A Sport for Athletic Gluttons: Pie Racing
Pie racing is a fairly new event at the Massachusetts Bicycle Coalition's annual Biking Festival. The 6.5-mile bike race has three 'pie stops', at which competitors race against time to try and eat a slice of pie before heading off on their merry way. Some competitors choose to furiously ram the pie down their gullet while others choose a more patient eating approach but regardless of how you eat it, you must swallow it completely before re-mounting your bike. It kind of brings a whole new meaning to the term 'carbo-loading', doesn't it?
The race happens on August 25th if you're interested. Make sure to leave your best jersey at home -- the race is bound to be a bit messy.
