    What is all this stuff about "pie"?

    I'm new here. From time to time I hear "pie" this, "pie" that. What's it all mean?

    The Pie event has just been done last Saturday so you may have to wait a year to find out.

    Bit sharp but one of forums traditions

    Actually it's a relatively simple concept.....

    Ride, stop riding, eat pie.



    Alternate plan......

    Eat pie.


    I cheat and substitute Ice Cream for Pie, except on pie day!


    Pictures and ride report are a nice touch, though considered by some to be optional.

    Might as well ask, "What is all of this stuff about life?"

    If you have to ask, you'll never understand.

    Let me just say there's more to enjoy in life than riding a bicycle fast.

    True, but if you ride fast enough, you will get to the pie before everyone else in the ride group.

    Pie are squared.

    Only matters if you're in one of those 300 rider groups that makes a pie stop in some tiny Wisconsin town.

    It's best if the OP experiences it. He should do his own ride for pie although late and give us a report.

    You guys lost me at the beach.

    I like pie, especially coconut cream pie , but tell me more about it. Is it all about pie, or Pi, or TT, or pizza pie?

    By the way, how many pieces are there in this "pie" and does it play a role in the meaning of life? Can all of life's questions be answered by pie?

    Hmmmm. Interesting. I like most kinds of pie except for rhubarb -- can't stand the stuff. It's the equivalent to eating Yams for Thanksgiving dinner which is equivalent to my wife's awful cold potato salad which is equivalent to the taste of Alka-Seltzer which I have to consume right after eating any of the above food items.

    To de-mysticulate:

    Pie is good.

    Cycling is good.

    Eating pie + cycling is good^2.

    Procedure:

    Ride. Stop. Eat. Ride. Stop. Eat. et cetera.

    After the last stop, confess to the 50+ Forum.

    That's fine, leaves more rhubarb for me. It's right at the top of my list.

    although cutting the pie precisely will prove to be a challenge ...

    Yes, but it will result in an infinite number of pieces.

    To each his (or her) own, but I gotta admit that this whole pie thing is getting old.
