PIE RIDE: We will ride north on the Burke-Gilman Trail to the Hillcrest Bakery, www.hillcrestbakery.com, in Bothell, just beyond Blyth Park, in downtown Bothell. We then take a pie, brownie, doughnut, cheesecake or cookie break at the bakery. There is also another doughnut location about 1/2 block east on Main Street called the Countryside Doughnut Shop for another option. Coffee is also available at both locations. We will be there for about 30 minutes and then return to Matthews Beach. Helmets and a functioning bicycle are required.
