|Bike For Pie Date Set -- August 18 -- and Registration is Open|
Registration is now open for what might be the Northwest's most original cycling event - Bike for Pie. Squeaky Wheels' signature event combines four great elements - bicycling, Bainbridge Island scenery, summer weather and, of course, pies. There are again two routes available - a challenging 32-mile ride that loops around the island and features a rest stop with savory pies hosted by Friends of the Farm, and the family-friendly 12-mile ride. You are welcome to choose whichever you think will pan out best for you and your family. Both include a mouth-watering selection of fruit pies served at Fort Ward, which is now under the management of Bainbridge Island Metropolitan Park District.
Entry fees for 2013 are as follows:
Challenge ride (two pie stops) - Adult = $20; Child,14 and under, $10
Family ride (one pie stop) - Adult = $10; Child, 14 and under, $5
There are three ways to complete the registration process:
OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
Day of Ride: Our desk for the ride opens at 8:30 on 8/18. The Challenge Ride has a "rolling start" -- meaning you start when you like, any time from 8:30 - 9:15; the Family Ride will depart at 10:30 as a big happy group. If you are riding in the Family Ride, please arrive at the Marge Williams Center after 9:15.
Registration Form and Waiver: The registration form accommodates up to four family members, and each family member registered on the same form must still each complete a waiver so feel free to photocopy the waiver. Or pick up a waiver on the day of the ride - we'll have plenty on hand. As per the instructions on the registration form, you can mail your waiver with your registration, but if you would like to help and speed up the process on ride day, please print out your waiver and bring it with you to the ride.
