    There is still 1/2 an apple pie left and a bushel of fresh picked apples - I plan to repeat the experience quite often over the next several weeks.

    It could become a habit for me. The fun part was finding a good pie joint and then planning a ride around it.

    I don't know about my next Pie Ride, but I routinely pedal past an Ice Cream stand on my commute home. They will close for the season at the end of October. I'm working the Day Shift today and tomorrow, hmmmmm. I think I feel an Ice Cream urge coming on.

    March 14 has long been a traditional pie ride day. What day of the week does that fall on next year?

    According to the National Pie Council, National Pie Day is January 23. But I think that may be the date for last year's National Pie Day.

    Perhaps we should plan a group ride based around the Great American Pie Festival on April 24-25, 2010, in Celebration, FL.

    "National Pie Council" What do they know?

    I'm holding out for March 14. If it really falls on a Sunday I'm thinking that 16 minutes past midnight would be perfect.

    Pie and biking go together every day!

    Sure we can have an annual event where everyone rides & eats pie on the same day, but that is no reason to forgo having pie on any day that you ride.

    I recently spent a week in the Lanesboro, MN area, riding the Root River Trail. Along that trail, Lanesboro has 4 places to get ice cream, Preston has a shop that serves 4-5 types of pie, Fountain has a cafe that serves 3-4 types of pie, and then there is the Aroma Pie Shop in Whalen, that offers 20+ types of pie every day. That place is packed and about 90% of their customers are people riding the trail.

    I had pie on 3 of my 4 rides last week, reserving the 4th for ice cream. Well, on one ride I had pie a la mode with ice cream.

    Will try to remember to do so. My problem is that I don't schedule my rides and so infrequently know the day I'm going to ride, and never know the hour. When I plan a ride on a Saturday, I might leave at 9AM or at 5PM, or any hour inbetween.

    M&M sell pie- that is not OT.

    But make your own ride- anyday- anytime- and you can have one- Only problem is that when it is not "Official" PIE ride day- it is 30 miles Extra per slice.

    World shortage on PIE due to some hungry cyclists wanting it

    I had 2 slices of a delicious cherry pie today, Cranky. I'm still not able to ride so I'm counting on you to do the riding for me.

    You owe 30 more miles.

    Actually, for me at least, Thursday October 8 at 6:30pm...

    http://www.tricountytriangletrail.org/

    I've not done it, but a good friend told me about it and I'm buying lights to try it (convenient excuse).

    Probably not what the OP was referring to, but fwiw...

    You might enjoy this story, which combines the topics of cycling for your health and eating pie:

    http://www.myinstride.com/stories/20....nw-738823.sto

    A quote from it:
    "The pie rides are a tradition among Wisconsin bicyclists, Stuttgen said. Groups of as many as 300 people bicycle to small towns and eat at cafés. "

    I own a copy of the Wisconsin Cafe book.

    I know how you feel, when I lived near Palm Springs, my next door neighbor had a desert apple tree. The apples would be ripe in mid summer. Think 120 degree days. He gave us apples and we paid him in apple pies. Desert apples make great apple pie, but they are almost unknown because they don't ship very well, so they are not sold commercially.

    I guarantee that when 300 bicyclists roll into a small town, there isn't going to be enough pie for all of them.
