with me.
    And I might have to do this ride on Sunday as I have said eailer that I will be walking a Memory Walk with my Mom on Saturday.

    Thanks for getting me straight on the Pie

    If that was my bike I would flip the stem and............ oops! Wrong forum..

    Actually, I really like blue/silver theme. Quite pretty. Now find yourself a decent pie shop. Anything you can find in a vending machine doesn't qualify.

    That's not even food, much less pie.
    The more you ride your bike, the less your ass will hurt.

    Thanks, as for the stem thing...I have gotten a lower one than the one with the bike and I am now at a point where I have been thinking of flipping it so we are on same page and forum.

    Edit: That stem was not the one I was talking about. It is the original one and I have a less rise one on there now and that is the one I am thinking of flipping. As I ride more I am more and more comfortable with a more areo position.

    When I bought that it was a test for the camera and I was just seeing if I could pull off a pie run....oh okay You got me on that...it was/had been like 30 years since I had had one of those "pies" and it will be another lifetime for the next one. It was pretty bad.

    Home made PIE gets expensive on postage. dnvrFox has to verify that it is good enough for the PIE ride. But Sunday is OK.

    There are healthier options- some even have a variety of fruit. But this is more of a tart. And the macaroon is healthy aswell. Just a pity they are so small.

    Who cares about being healthy when eating Pie after a long ride. Your food pictures have always made me hungry. I could ride with you anytime!

    You should be required to make a pilgrimage to Wilson's Ice Cream Parlor in Epharim, Wi for even asking such a question. Shame on you!

    Sorry, folks, there has been a time or two after a good hard 30-40 mile ride when a Hostess pie is all I had and it tasted damn fine.
    So, back off and leave the poor guy alone

    You've gotten lots of feedback already, but let me add this: the "pie" on the right goes well with your bike, and would earn you poseur points. Just sayin'
