    After your ride today, remember this:

    Today is NATIONAL PIE DAY! My radio station announced it. It must be true!

    I propose that for any effort however miniscule or herculean on your beloved steed today, you reward yourself with a nice preferably warm piece of PIE.

    Given the especially cold conditions in some parts of the country, I reckon anything over 1 mile on the bike will qualify. Stationary bikes? Well, we don't want anyone to get hurt...

    I'm not sure how/why everyone here missed this. Well, it seems at least McQz didn't - beat me to it! But it seems to me that we should have been preparing for this day for weeks!

    I'll have a piece of tart cherry, Thanks!

    Aaaahhhhh!

    I rode my bike downtown to the "big" annual art show - hit the bake sale tent and had a slice of apple pie.

    I just rode 2 hrs and 20 minutes in 14 degrees. My Steelers play in 2 hrs so I'm saving my "pie earnings" and will redeem the calorie credits for beer, hot dogs and nuts a little later.

    I rode 50 miles with a couple of friends and then ate this slice of sweet potato pie.

    Yes. You are allowed to think about eating a piece of pie.

    I attended a 100th birthday party today, but they served carrot cake, not pie.

    I wish I'd of opened this thread earlier as my wife was making muffins when I got home. I ate 2 of them for 200 calories (they're small) but I'd have much rather had a big ol piece of rhubarb pie!
    Why wasn't this put on the national news this morning. I got a 67 mile ride in at 17.9 MPH average, so I feel I deserved a warning before hand. Now all I can do is salivate and dream of what might have been.

    Hmmmmm... by all means, but as this is the 50+ forum... maybe a few of us can give everyone a few days advance notice, as some have suggested should have happened in the first place? Otherwise, it'll sneak up with us unaware.

    Then, no one will be caught without the necessary PIE for the occasion.

    67 miles and no pie? My word!

    Do the Pies of March come the day before the Ides of March? Ack!

    Cheers, everyone!

    That explains it! I took my wife and sons to watch the USA and Chile national soccer teams play Saturday night. On the long drive home I kept thinking of pie. I pulled into the Vons near our home (glad they are open at midnight) and grabbed a chocolate cream pie. By the time we dug in, it was officially Sunday. Guess I have a pie sixth sense. Must be a 50+ super power.

    Missed the opportunity yesterday, but I had a great piece of pecan pie today at lunch while I read about biking on BF.
