The "Off" Season has been renamed to be "Eat A TON Of Pastries" Season

This weekend marks the 4th weekend in a row that a yummy pastry has been somehow been involved in/during/after a weekend run or ride.

This is also the 4th weekend in a row in what is called the "off season."

Off season?


Are you following my logic here?


Out of these four weekends, three of them I have gone to the Pleasantville, NY farmers market where there is this bakery that shows up that sells these incredible apple tarts. They also make blueberry pie! I love me anything blueberry so I finally broke down and bought a blueberry pie. Oh so good!

Taste Tests have been positive. More might be needed ;)

I met up Kristin @ The Lazy Marathoner again for another ride in her territory. This time she introduced me to another bakery up along the Hudson, this time in Nyack, NY @ The Runcible Spoon.

I walked in craving something blueberry, took one look in the first case of goodies that I saw, and found this:

Will it pass my taste test?
I think so!
They called it the Berry Berry tart. AMAZING! It had cranberries and cherries as well as blueberries. Oh thank you Triathlon Gods! haha!

I told Kristin we should do the trifecta: Fort Lee to Bunbury's to The Runcible Spoon back to Bunbury's and back. I think I would die from shear happiness!!!


  1. Oh yum! Now I want to make another raspberry (my weakness) pie!

  2. :) I love following your weekend adventures! Wish I had great bakeries around here to ride too... would make it so much more enjoyable!

  3. yummmm
    speaking of pastries, i currently have banana bread in the oven. lol

  4. I am glad to see that I am not the only one that has the same "off-season" routine!

  5. Well it is about time you renamed the off season! I was thinking that you were going to have rename the blog to "SwiCycloRunEat... tales of a pastry loving age group triathlete" haha

  6. I like the way you do off season!

  7. I am with Jon! I found myself cruising the bakery at the grocery store this afternoon. And I may or may not have tossed some snickerdoodles in the cart!

  8. Yummy! What a great way to spend the off season!

  9. Wow you are def in good form with the pastries! I like your game plan for the new bike loop. Most of all I cant believe you guys can still ride! so cold here...


  10. Yum!!! I would definitely be doing the same thing if I had those places close to me!

  11. Mmm I love pie - apple pie is my favorite. But I will eat any pie that is put in front of me. I like the idea of an apple pie ride.

  12. Mmm...suddenly off season looks like the best idea ever!

  13. Well, if you say so, I will gladly participate in the pastry season! I am a serious carboholic, and pastries rank quite highly in my addiction

  14. Oooh yum. I guess I should re-route my bike rides so I can swing by a bakery!

  15. Sadly I hit up the bakeries during my season as well! In addition to the pastry season, I think I can call mine the "party season!" ;) Great ride again, I so wish we were out there today though!


Don't be shy! Leave me a comment!
