Just got back from 2+ wonderful days of riding in Lanesboro MN, on the Root River Trail. As anyone familiar with the area knows, there is a fabulous pie shop along the trail in Whalan. Having ridden 22 RAGBRAI’S I’m no stranger to great pie, but this shop had something I had not experienced; Blubarb Pie (Blueberry,Rhubarb). I have to say, it was the best Rhubarb and/or Combination I have ever tasted.
This being our first trip to Lanesboro, I don’t know if this is a local favorite, or a Minnesota thing. We did see the same flavor offered at another place.
So to all those prospective 2012 RAGBRAI pie stands, I put forth the challenge/(shameless personal request), to match our neighbors to the north, and serve the best Blubarb Pie a biker has ever tasted,
