    Turned 52 today, but can't quite earn the pie...

    Just finished my ride today. I can't be too disappointed with the 30 miles; it is the longest solo I have ever ridden. I am working toward a Century ride in September, so maybe I can pick up a slice closer to that date. http://runkeeper.com/user/sparrish92/activity/92046056


    Did I read somewhere that the 52 miles can be accomplished at any point in your 52nd year?

    Your map is private.

    Doesn't count unless you ate some pie.

    A 30 mile ride in the books is a good one.

    Updated the map setting - thanks for the heads-up. I'll get the pie when I complete the whole 52 miles

    Pie can be had on any ride- not just serious ones. That little ride down to the Coast- and find a cafe that sells Pie. May have to find the right cafe and that may be more awkward than trying to find the LBS.

    But you can ride your age anytime in the year. Just don't do 53 miles 2 days before your 53rd birthday- It won't count.

    Age Ride =/= Pie Ride. Pie Ride =/= Age Ride. But Age Ride + Pie Ride = Double the Fun!

    A 30-miler definitely earns a piece of pie.
    That which does not kill me has made a massive tactical blunder.

    You almost did a metric age ride so PIE is allowed.

    Hell, You're a grown up old guy!!!
    32 miles is worth two slices of pie.
    Who are we to tell you how far you have to ride to deserve pie!!!
    Been chatting to a 14 year old girl online. She's funny, sexy and flirty. Now she tells me she is an undercover cop! How cool is that at her age!?

    You are 52. Do you mean to tell me that there is someone who tells you that you can't have pie? Only your wife has that privilege.

    Actually his mother can also deny him pie along with his wife.

    There are some loopholes in that whole "pie earning" thing. If your attorney can't help you with it, PM me and I'll help you out.





    Second thought. Don't PM me. If you can't figure out the pie loopholes on your own maybe you don't belong here.

    He belongs here, he is 50+, but if he can't figure out pie loopholes, he doesn't deserve pie.

    ok, ok, ok...I was denying myself the slice of pie, but no longer! I WILL find a fine pie cafe and ride there immediately. Anyone know of a decent place in the Raleigh NC area for this? I will certianly post a pic once this is accomplished.

    Therin lies the REAL issue. As much as we like talking about pie stops, good ones are hard to find.

    Good luck.
