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.

Photos and Re-Cap from the Sweet Ride: Pie Edition

Over on her Cupcake Ride blog, Hyedie has posted a great re-cap of the Pie Ride we had this past Saturday.

Here are a few photos from her Flickr set from the ride (and I’ll be posting some later today or tomorrow as well), but be sure and read her full post here.

Reminder! The Pie Ride is Tomorrow!

The Latest and Greatest Sweet Ride is tomorrow, and we’re starting and ending the ride with Pie! :)


 

We’ll be starting off at Madeleine’s Cherry Pie and Ice Cream up near Bathurst and Dupont and finishing way down in the Queen and Broadview area at the Canadian Pie Company!

We’re not releasing our route,  (mainly because it’s hard to get onto Google Maps due to some car-free thoroughfares that Google doesn’t know are bike-friendly), but it’ll be interesting… we’ll be going through LOTS of different neighbourhoods in a relatively short period of time, as well as some hidden routes that not many people know about!  Curious, aren’t you? You should come on our Pie Ride!

Sweet Ride: Pie Edition

If you’ve been following along with our Sweet Rides, you’ll remember that in April we had a Cupcake Edition, and in June we had a … well, let’s call it a Bakery Edition (you can read about the issues we had) and now it’s almost August, so Hyedie of the Girls Cupcake Ride and I are planning our next CO-ED food ride…

This time, we’re talking, eating and biking PIE!!!

We’ll be starting off at Madeleine’s Cherry Pie and Ice Cream up near Bathurst and Dupont and finishing way down in the Queen and Broadview area at the Canadian Pie Company!

We aren’t releasing our route just yet (and it’s hard to get onto Google Maps due to some car-free thoroughfares that Google doesn’t know are bike-friendly), but it’ll be interesting… we’ll be going through LOTS of different neighbourhoods in a relatively short period of time, as well as some hidden routes that not many people know about!  Curious, aren’t you? You should come on our Pie Ride!
