More Photos from the Sweet Ride: Pie Edition

We posted some of Hyedie’s great photos from the Pie Ride yesterday (and Dandyhorse did a post about it too!), and I thought I’d share some photos I took too.

I was leading the ride through a unique route through industrial, residential, rich and poor neighbourhoods, through pedestrianized streets and car-free bridges… and didn’t get any photos of the ride (thankfully Hyedie did), but snapped a lot at each pie place!

We started out at Madeleine’s Cherry Pie and Ice Cream Shop.  It looks small from the front, but the back opens up in a large dining area and what I’m told is the very nicest patio anywhere in the neighbourhood:

Here we are relaxing on the patio… it was so nice, it took a while for us to get on our bikes.

We finally got going on an interesting ride (again, check Hyedie’s great photos for some ride pics) and ended up at the Canadian Pie Company near Queen & Broadview. They have sweet AND savoury pies here, and if you’re gonna go… go HUNGRY. They PACK those pies with filling.
