Bike for Pie training ride

I can’t wait for Bike for Pie this summer! More information and registration should be available on the Squeaky Wheels site soon, but in the meantime, here are the details from the flyer I got at Chilly Hilly:

Bike for Pie
Sunday August 19, 2012
Bainbridge Island
Scenery + Bikes + Pie + Fun
Challenge Ride – 32 miles
Family Ride – 12 miles
Register online at: www.squeakywheels.org
Or pick up forms at Classic Cycle and BI Cycles, Bainbridge Island

In the meantime, I’m in training: biking then pie-eating. Today’s training ride was a couple miles–uphill, that’s crucial–to West Woodland Park Playground to meet up with Jen of Ballard Greenways and her friend who is in the process of getting her mountain bike turned into an Xtracycle by LionTail Cycles. Jen rides with her son using a Burley Piccolo trailercycle, which has gears and is very stable, unlike cheapie trailer bikes. It’s a wonderful way to attach one kid behind the back of a bike.

After the playground we headed across the street to A la Mode Pies. Between the seven of us, we had slices of Blue Hawaiian, Spiced Apple, Mexican Chocolate Mousse, and Marionberry & Hazelnut. Part of Bike for Pies training is photo-documenting the pie:

I can personally only vouch for the Marionberry & Hazelnut–it was great!

Today’s miles: 4.5 miles
April cumulative: 94.1 miles

    • Bummer!! But then it’ll just be a less stressful visit when you come during a mellower week/weekend. We can still take the ferry to Bainbridge Island…or we can eat pie here…or we can eat chocolate here.

  1. Still life with pie!

    It was lots of fun and the pie was fantastic. I’m still annoyed that I’ll be out of town for the official Bike for Pie, but I’m happy to provide whatever training support I can!

      • It was great to meet you! We had fun, but I wished I brought my bike. We’ve been all over Ballard today with it! Great fun!
