I liked the one where I went in October or November, it was somewhere past Gonzales. They had a good salad bar.
Where was that again?

It was Murphy's in Winchester (if the County Seat falls through).
It is a nice ride to get there, right next to nowhere.

ok, we have a winner. four reasons
it is reasonably close to Lampasas
the town name
they got Kolaches
they got smoked meat
negatives:
they don't have pie
negated because they do have kolaches, and kolaches are easier to transport than pies.

Sometimes... they do have pies for sale.... & different flavors of bread pudding....cakes... etc.
In the market/bakery

I can ask about having a selection of pie in the restaurant.... I kno they have deserts for diners.

Is it too late to offer input? It would be nice to combine March's pie run with the Texas Mile in Victoria. I understand if it is too late. Sorry I didn't have time to visit today.Texas Mile in Victoria

Or, switch March and October ... just a thought.

I'm going for the Trinity site. It was the site of the first nuclear fission reaction. A little matter was converted to pure energy. It happened quickly.

Careful, they won't let Russians in... That means the Ural has to park outside. /s

Quick question: So, are Carl (SRAD) and I the only active TWTers based in West Texas at this point? I've often thought of organizing one of these pie runs for somewhere other than near and east of the I-35 corridor, but I've always been scared that only two of us would show for it.

Thoughts?

Chicago pile-1 on 2nd December 1942 was first man made fission reaction. Sorry!
Trinity test was July 16th 1945 the first fission bomb. It had a yield of 20 thousand tons of TNT

There are now four places that do pie in pie town

We have had many pie runs west of I-35 and there are at least three west of 35 this year.
runs to deep west only have had folks from back east show up.

The Trinity Site expanded the tour from one to two days recently. Timing works well with the April pie run.

Another place to consider: Maxine's in Bastrop. They make all their pies and the pies are delicious!!! Food is good too, big long tables for seating. If placed on the pie run chart, I could look into reserving tables for everyone, I live 3 miles from Maxine's.
Oh...and will someone set up an awesome Google map again! I've an awesome bike now, and wanderlust has hit me fully. I can make some of the pie runs!

Is there some reason why the bonus Pie Run in Pietown can`t be moved to Friday the 31st so people that have to work on Monday can come back on Sunday???:rider:

Can't wait to ride to these again. I will be back in Texas this summer. Took me 8 months to figure out I shouldn't have left.

here we go one last time
Is there, or will there be a 2018 schedule? I only ask because I'll be riding in Texas at the end of August and would like to attend if it's anywhere near my route. I haven't been to a Pie Run since Hutto in 2010 when we rode over from Phoenix for lunch.
