Pedal x 2 = π

There’s an old saying that pedaling a bike makes pie taste sweeter.

Well, they say that on Bainbridge Island, at least.

Islanders have for six years turned out for the annual Bike for Pie ride, a short jaunt that trades a little sweat for a wedge of homemade goodness.

This year’s 6-mile ride on Sunday will wind from Winslow to Fort Ward State Park, where a plethora of pies await.

Dana Berg, president of the Squeaky Wheels bicycle advocacy group, will lead the ride. The 2008 Bike for Pie t-shirt, which will be available for purchase at Fort Ward, was designed by bicyclist and artist Peggy Brunton.

And the best part: the pie’s free.

The wheels start rolling from the Marge Williams Center on Winslow Way at 10 a.m.
