French Pastry Day

5.20.2014 31m
Took a really nice mid-day ride in Pittsburgh with K, S, and R. The route looked like this:



We made our first provisions stop at La Gourmandine:


We rode up through the cemetery, out to Whole Foods (excellent guacamole samples, thank you!) then through EastSide to Bakery SquareSQUARED and out to Squirrel Hill. Stopped at ProBikes for obligatory homage.

Parked at Commonplace Coffee for really good coffee, then K and R ducked into Gaby et Jules for take-away pastry wonders. Rode Murray Ave. looking for a new mural site, didn't find it.

Took Pocussett and Schenley Park to Boundary Ave and Junction Hollow Trail, and then the Jail Trail home. A very nice ride.

In the evening, I dropped the car off at the garage (because cars are like that) and rode my bike home for some more miles. total for the day: 31 miles
