2015 means the most special pi day ever: March 14, 2015 = 3.1415! Let’s gather at 10:26:53 a.m. and get our math on. Yeah, that’s “pi time” in the Mountain Time Zone, but we’re going to just ignore DST and take that hour back for the day.

Meridian Park (4649 Sunnyside Ave N, Seattle, WA 98103)
RSVP on Facebook
I won’t have pie for you, but we’ll do lots of fun stuff with circles and spheres. Any and all math jokes and pi/pie jokes welcome!
Meet us in Meridian Park–at the bike rack by the circular basketball court. It’s easiest to bike into Meridian Park from south side via Bagley Ave N. We’ll hang out for a bit of running around and chasing bubbles (spheres!) then take a nice, little two-mile bike ride to the empty Green Lake wading pool where I will set up a circular course with our teeter totter.
Note: longtail cargo bikes have a wheelbase length incompatible with the teeter totter.
Note two: you’re not allowed to ask me how I know this.
You’re encouraged to bring circular snacks and I’ll have clementines for everyone. For those in need of a proper lunch, Zeek’s Pizza is right across the street, or we’ll turn a blind eye if you must grab a rectangular sandwich from Urban Bakery.
We’ll start massing back up at 1pm and head to Mighty-O Donuts for the Seattle Family Biking monthly doughnut meetup (if you’re in the Facebook group, RSVP here. Not gonna lie, I hope they’re out of apple fritters by this time of day so everyone opts for round doughnuts. Mighty-O is a Bicycle Benefits participant with buy one, get one doughnuts. Stickers are available there for $5 if you don’t have one yet and want to join the revolution.
