CLEAR LAKE, Iowa - Some bicyclists pedaled for pie this morning in Clear Lake as part of the North Iowa Touring Club's "Pie Ride" Saturday morning.

The two-wheeled event offered three routes for participants; a casual 14-mile ride around the lake, a 52-mile ride that led riders out into the country, or a 66-mile loop by doing two laps around the lake.

These bicyclists weren't just burning calories; they also had the opportunity to refuel with some carbs, including many kinds of pie, and a spaghetti lunch.

To top it off, they received a gift certificate to Wayne's Ski and Cycle.

Funds raised from the event go to the NITC to promote outdoor activities and bicycling road safety.
