Later this week is international Pi Day, the celebration of all things circular.

I usually celebrate by cycling to a local park, meeting a bunch of my friends there, and playing baseball, volleyball, and/or frisbee before a picnic of pizza pie, shepherd pie, and fruit pie.

This year I'll be in the wilds of California, camping, so I don't know how well it will work.

What are YOUR plans for Pi Day?

Yeah, I overshot by a little over a mile as well. 32.67 - close enough, the pie is in the oven.

I overshot a bit as well, for an eleven pi day!! Hit Shari's for Pi Day and ran into Podkey, who recognized me! This year I tried the Sour Cream Lemon pie - yum. I just picked up one slice - there are so many different diets, gluten intolerances, and so forth going on at home these days that bringing home a full pie seems a fools errand.

Oh good point I did see Kirkej picking up Pi at Shari's Fri nite.

I ended up riding 3.4059 pi units on Friday.

On this International Pi Day, I was supposed to ride in the Arizona Tour de Cure for the American Diabetes Association. The event was changed to a "virtual" ride or walk. So I'm riding to my Dad's house, to spend time with my sister, brother-in-law, and my niece, as we continue to sift through my dad's stuff.

I went just a little over 10xPI at 32.05 miles riding laps in Central Park after stopping at Two Little Red hens Bakery on 2nd Ave in Yorkville for a slice of cherry pie.

Rode 8.16 x pi, but didn't have any pie. My niece and brother-in-law tried to get that and some other stuff, but the local Safeway supermarket was super busy (mobbed, from how they described it).
