Good list Leon. You might throw in an alternate location for us central Tex people that don't usually travel above the metro mess to Ponder and Whitesboro. Sissy's and Downtown Cafe in Thorndale or Murphy's in Winchester would work. Just my 2 cents.

I think Whitesboro is the launching point for the Bonus Pie Run, isn't it?

Nothing to stop the Southerners from bringing together their own confederation and rebelling against Northern oppression by calling a run elsewhere that month.

Its something to Ponder, just the same. :rofl:

Hey, where's the person who usually does up the cool maps showing all the locations? I mean, I could do it but they were really good with the custom icons and stuff.

Interesting, when I drop in on street view for The Jay and Elm Creek, there's the building and the sign right where google says it is.
because you fixed it! if you punch that address into google maps and also punch it into a Garmin GPS unit it will take you to the wrong place.

we have run into this problem on a couple other runs.

thank you for making the map!

Also, I didn't put on the Bonus Pie. I figure those lucky enough to do that pie run will know where it is. The rest of us don't need to be depressed and have it screw up the zoom on the map. :D

Oh I know exactly where it is! It is where the pavement is smooth and grippy and none of it is level or straight.
Just one curve or hill right after the other for mile after mile.
Where you can ride all week in the twisties and never cover the same road twice.

Tell me again why we have a bad word filter on this site?

Leon,

...diverse selections across the state. I am glad you got a new place west of Junction on the pie run roster. It's a good excuse to continue to Ft. Davis after eating pie.

I was originally looking at a place further west but just had a uneasy feeling about it.
Maybe next year.

Too late this year's list, but I just got to thinking that a pie run in a State Park might be a good combo.

Perhaps one in the Davis Mountians? Anyone know if the restaurant at Indian Lodge has pie?

The Black Bear does have pie, in fact it was a Pie Run location back in 2008:

Davis Mountains State Park is closed for renovations though until March. However the lodge and the Black Bear will remain open.

I guess this has escalated to a double-dog dare at this point.

Kinda reminds me of calling Marty McFly "chicken"

I think it will be a short list ...

BBRSP serves meals at the bunkhouse, but it might not be a road many Pie-runners would traverse even if the park staff could be cajoled into baking pies.

Indian Lodge/Black Bear and BBNP in The Basin are the only others that I can think of.

Lunchtime, which usually means about 11am at the location.

Of course, if you want to join a ride, that varies depending on the group, how far away they are, and how much they'll deviate from the straightest route. :D

Leon, great job putting together the pie run schedule, thanx for all the work. Gonna try and make more of these this year, maybe we could meet up for some of them and ride together in a group ride. Hope to anyway.

Jason
